The second casino in Connecticut which is the second largest in the United States is the Mohegan Sun Resort and Casino opened by the Mohegan tribe in 1996. It has over 3000 slots machines and 180 table games. The entertainment resort includes a hotel, restaurants, a sports arena, shops, a spa, entertainment venues, a convention centre along side the casino. It also pays 25% of its revenue from slot machines to the state.
Both land based casinos are waiting to see how the growth of legal online poker will affect their client base and profits. The Governor of Connecticut, D. Molloy is in favour of online gaming and since both of the casinos run by the tribes are so successful it is possible that he may ask them to become involved in Connecticut’s online gaming industry.
