The Cayuga Nation has opened its fourth casino in the Finger Lakes, marking what it called a significant chapter in the tribe’s local history.

Positioned on the Cayuga Nation’s historical reservation, this Class II gaming facility comes on the heels of a pivotal land trust decision. This recent ruling, validating the sovereignty and rights of the Cayuga Nation, not only strengthens the tribe’s deep-rooted connection to the land but also catalyzes economic prospects beneficial for both the Nation and the broader community.


LakeSide Entertainment 4, as the new venture is named, underscores the tribe’s relentless effort to buttress the region’s economy, uphold its rich cultural legacy, and offer premier gaming experiences. Clint Halftown, expressing his enthusiasm, remarked, “This establishment symbolizes our community’s progress. Our intent is twofold: to deliver unparalleled entertainment and to drive economic advancement, enhancing life quality for our Nation and surrounding community.”

Featuring 128 gaming machines, the casino stands as the largest within the Cayuga Nation’s portfolio. A collaboration with Everi Gaming brings an array of gaming choices to patrons. Adhering to its commitment, the new facility will emphasize responsible gaming, ensuring a wholesome experience for visitors.

The grand opening, scheduled for August 11, promises an array of attractions, including food, giveaways, and live broadcasts. The festivities kick off with a sneak peek at 10 AM, with the main event commencing at 3 PM. The community and media members are cordially invited to partake in this landmark celebration. The Cayuga Nation remains thankful to the community and is eager to deepen its ties, continually enriching the local economy and safeguarding its esteemed heritage.
