More Stimulus from Mohegan Sun: Announcing $5 Blackjack Tables 24/7

With President’s Day just a week away, Abraham Lincoln is growing in popularity at Mohegan Sun as the Northeast’s premier entertainment destination will now offer $5.00 minimum bet blackjack 24/7. A new area in Casino of the Earth, located between Seasons Buffet and Sunrise Square, will be designated to the low-limit gaming.

“We are extremely excited to be opening this new low-limit gaming area for our guests,” said Mitchell Etess, President and Chief Executive Officer for Mohegan Sun. “Even in a downed economy, people are looking for ways to enjoy themselves and offering a lower-limit bet helps to do that. It removes the intimidation factor and lets people who might be interested in the game actually have the opportunity to give it a try as most people just starting out are not comfortable placing a high bet.”

From a novice just looking to have a good time to the more advanced player, Mohegan Sun has something for everyone with over 300 table games in a variety of styles and betting dominations.

Mohegan Sun, owned by the Mohegan Tribe, is one of the largest, most distinctive and spectacular entertainment, gaming, shopping and meeting destinations in the United States.  Situated on 240 acres along the Thames River in scenic southeastern Connecticut, Mohegan Sun is within easy access of New York, Boston, Hartford and Providence and located 15 minutes from the museums, antique shops and waterfront of Mystic Country.  More information is available by calling 1.888.226.7711 or visiting mohegansun.com.
