    From the Buffalo News:

    The Niagara Falls skyline in New York will soon look a little more like the Niagara Falls skyline in Canada.

    The Seneca Gaming Corp. on Monday announced it is building a billboard-sized video screen atop its Niagara Falls casino.

    Like its competitors across the Niagara River, the Seneca casino by month’s end will display the word “CASINO” from atop its 26-story tower.

    But unlike the Canadian gambling halls, the LED screen on the hotel tower will also be able to flash promotions or display live video like a giant television.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    If the Liberal government decides to close Casino Niagara, it will likely cost them tens of millions of dollars.

    Canadian Niagara Hotels, which owns the building Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation leases for the original Niagara Falls casino, said Thursday the 15-year lease extension signed in 2010 has no early-exit clause.

    That means if Liberal Premier Dalton McGuinty decides to shutter Casino Niagara, which opened in 1996, the government will still have to pay out the full cost of the lease, which expires in 2025.
