New York’s newest casino, Resorts World Hudson Valley (RWHV), celebrated its grand opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, December 28. Executives from Genting, which owns the casino, were on hand for the celebration, along with local elected officials and community leaders. Guests were treated to a traditional Chinese lion dance performance.
“What a gift to spend some time this holiday season welcoming guests and visitors to Resorts World Hudson Valley,” said Robert DeSalvio, President, Genting Americas East. “Along with our partners in Orange County, we are elated the casino is now open for business and we can’t wait for the area to begin to reap the benefits. We’ve received such a warm welcome from the Hudson Valley community and hope residents swing by to check us out. We can think of no better way to ring in 2023 than by celebrating right here with us at Resorts World Hudson Valley.”
Located in Orange County at the Newburgh Mall, just 60 miles north of Manhattan, RWHV features 60,000 square feet of gaming and hospitality space, including 1,200 state-of-the-art slot machines and electronic table games, as well as the Resorts World Bet Sports Bar. The casino will play a crucial role in a revitalization plan to benefit current tenants at the mall and attract new ones.
The opening of RWHV brings 250 new full-time jobs with an average annual wage of $72,000 (including salary and benefits).
