Major jackpot milestone is reached as Rivers readies The Landing Hotel for first overnight guests


SCHENECTADY, NY — Slots players at Rivers Casino & Resort Schenectady have been hitting it big, taking home more than $10,000,000 in jackpot payouts less than five months since the property’s grand opening.

The milestone was recently passed when a Schenectady resident playing a “Wonder 4” slot machine hit a jackpot of $1,495.56.

“The gaming floor at Rivers Casino & Resort Schenectady features the latest and greatest in slot machine technology, and we’re introducing new games all the time based on player feedback,” said Mary Cheeks, General Manager of Rivers Casino & Resort Schenectady. “We love to celebrate every time a jackpot is hit, and passing a milestone like this one is definite cause for celebration!”

The major jackpot milestone comes as Rivers readies The Landing Hotel for its first overnight guests. Preparations include a recent hiring fair that drew over 600 applicants. From that pool, The Landing Hotel hired 60 new employees for a variety of hospitality jobs.
