Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

Cash Cubes and Prize Wheels add even more chances to win this summer

Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs is here to help you get over the midweek hump with Wild Wednesdays where exciting games offer guests a chance to put winning into their own hands throughout Hot Summer Fun!

In June and August, guests playing their favorite slot machines between 11:00am and 8:00pm have a shot at being one of two selected winners each hour to compete in Dueling Cash Cubes. The guest who grabs the most “cash” and “Free Slot Play” during 30 seconds in the cube will win $100.00. Both guests, however, walk away winners as they each keep whatever amount of cash and Free Slot Play they manage to grab while in the cube!

During Wild Wednesdays in July, five lucky guests playing their favorite slot machines from 11:00am to 8:00pm will be randomly chosen each hour for a chance to spin the Wild Wheel for Free Slot Play, cash and Hot Summer Fun prizes.  

Guests must be 21 years of age or older to participate in any of these tournaments and be a valid Player’s Club member. If you don’t have a Player’s Club card, it is easy and free to sign up. Visit mohegansunpocono.com/playing or a Player’s Club booth for more details.
