AKWESASNE, N.Y. (WWNY) - As New York State prepares to allow for casino sports betting, the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino has announced a new partnership.

It’s working with The Stars Group which will, according to a casino press release, “support Akwesasne Mohawk Casino Resort’s introduction of retail sports betting to the North Country Region.”

In the meantime, the casino has been working on the construction of “Stick’s Sports Bar & Sports Book,” a luxury sports lounge. The 5,200 square-foot venue is expected to open in the fall.

In June, the state gaming commission approved rules governing sports betting at four private casinos, and tribal owned casinos.
