New Property Enhancements At Mohegan Sun Pocono

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

WILKES-BARRE, PA (March 30, 2017) – Since the opening of Mohegan Sun Pocono in 2006, Mohegan Sun Pocono has grown into one of the biggest gaming and entertainment attractions in the region. This spring, MSP will be keeping the momentum going with new enhancements to the property including a redesign of the gaming floor, a remodel to Timbers Buffet and the addition of over 250 new slot machines and table games – such as the popular Fusion Hybrid games.

Mohegan Sun Pocono is currently home to a world-class gaming space including 91 live table games, 2,300 slot machines and electronic table games, retail shops, restaurant and bars and the best live entertainment inside the Keystone Grand Ballroom and Wise Crackers Comedy. The new gaming floor design will provide guests with comfort and the convenience of easily navigating throughout the casino – slot banks are smaller with sleeker bases, aisles are wider and card readers as well as iView software have been upgraded. Plus, new carpet and Ultra-comfortable seats that allow free movement have been installed.

Blooming with new slot machines and table games, the beautiful gaming floor at Mohegan Sun Pocono most recently features the latest technology of Fusion Hybrid games. Guests may wager electronically on four different roulette wheels simultaneously, all at a $2.00 minimum bet. Each of the four roulette wheels are manned by an actual dealer who spins the ball. In the near future, the property will be adding $5.00 Minimum Bet Blackjack to the Electronic Table Game offerings. You can find these new games next to Timbers Buffet, as well as in the non-smoking Table Games section. Additionally, there are currently 100 new slot machines – bringing a total of 250 new slot machines by the end of the year.

Making improvements to Timbers Buffet, the experience and offerings will be upgraded and modernized for guests. There will be expanded Asian and Mexican stations, new pizza station offerings, additional brunch selections and an enhanced weekend night menu. The improved experience is rounded out with a renovated entrance, updated dessert station, a new carving station and increased heating elements for quality food – keeping buffet selections warmer longer.
