Cayuga’s Pull The Plug On SF Bingo Hall

If you want to put a few dollars in the electronic bingo machines, you’ll have to travel to Union Springs. The Cayuga Indians Saturday pulled the plug on their electronic gambling machines at their Lake Side Trading Gas Station on Route 89 in Seneca Falls. The machine were removed over the weekend following last week’s approval by the Seneca County Board of Supervisors of a new law that makes illegal gaming a public nuisance and gave the county the authority to go to court if need be to shut down the Cayuga’s bingo operation. In a press release issued Monday evening Seneca County Sheriff Leo Connolly said that representatives of the Cayuga’s told him the machines were removed by their owners to avoid closure.The Cayuga’s opened their Seneca Falls Bingo Hall in June 2004 with 33-electronic machines. They also operate an electronic bingo hall in the Cayuga County village of Union Springs.
