The Seneca Indian Nation is set to cut the ribbon on its new $130 million Buffalo casino.
The grand opening ceremony is scheduled for Tuesday evening.
The Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino replaces a small, temporary facility the Senecas had been operating at the site.
The new building has 800 slot machines, 18 table games and three restaurants.
The western New York tribe operates three casinos in the region under an agreement with the state of New York that requires the Senecas to share slot machine revenues with the state and host communities. The other casinos are in Niagara Falls and Salamanca.
