US – Genting to open Resorts World Hudson Valley next year

By - 8 June 2021

Genting Malaysia, which owns Resorts World New York City and Resorts World Catskills in Sullivan County, has said it hopes to debut Resorts World Hudson Valley, its new casino in Newburgh, New York, by 2022.

Meghan Taylor, Vice President of government affairs and public relations for Resorts World, said: “We look forward to breaking ground soon and delivering on our commitment to create good-paying union jobs for local residents, help revitalize the Newburgh Mall, serve as an economic engine in the Hudson Valley, and begin generating revenue for New York State’s public schools.”

The projected opening follows Newburgh’s Town Board approval of an agreement between Monticello Raceway Management and Resorts World Hudson Valley to bring video lottery terminals and an electronic casino to the Newburgh Mall in Orange County, New York.

Genting is looking to operate 1,300 video lottery terminals at the site along with Resort World’s signature lounge, Bar 360. It will create 200 to 225 full-time jobs, averaging $74,000 in annual salary with benefits. The VLT location will generate $3m in annual host fees split by the Town of Newburgh and Orange County.
