The Montreign Casino & Raceway is a $1 billion project being built in the Catskills by Empire Resorts. The resort will include a 1.2-million-square-foot casino and an 18-floor hotel with nearly 400 rooms.

As of early May, construction was well underway, with water and sewage systems already installs. Empire Resorts, which is building the casino, plans to open in early spring 2018.

The casino is only part of the plans at the site in Monticello. It’s going in next to a Rees Jones golf course and an indoor family water park. There are also plans for an entertainment “village” near the casino.

The casino will have 2,000 slot machines and 100 table games.

Montreign is taking names of those interested in applying for jobs.
