Seneca Gaming New York Properties Overview

The Seneca Nation of Indians owns and operates three Native American casino properties in Western New York through the Seneca Gaming Corporation.

Plus, the group also owns and operates a handful of poker rooms, bingo halls, and small gaming operations in the area through its Seneca Gaming and Entertainment subsidiary.

The three native American casino properties include:

  • Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino in Niagara Falls, NY
  • Seneca Allegany Resort & Casino in Salamanca, NY
  • Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino in downtown Buffalo, NY

Seneca Gaming and Entertainment facilities include:

  • The Niagara Falls Poker Room at the Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino
  • Seneca Poker Room, Bingo Room and Game Room at Salamanca nearby the Seneca Allegany Resort & Casino
  • Bingo Room and Game Room at Irving
  • Game Room at Oil Spring

The Seneca Nation of Indians struck a gaming compact with the state in 2002 gaining exclusive rights to build and operate Native American casinos in Western New York. In fact, The Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino opened later that year in Niagara Falls. The Seneca Allegany Resort & Casino in Salamanca began operating in 2004. Plus, The Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino in downtown Buffalo opened in 2007.

Already offering a form of online casino

The Seneca Nation of Indians and its Native American casinos in Western New York aren’t just favorites to go online if New York legislators ever legalize and regulate online casinos. In fact, they’re already there.

The organization is already online, offering more than 50 slots and nine video poker titles through its IPlaySeneca website. Plus, the free-to-play online casino games are also available through mobile apps for iOs and Android users. In addition, players can also link IPlaySeneca accounts to their Seneca Player’s Club memberships.

No real-money gambling is offered through IPlaySeneca. However, that’s probably just the flip of a switch away if New York legislators ever decide to get behind the idea.

Senaca online poker

New York lawmakers were considering legalizing and regulated online poker in the first quarter of 2017. In fact, should they get around to turning one of the many online poker bills into law, the Seneca Nation of Indians and its Native American casinos in Western New York are likely to be one of the first groups to get involved.

With the launch of IPlaySeneca, the Seneca Gaming Corporation has proven to be early iGaming adopters. Plus, they also operate two poker rooms through Seneca Gaming & Entertainment in Western New York, hosting major tournaments throughout the year. Should it become legal, operating an online poker room would be a logical next step for the organization.
