VERONA, N.Y. (AP) — The Oneida Indians will start allowing sports betting at their upstate New York casino this week.

The Oneida Indian Nation and Caesars Entertainment plan a grand opening event on Thursday at their Turning Stone casino in Verona.

New York is the ninth state to permit and regulate sports betting after the state’s Gaming Commission approved regulations earlier this year.

Casinos around the state are starting to take bets.

The operation at Turning Stone will be called The Lounge with Caesars Sports.
