Mohegan-owned Resorts Casino will back the websites

The Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority (MTGA) has said that it wants to reach out to both serious gamblers and social gamers after announcing plans for real-money and social casino websites in New Jersey.

The MTGA is to launch the US state’s 17th online gaming site through its Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, while also announcing plans for a free-play social casino platform called Play4Fun Network.

MoheganSunCasino.com is the second site to make use of Resorts’ online gaming permit, with the hotel’s self-branded site launching in February and registering gross gaming win of $1.1m through to the end of June.

“The MTGA is thrilled to launch what we believe has raised the bar in online gaming and stays true to our commitment to luxury, leisure and best-in-class practices,” MTGA president Bobby Soper said.  “Our goal is for MoheganSunCasino.com to become the premier online destination for both serious gamers and those who simply want to relax and have fun.

“With the launch of MoheganSunCasino.com and the Play4Fun Network, the MTGA proves to be a leading force within the online gaming space.”

The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (NJDGE) revealed that online gaming revenue in June amounted to $11.7m (€10.6m), which was up 22.8 per cent on 2014. However, the figure represented a month-on-month drop when compared to the $12.5m achieved in May.

The MTGA operates a number of land-based casinos such as the Mohegan Sun in Connecticut, and will reveal its ambitious plans for South Korea on TotallyGaming.com next week.
