The Gaming Compact
In 2002, the Seneca Nation signed a Gaming Compact with the State of New York under the federal Indian Gaming Regulatory Act to cooperate in the establishment of three “class III gaming” casino facilities, which included slot machines, table games and other amenities and offerings typical of Las Vegas style casinos. In 2013, an amended version of the Compact was agreed upon between the Seneca Nation and New York State. In 2017, the Seneca Nation fulfilled its obligation and is no longer required to remit payments to New York State.
