NCASVILLE, Connecticut -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- With the second largest slot floor in the Unites States, Mohegan Sun recently completed one of the largest modifications to an existing gaming floor in the history of the casino industry. And this Memorial Day weekend, the Northeast’s premier gaming and entertainment destination will officially launch Mohegan Sun PowerPlay Bonusing – a collaboration with Bally Technologies, Inc. featuring their new iVIEW™ and iVIEW Display Manager™ (DM) with Elite Bonusing Suite™.
“As a leader in the gaming industry, we are continuously implementing the most innovative tools available to provide the best gaming experience for our guests.”
This new programming is installed on nearly 6,000 machines property-wide and provides a one-of-a-kind gaming environment with real-time, point-of-play rewards and promotions, all without interrupting a player’s existing gaming experience. Easy-to-play progressives, slot tournaments, virtual racing and wheel promotions provide more ways for guests to win instantly as they play their favorite slot machines, while at the same time having instant access to property information, entertainment, restaurants and retailers, as well as Player’s Club point balances.
Included in the new bonusing program is Mohegan Sun’s Virtual Racing Circuit. Beginning Memorial Day weekend, slot players casino-wide will have the opportunity to participate in a free, horse-racing bonusing event in which players can pick their favorite horse. If that horse wins, players will instantly get rewarded. A total of $750,000 will be rewarded to Mohegan Sun’s Player’s Club members over the course of the weekend.
“Not only is Mohegan Sun part of an elite group of casinos offering this technology, we are the largest worldwide and the only casino in the Northeast to offer this unique bonusing product to our guests,” said Jeff Hartmann, President and Chief Executive Officer for Mohegan Sun. “As a leader in the gaming industry, we are continuously implementing the most innovative tools available to provide the best gaming experience for our guests.”
From installation to operation, the conversion project spanned five months. Over 25,000 man hours went in to this conversion from the slot team alone and over 5 ½ miles of fiber-optic wire were run for the project, which is equivalent to around 44 city blocks or 11,000 steps.
