2nd best connecticut casino
Terrible video poker, maybe the worst anywhere. The few that are not bad do not give any points. The poker room is not well run or well placed, if you can find it, you will see no variety in games mostly no-limit. All other games are terribad typically found in indian casinos with little or no competition. Hotel is nice and expensive.
Mohegan for poker was just fine
I spent a day playing live poker and a 9-5 DDB video poker I found right outside the poker room. I like this casino. I like the decor. It really develops Native American ideas and themes.
The buffet was just delicious. I especially liked the choices because I am eating more vegetables, fruit and fish and less carbs and meats. They had plenty of everything, but the choice in my foods were better than the average buffet, much better than Foxwoods, and things were labeled well. Gluten free was around. I don't focus on that, but I certainly liked that the strawberries were labeled "no added sugar" Those made a fine desert.
I also like the ambiance. At Foxwoods the music in the buffet is just too loud.
The poker room is much brighter and is on the main floor.
Access was easy from the Groton Inn and Suites just off I-95. Ten miles. I paid $45 plus tax using a Roomsaver coupon. I called ahead to see there were spots and I loved this place. $45 on a Friday was great. They had a sit down served breakfast with plenty of choices and good portions that was included in the price.
I have not been to Mohegan in a long while, but my points were still active.
best time ever..
my girlfriend and i prefer Mohegan Sun, to any other casino, except maybe Vegas. i play video poker,and always do well, i'll win most times, or break even....few times i lose , but i can play for hours, i mean 6 to 7 hours....i usually bet a buck a hand,and really enjoy it. the buffet is the best, and the food court has many options for eating. it's our Casino of choice. My girl also plays for hours, and has a great time.
Spent a week in CT, stayed @ Hampton Inn, in Groton, was a great trip.
Food is expensive, both at the hotel and the surrounding area, but for the money the buffet
in the casino is worth the price.
Gambling was for me super. I was dealt four aces with a kicker on a dollar poker machine,
and hit a royal on a quarter machine.
Slots were not as kind. Played a few hundred, and stayed even for about two hours, but
the high roller area machines, for me, were ice cold, and my few hundred was gone.
The casino is beautiful, compared to the warehouse feel at the Fox.
Staff very friendly, and I was given a comp for the buffet.
All in all I'll be back in March.
This place is sinking faster than a submarine with a screen door.
The comps are not what they used to be.
I think the bad economy has made these folks feel that your money is just not enough.
The staff is still nice and the hotel too.
The gaming leaves much to be desired.
No wonder they are having financial problems.
NO LONGER A GOOD PLACE TO GO.
Save your $$ and go to AC!
Using up my points and then not going back
Mohegan Sun has recently decided to become unfriendly to video poker players. While the pay schedules seemed to be improving, the players club has decided to not award points to people who play 9/6 jacks or better or 8/5 bonus poker. Once my points are used up at their restaurants, I will be playing at Foxwoods.
Mohegan Sun poker
I don’t really know this entire casino very well, because primarily I play live poker there, but I think that I have some interesting information to add to the reviews.
In Connecticut you have a choice of this place and Foxwoods. The poker room atmosphere is much better here. First, it is on the ground floor and bright and cheerful. There is no sense of playing in a basement here.
The dealers are organized and friendly. Getting a table change is generally very easy, so I have quit no limit tables with few players and joined 2-4 tables easily and with easy permission and no hassle from the brush.
Seats are comfortable. I find the entire casino more interesting and comfortable than Foxwoods. Foxwoods seems to me like a huge mall with poker in the dungeon. Mohegan seems like a bright and cheerfully decorated casino with poker just off the main floor.
They no longer offer 3-6 games. That used to be my favorite. They do have 4-8 as well as the 2-4 and no limit.
Left over from the days they had a 3-6 are $3 chips that can still be used in play. Rather an interesting collectors item as well.
Rooms are expensive. The poker rate after 6 hours of play is $99. The problem, of course, is that we can’t make a reservation ahead of time. I generally go to some place using room saver coupons, especially since I don’t need to pick up a current copy on the road, but can go on line and find them and print them. My favorite place to stay is a Microhotel just one mile away with a free shuttle during much of the evening hours. Even the cab rides are not that expensive from the casino to this motel, so a free ride over with the cab as backup if I stay into the morning, makes this a good place to stay. However, it is not cheap on weekends. Just to pay rack rate for a Mohegan Sun Room is just way above anything reasonable. Slot players get good deals. There are also daily bus that give great value with freeplay and free buffet.
I like the buffet. I have not had a great experience with other food places.
The original casino was worth seeing. It really did represent an Indian culture, built in a circle with entrances and even parking garages are named after nature and there is plenty of interesting art scattered about. The add ons have not been as true to those themes, but interesting also, exploring abstract art themes with glass and shape and color.
Poker Comps are $1 an hour for food, but if you play a long, long day, you might be able to go in to the lounge and have an absolutely free (different every day) meal on the Mohegan Sun. Just ask. 8-10 hours is suggested.
There are daily tournaments and Player’s Club points can be used to buy in to them.
Here, as in Foxwoods, I have managed to get in to see a show by standing outside the showroom and looking for players selling tickets.
Best of the best
Went there for a couple of hours in May. Every machine I played on paid something and I only play the penny slots. The casino is gorgeous and a good variety of games. I am going for a long weekend in July and after not staying there in over two years, the casino host comp us three free nights, two nights of free concerts and a $100 food voucher. You can't get that anywhere else. Outside of Vegas, this is my favorite casino to play at.
Luck was with me all three times!
I have been to MS three times this year and have had success all three times winning 400, 700, 450. All this on the slots and had a great time just walking around and seeing other people play. At one point I had told a couple there to play this machine that I was leaving because I had won 300 on it and they played and won more. But that was what the fun is all about. Sharing and learning about the different machines and where people have made the money. Best to talk to people there and they let you know where they made money. I do it all the time and that is why i am successful. I usually take 200 with me and play 20 at a time. What I make with that 20 goes back in my pocket till the end of the day. Then I take my tickets at the end of the day and cash out. It works for me. so I enjoy the day and get the hamburgers at Johnny Rockets. They were the best but pricey.
I tried my luck at the craps table as a beginner and since I was the only one there I had 4 coaches to help me place my bets. Made 200 there which I later used to play extra time on the gaming tables. I'm not a good player but it was fun!
Reason I score some low is because you cannot place an "I don't know" score or n/a since I don't stay there for the hotel or players club.
poor customer service
Seemed to be a good selection of slots, but the way they deal with excess change (any amount over an exact multiple of the denomination of the game you're playing) is different from any other casino i've been to.
When i went from a penny machine to a quarter machine, the machine spit out a 14 cent voucher (the amount over an even number of quarters). I didn't look at the voucher and tried to put it back in a couple of times. It kept spitting it out, so i walked away. i got about 50 feet from the machine and realized that it was for 14 cents and not the $20.89 i had on my original voucher.
I immediately went back to the machine and my money was gone. Someone had cashed it out. I immediately got a security guard, who said it happens all the time. I went to security (i know they have cameras and can tell exactly who took my money), but they were no help.
i'm not a big gambler, i go mostly for the fun...so that probably figured into it. When i returned home, i wrote to the management with all the details (voucher #, etc.) and got NO reply.
You'd think, in the interest of customer satisfaction, that they'd at least send me a voucher or something. NOTHING! i won't be back. (the ratings that i've given a "3" to are because i couldn't submit this form without rating everything....there should be an "n/a" choice)
Although I am not a high roller, I used to get wonderful offers/comps - even a great deal on a room Fri. night (I needed a break after a week at work at a high school).
However, the offers have tightened up and, alas, the Fri. night rooms are way beyond what I can afford, so my once or twice a month escapes are no more.
Nonetheless, I still prefer Mohegan over Foxwoods - I can play longer (more bang for the buck) before I hit the bottom of my allowance. Staff members are great and friendly. Next to Vegas, this is my favorite place to be.
Gotta love the Sun!
Why choose the Wolf over the Fox? Many reasons. Better food, better rooms, nice facility. Friendlier hosts.
Looser high-limit slots, especially Triple Dollar and Double-Triple Diamond. Some of the hotter machines were shipped out after the house caught up to them, but there is still good action to be had.
No poker until new place opens, no bingo. Lounges are free for Wolf player and higher, and offer better food than Foxwoods. One lounge is open 24/7 in the Baccarat Pit in the Casino of the Earth. After 10:30 pm it becomes dim sum and has a great noodle chef.
There is also a noticeable lack of arrogance, as opposed to the Fox. I play there, I stay there, I win there.
BEST GAMING FACILITY ON THE EAST COAST. A BIT STINGY ON COMPS AT TABLE GAMES BUT THEY REALLY TAKE GOOD CARE OF THEIR BIG PAYERS-SAGAMORE AND SACHEM RATED.
FROM GATED VIP PARKING TO FREE ROOMS 7 DAYS A WEEK. A COMP POINT IS WORTH $1.00 AND CAN BE SPENT ANYWHERE ON THE PROPERTY.
THEY WILL TAKE ANY AND ALL ACTION- HIGH STAKES ARE NOT A PROBLEM YET THEY DO A GREAT JOB WITH EVEN THE PENNY SLOT PLAYER.
Kind of dark inside. Comps are low. Rooms are nice, casino is also nice, but hard to get $5 games. 15mins 8miles away from Foxwoods. Slots payback poor. I like to have other casinos to choose from.
Waterfall inside nice to see across from store has fish tank windows. Stores are over priced. Has two buffets, one in back by the waterfall is better. Other nice food places. Closed their poker room and no bingo. Has racebook.
