Empire City Casino opens VIP gaming floor and lounge

Posted: Updated:

You can now be a VIP at Empire City Casino with a brand new exclusive gaming floor and lounge.

While cutting the ribbon on Wednesday, officials ushered in a new era of MGM's ownership of the casino marking the first major changes since the casino was purchased.

Members can now also sign up for M Life rewards, which connect and extend benefits from the Yonkers casino to 20 MGM Properties.

Officials say the upgrades mark an important step to making an impact on Westchester's economy. "The $300 million of this property contributes to education in the state of New York every single year to the 1,200 men and women that work here that have careers with our property; we want to grow all those numbers," says Ed Domingo, Empire City Casino senior vice president.

MGM estimates it has more than 9 million visitors per year.
