Delaware North wins deal on New York casino

"The company will build and run a casino with 4,500 slot machines at Aqueduct Racetrack, which will add 1,200 jobs in Queens and another 50 at its Buffalo headquarters. The state will receive upwards of $1 million in annual slot revenue after the casino is completed in 15 months.

"A stalemate at the Capitol was broken when Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos backed the Delaware North bid following support from a key Queens Senate Republican, Serpin Maltese, who represents the track. Maltese had raised objections about the Delaware North bid because it was not sweeping enough in its plans to make the casino a destination- type resort.

"Gov. David A. Paterson and Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver recently approved the Delaware North bid. But backing by Skelos was needed, and Skelos aides Wednesday said he now agrees with the Buffalo firm's selection..."
