The Tioga Downs casino in the Southern Tier is celebrating progress on its expansion project.
Tioga held a "topping off" ceremony Monday to mark work done so far on its multi-million dollar expansion.
The racetrack and video casino, 30 miles west of Binghamton, was recommended last year for a fourth upstate New York license for a full casino. A final decision is pending.
Licenses have already been issued for casinos in Schenectady, the Catskills and the Finger Lakes.
