SULLIVAN, N.Y. — The Oneida Nation is currently looking to hire table-game dealers for its anticipated Point Place Casino, opening this spring in the Madison County town of Sullivan.
Central New Yorkers interested in training to be among the first dealers at the new casino can sign up for the Professional Casino Dealer School, with a 16-week course set to begin Oct. 16 in the Bridgeport area of Sullivan.
Instructors will train dealer-school students for the variety of table games that Point Place Casino will offer, including blackjack and craps. Tuition is $175 with tuition reimbursement available, upon employment.
Those interested can apply here.
The Oneida Indian Nation calls it “just the first wave” of recruitment for Point Place Casino. The $40 million project will create more than 250 permanent jobs and has already created more than 250 local construction jobs.
With a recruitment office in Cicero opening later this month, the casino will be seeking to fill additional full- and part-time culinary, restaurant, retail, operations, and additional gaming positions.
About the casino
Point Place Casino’s smoke-free, 65,000-square-foot facility will include a gaming floor with nearly 500 slot machines and 20 table games.
It will also offer two bars; two counter-service restaurants, including Burgers of Madison County and the newest location of Wicked Good Pizza; along with a second location of Turning Stone’s chocolatier and bakery Opals Confectionary.
The venue will be located on Route 31, near the corner of Bridgeport-Kirkville Road, just a few hundred feet from the Cicero border.
