SNI should look at this as real competition. They may be holding the $$ and the trump card at present, but supply and demand will catch up with them in the long term.

ALBANY -- Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Thursday that New York's Indian casinos could face competition in their backyards if talks with tribes over his gambling expansion proposal fail to yield results soon.

Cuomo's harder public stance with the tribes comes as he tries to shepherd his proposal to bring three Las Vegas casinos to upstate New York at yet-to-be-identified locations. Lawmakers are considering legislation, and a public referendum to change New York's constitution to allow non-Indian casinos could be on the ballot as early as November.

Three of the six upstate regions Cuomo is looking at already have Indian casinos. The governor said he would not allow a new casino to operate in a region where there is already a casino run by a tribe in good standing with the state. But that could change for tribes that fail to resolve issues with the state in current rounds of talks..."
