Casino Update

At a tribal referendum last week, the majority of the Shinnecock nation voted against a new contract with Gateway Casino Resorts. The Detroit-based casino developer has played a crucial role in bankrolling the tribe's quest to open a gambling site on Long Island, but many members were suspicious of the new agreement. "While we are of course disappointed in the vote to not move forward at this time with revised business agreements" said Gateway Casino Resorts co-owner Michael Malik, "we do respect the decision of tribal members to have further review and discussions of the new deal points." Hopefully, the tribe will find these new deal points a little more agreeable...we're sitting on a bucket of quarters that we'd rather not take to Coinstar. [Previously, 27 East]
