ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — The Oneida Indians say they will offer sports betting on their central New York land in the wake of a new U.S. Supreme Court decision.

The Oneida Indian Nation made the announcement Monday shortly after justices struck down a federal law that largely forbade state-authorized sports gambling.

The Oneidas say they have been making preparations to offer sports betting at venues on the Oneida reservation in anticipation of the court ruling. They plan to offer sports betting soon.

The Oneidas say the 1993 compact with New York that cleared the way for their Turning Stone Casino in Verona allows them to offer any game that is permitted in the state.

The tribe this year opened its third casino in central New York.
