They built it, and they came. Point Place Casino in Bridgeport has announced expansion plans less than 2 years after opening.

The Oneida Nation's 3rd casino opened on March 1 of 2018 with nearly 500 slot machines, 20 classic table games, 2 restaurants, and 2 bars. Since then, CEO Ray Halbritter says overall demand has exceeded their expectations, leading to their growth.

The expansion is already underway and will bring a larger gaming floor with space for an additional 100 slot machines. The additional space allows for a new dealer school for training table game dealers and additional administrative offices.

The expansion will be done in a partnership with Central New York trade unions and is expected to be done by late spring next year.  You can find Point Place Casino on Route 31.
