More than a dozen gaming entities are submitting literally tons of paperwork to state regulators today to vie for casino licenses in the first round of siting.

The applications require nearly 200 pieces of information including an explanation as to a construction timeline to the casino’s business plan.

The information being released today is expected to provide specific details on the projects around the state for casino construction, with proposal being picked by the fall by the casino siting board.

The first round of casinos is being limited to four regions north of New York City: the Hudson Valley, the Capital Region and the Southern Tier.

Saratoga Casino and Raceway is applying for two projects, with resorts proposed in East Greenbush near Albany, and a second in Orange County.

Caesars Entertainment Corp., meanwhile, submitted an application for an $880 million resort in Woodbury, a project the company estimates will bring $230 million in annual tax revenue.

In Sullivan County, Empire Resorts, Inc. submitted an application for a $1 billion-plus proposal that includes a waterpark, golf course and “adventure park.”

Howe Caverns Resort and Casino also submitted an application for a Capital Region casino, with operator Full House Resorts proposed to run the casino. One of the company’s original founders is former Chrysler Chairman Lee Iacocca.
