An evening out at Mohegan Sun: Betting on recovery

For the first Tribal Gaming series keynote, ICE 365 enjoys an evening out at the Mohegan Sun and hears exclusive insights from one of the best-known Native American-owned businesses in the market.


Connecticut’s Mohegan Sun is one of the most impressive casino properties in the US, while Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment is one of the most progressive and forward-looking tribal operators in the market.

In this video, its president and general manager Jeff Hamilton, and vice president of expo and convention sales John Washko, discuss its post-Covid recovery. The pair plot out the roadmap for amenities to reopen and talk about plans for new launches, such as a branch of Tao in the property.

And in the wake of agreements on compact amendments being reached with the state of Connecticut, Hamilton and Washko explain the plans for sports betting. The property already works closely with sports teams, allowing events to be held and broadcast on-property, and with experience of legal wagering, they reveal how the operator plans to ensure a successful roll out in the state.
