Empire Resorts, Inc., (NASDAQ:NYNY) today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary Monticello Casino and Raceway has added electronic roulette games to its increasingly diverse slot offerings. The introduction of electronic table games continues Monticello Casino and Raceway’s concerted effort to offer a more innovative and exciting gaming experience to its players. In addition to roulette, upon final approval by the New York State Lottery, more electronic table game titles are expected to be introduced in 2011. Over the past year, Monticello Casino and Resort has replaced over 500 games on the casino’s gaming floor adding exciting new options, including Fireball, Quick Hit Platinum, Red Hot Jackpots, IGT Multi-play and Reel Mania. Available overall machine denominations range from a penny to $25.

Commenting on the new electronic roulette games Empire Resorts CEO Joseph D’Amato said, “These games offer all of the fun and excitement of the traditional casino game, but have been adapted for high tech video gaming enjoyment. Based upon my experience with these games in other jurisdictions, our players will enjoy the social experience of community play, but in a private and more comfortable setting."

Monticello Casino and Raceway’s electronic table games feature ten separate easy-to-use touch-screen player stations and a large high-definition LCD game play screen that can be viewed by all players. “The games look, feel and play very similar to the live version with all wagers, odds and payouts the same as a conventional roulette game,” stated Monticello Casino and Raceway General Manager Cliff Ehrlich.

Patrons are welcome to experience all the new games for themselves seven days a week. For information on upcoming promotions and events, visit www.monticellogamingandraceway.com or call 845-794-4100 extension 682.

Monticello Casino and Raceway, located at 204 Route 17B in Monticello, NY, features over 1,000 state-of-the-art slot machines, the Winner’s Circle Buffet, bar and lounge, food court, deli and a variety of guest services including valet parking and coat check.
