Seneca Falls & Union Springs Bingo Halls To Reopen

You could soon win some money at electronic bingo halls in Union Springs and Seneca Falls. The Cayuga Indian Nation of New York says they will reopen their gaming halls in Seneca and Cayuga Counties whether or not they win federal approval to put their land into a federal trust. The tribes lawyer -Daniel French of Syracuse- tells the Post Standard that the Cayugas have not ruled out the possibility of opening a full scale Class-3 casino in their homeland area. The Cayuga closed the two bingo halls after pressure from both counties following court rulings against the tribe. Seneca and Cayuga County officials say they’ll fight the Cayuga Indians’ application to have their land in those counties placed into a federal trust. County officials were officially notified of the application by the Bureau of Indian Affairs Monday. The counties have 30 days to answer the Bureau’s questions.
