The Islandia Village Board voted to approve Suffolk OTB’s plan to expand Jake’s 58 casino.
Construction will begin this summer.
The project is slated to be complete by 2025.
The OTB plan calls for doubling the casino’s video lottery gaming terminals from 1,000 to 2,000, adding hundreds of parking spaces and refurbishing hotel rooms. The expanded casino would also feature new bars and restaurants and a 800-foot-long sound wall to address concerns from nearby homeowners about noise from the casino.
