ISLANDIA, N.Y. (AP) — Long Island's first video lottery casino has opened in Suffolk County.
PLAY: Long Island’s Only Hotel & Casino. Come experience Jake’s 58 Hotel & Casino, the newest gaming floor on Long Island featuring the pulse pounding games you love.
The casino’s first 265 video lottery terminals opened at 1 p.m., just hours after the state Gaming Commission issued a certificate allowing the facility to open at Jake’s 58 Hotel & Casino, on the north service road of the Long Island Expressway. Dozens of casino customers already had lined up in the hotel a half-hour before the betting parlor opened.

As part of a closed-door discussion this week, New York State lawmakers have been pushing for a proposal to build a casino on Long Island. State Sen. Phil Boyle and Assemblyman Steve Engelbright are trying to allow 2,000 video lottery machines at Off-Track Betting (OTB) sites throughout Nassau and Suffolk, according to a report from News 12.
Jake’s 58 Hotel & Casino (formerly Islandia Marriott Long Island hotel) is situated along the Long Island Expressway North Service Rd and 10 minutes from Long Island MacArthur Airport in Islandia, New York.
But long before as many as four of those casinos are licensed, built and opened, officials on Long Island are expecting to reap a financial windfall from gamblers at new electronic slot machine parlors, known fondly if derisively in the gambling industry as slots in a box, in Nassau and Suffolk Counties.
