More than half of New Yorkers surveyed are giving the thumbs up to creating Vegas-style casinos in the Empire State.

A Quinnipiac University poll finds 56-percent of New Yorkers want the state to take a gamble on casinos similar to those in Las Vegas and Atlantic City.

Another 64-percent believe casinos would be good for the economy, while a similar 63-percent say the tables and slot machine joints would lead to an increase in gambling addiction.
