WOODBURY - New York residents will soon vote on a referendum to allow casinos to be built upstate.

If the measure to legalize gambling in New York passes on Election Day, up to four casinos are set to be built.

Whether or not the referendum passes or fails, Long Island will soon get at least two video lottery terminal locations with the potential for a third.

The casinos and video lottery terminals are expected to bring hundreds of millions of dollars into the state’s economy.
