New Mohegan Sun casino opens July 17th

June 24, 2008

PLAINS TOWNSHIP, PA - Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs is planning to open its new $208 million facility earlier than expected. The construction which started in May 2007 is ahead of schedule, so the original opening in August has been moved up.

"These guys are working around the clock and that's why we're able to get this door open on July 17," said Jim Wise of Mohegan Sun.

The new casino will be 300,000-square-feet and feature 2,500 slot machines in a circular gambling area. Surrounding the casino floor will be upscale restaurants, bars, live entertainment, and retail shops. The restaurants include a Ruth’s Chris Steak House and a Wolfgang Puck Express. There will be 4,000 parking spaces with 800 for valet service.

Chief executive Bobby Soper said, “There will be some of the newer versions of slots, plus the present favorites. Electronic table games will remain the same for now until new products are approved by state regulators.”

A giant smudge pot, which looks like a huge torch, will be lit outside and visible from the highways.

Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs is owned and operated by the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority based in Connecticut.
