“Since the newest Oil Spring facility opened earlier this month, there hasn’t been an empty seat in the house or an empty spot in the parking lot,” SNI President Barry E. Snyder Sr. said at the grand opening ceremony, The Olean Times Herald reported. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to be able to provide a fun and inviting gaming destination for the Southern Tier and beyond.” The tribe is looking to expand the facility. But future plans depend on how well the casino performs, an executive said. Get the Story:
