According to Ars Technica's quote of the NY Constitution, it states in part:
[E]xcept as hereinafter provided, no lottery or the sale of lottery tickets, pool-selling, book-making, or any other kind of gambling, except lotteries operated by the state..., except pari-mutuel betting on horse races..., and except casino gambling at no more than seven facilities..., shall hereafter be authorized or allowed within this state; and the legislature shall pass appropriate laws to prevent offenses against any of the provisions of this section.
However, I could not find the italicized text, nor even the word 'casino,' in the New York State Constitution as posted on the NY Department of State, "As Amended and in Force Since January 1, 2014." Is Ars Technica getting a constitutional quote wrong*, or is there basis for it?
(*): Other than, possibly, the quoted spelling of parimutuel, which may be an error in the constitution. Even within the constitution as linked to, the title and text disagrees with the table of contents, so there seems to be at least one spelling error in there.
