Turning Stone Resort Casino has earned a total of 18 “Best of Gaming Awards” for 2018 from Casino Player Magazine, an authority in the casino gaming industry, including the #1 Best Overall Gaming Resort in New York State for the third year in a row.

“When we first opened our doors, we knew that with strategic reinvestments, a hardworking staff, and a commitment to offering the best world-class amenities, Turning Stone would become the premier destination resort it is today,” said Ray Halbritter, Oneida Nation Representative and Nation Enterprises CEO. “These latest awards from Casino Player Magazine, spanning across our various amenities, as well as the distinction as being named as the #1 Best Overall Gaming Resort, are truly a testament to what we set out to achieve 25 years ago.”

As Turning Stone celebrates its 25th anniversary, it continues to receive top accolades for its unparalleled amenities and superior guest service. Earlier this year, the internationally-renowned Forbes Travel Guide recognized the resort with three Four Star awards and AAA bestowed three of its elite Four Diamond Awards, distinguishing Turning Stone as the only resort in the entire northeast to earn three of both prominent awards. Turning Stone once again earned the distinguished honor of having three of its restaurants, TS Steakhouse, Wildflowers and Pino Bianco receive Wine Spectator’s highly-respected Awards of Excellence. With three championship-level, 18-hole courses and expansive indoor golf facilities, the resort also earned Golf Digest’s coveted 2018 Editors’ Choice Award for the Best Golf Resort in the Americas in the Northeast/New England region for its second consecutive year.
