Jake’s 58 Hotel & Casino Review
Jake’s 58 Hotel & Casino is expected to open its doors to the public in February at the Islandia Marriott Long Island hotel situated along the Long Island Expressway North Service Rd, Islandia, New York. Previously, Suffolk OTB had planned to construct a casino at the former Showcase Cinemas property in Medford but local residents and a group of civic organizations filed a lawsuit to stop construction.
However, Islandia's village board unanimously approved Suffolk OTB to construct a slots parlor at the Islandia Marriott Hotel and this will be the first casino in Islandia. Suffolk OTB will be allowed to operate up to 1,000 VLTs (Video Lottery Terminals), OTB simulcasts and two Suffolk Off-Track betting kiosks. The license was granted in a 2013 referendum that allowed for two OTB's to deploy lottery machines immediately, and four big money casinos in upstate New York. In addition, 3 new licenses will be granted "downstate" no sooner than 2020. Delaware North now owns the hotel property to be officially renamed 'Jake's 58' on February 15, 2017.
Delaware North is developing and will operate the gaming venue for Suffolk Regional Off-Track Betting Corp. (SROTB).
The hotel features 279 guestrooms featuring modern amenities such as air-conditioning, a fitness center, indoor pool, and a convention center that covers a floor area of 18,656sq/ft. It also features an elegant restaurant and bar known as Bistro Fifty-Eight serving American cuisine and a wide array of liquid refreshments.
Nevertheless, some residents are still suing the village to stop the casino but renovations are already underway on a part of the hotel that will house the casino. The casino has been estimated to create more than 200 permanent jobs and revenue from the casino is expected to reduce the village taxes by 50%.
