New York Daily News

Resorts World Casino has hit the jackpot since opening in 2011, surpassing $1 billion in total revenue, the operator said Thursday.

The three-floor hub of electronic table games in South Ozone Park has not had its weekly revenue dip below $15 million since Feb. 16, the data show. It had previously been raking roughly $12 million weekly.

The operator has doubled down on its aggressive push to attract city gamblers, launching shuttle bus routes around the city and opening a visitors center in nearby Jamaica.

“Resorts World Casino is not only recapturing New York’s gaming dollars, but also attracting out-of-state dollars due to continued heavy investment in its facilities and marketing programs,” said President Michael Speller.

Some of the revenues are funneled back into the state coffers.
