Akwesasne Mohawk Casino Resort history and current owners
Akwesasne Mohawk Casino Resort operates under the ownership of the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe, one of the eight federally recognized tribes in New York state. It’s also one of three tribes to have signed Class III gambling compacts with the state government.
The facility opened on April 12, 1999. In 2013, it underwent a $74 million expansion and renovation, adding a 150-room hotel with a full-service spa and indoor pools. As part of the reconstruction, the Mohawk Bingo Palace, which was previously on State Route 37, relocated to the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino.
The casino is regulated and overseen by the Tribal Gaming Commission and the New York State Gaming Commission.
