Mohegan Sun

Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy has signed a bill into law that creates a multi-step process for possibly opening a new tribal casino along the Connecticut border.

The Native American Indian tribe that operates the Mohegan Sun casino in Connecticut has reached an agreement to build and run a gaming resort at a South Korean airport.

A bill that would allow two Native American tribes to jointly open and operate up to three gaming facilities in Connecticut has made it past its first legislative panel. The General Assembly’s Public Safety and Security Committee approved the legislation Thursday.

In what’s being framed as a state versus state battle over gambling, Connecticut lawmakers are considering a bill that would allow two Native American tribes to open more casinos. Industry leaders are warning of thousands of lost jobs if nothing is done to combat future casinos in Massachusetts and New York.

Gambling regulators in Massachusetts have voted to award the state’s most lucrative casino license to Wynn Resorts.  It is the third casino license issued in Massachusetts, where voters in less than two months will decide if Las Vegas-style gambling will remain legal.

The Massachusetts Gaming Commission voted 3-1 Tuesday to approve Las Vegas casino mogul Steve Wynn’s plan to build a $1.6 billion resort casino on the site of a former chemical company plant in the city of Everett.

Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority

Six years after Mohegan Sun planted its flag in Palmer with the idea of building a western Massachusetts resort casino, the Connecticut-based company is leaving the rural town and giving up control of a 152-acre site.

Mohegan Sun is terminating a 99-year lease on the former casino site -– a wooded hillside just off the MassPike — and giving up pursuit of a non-casino development there.  Town officials and the landowner, Northeast Reality, were notified Monday.

Voters in Revere have approved a billion-dollar resort casino proposal, moving forward Mohegan Sun's plan that will compete with Wynn Resorts for the sole eastern Massachusetts resort casino license.

Mitchell Etess, CEO of Mohegan Sun Tribal Gaming Authority, says he's hopeful of convincing state gambling regulators to award Mohegan Sun the license.

Etess says Mohegan Sun will win the license because its application is unconditional. He says they're "ready to go."
