Del Lago Casino officially opens

TYRE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - A new place to gamble, play slots and see some great entertainment has officially opened in Seneca County.

Del Lago Casino in the Town of Tyre opened on Wednesday with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

The line to get into the casino wrapped around the building, with people waiting in the cold for 45 minutes just to be the first in.

Del Lago is slightly different from the Turning Stone. They check your ID right away, like at a bar and most other casinos, to get inside.

The Turning Stone doesn't have a similar checkpoint at the entrance.

Once people were able to get in, crowds rushed to the slots and gaming tables.

Their entertainment venue, The Vine, opens next Friday with the band Bad Company kicking off the performance season. Bad Company’s show is sold out.

The hotel portion of the casino will open later this year.
