LEAD FEATURE: YELLOW BRICK ROAD CASINO At the moment, sports betting in New York must operate from brickand-mortar sportsbooks. Would legalization of online sports betting impact YBR? If New York moves forward with online/mobile sports betting, we’re prepared to provide the best offerings in the state.

About Lynn How did you get your start in gaming, and what led you to Yellow Brick Road? Believe it or not, my first job at a casino wasn’t actually in gaming – I was a hostess at a casino in Atlantic City and was intrigued about a dealer school that was being offered. I enrolled and the rest is history. Throughout my career, I’ve held positions spanning all aspects of a casino – food & beverage, table games, slots, evs – which all gave me the experience that would lead me to join Oneida Nation Enterprises as the General Manager of YBR Casino. I have to say, I really wish I knew about Oneida Nation Enterprises 25 years ago when Turning Stone first opened. The growth here is amazing and Oneida Nation Enterprises is known for creating unique guest experiences. We’re always planning for what’s next, which is exciting to be a part of that constant innovation. What can we expect from Yellow Brick Road Casino in the future? We’re always looking for different ways to expand our guest offerings and continue to provide the best and most innovative experience.
