In addition to fan favorites, Empire City has introduced new games over the last few months such as Wheel of Fortune Wild Sapphires 3D Reels, Jinse Dao Tiger & Ox, Lock It Lin Piggy Bankin, Fortune Coin and others for visitors to enjoy.

“The lifting of the curfew brings us one step closer to a sense of normalcy as we resume regular operating hours for our loyal guests. While capacity restrictions and all health protocols will remain in place to ensure the health and safety of everyone on property, we are excited to continue welcoming back more of our team members and providing guests with additional hours to safely enjoy entertainment,” said Ed Domingo, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer for MGM Resorts’ Northeast Group.

Capacity restrictions remain in effect at no more than 25 percent occupancy and masks are mandatory on premises at all times. Other safety measures , which are part of MGM Resorts’ company wide Seven-Point Safety Plan, include temperature checks of all guests and employees, social distancing throughout the casino floor, hand-washing and sanitation stations throughout the property, and more.

While Empire City Casino will operate daily from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m , on-site restaurants The Pub and Empire City Chophouse will continue to operate with limited hours 5:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. Friday and Saturday nights in accordance with restrictions.
