Seneca Nation expands temporary casino in Buffalo

Buffalo, NY (AP) March 2010

The Seneca Indian Nation has completed a $9 million expansion of its temporary Buffalo casino while leaving on hold plans for a permanent facility.

The expansion unveiled Tuesday added 223 slot machines and 5,300 square feet of space to the Buffalo Creek Casino, which last year saw 541,000 visitors. It was the second expansion since the temporary facility opened in 2007.

Construction of a $333 million permanent casino and hotel complex at the site was halted in 2008 because of the economic downturn, leaving a skeletal steel frame. Seneca Nation President Barry Snyder said the nation intends to complete the project when market conditions improve.

The Senecas now have $20 million invested in the temporary casino, which houses 445 slot machines.
