This graphic from The Middletown Times Herald-Record shows locations of casino proposals in the Catskills region of New York: 3 for Mohegan Tribe; 4 for Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation; and 8 for Stockbridge-Munsee Band.

The Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohican Indians of Wisconsin officially entered the commercial casino race in New York.

The tribe and its partner, Trading Cove New York, submitted a non-refundable $1 million application fee, The Middletown Times Herald-Record reported. Their $750 million casino would be located in the Catskills, a region about 90 miles north of New York City.

The tribe is also pursuing an off-reservation casino at the site under the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act. The Bureau of Indian Affairs published a final environmental impact statement for the project in January.

The deadline to submit the $1 million fee closes at midnight tonight.
