In January 1993 an agreement was made between the state's Governor and the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe who operate the Foxwoods Resort Casino, which gave the tribe the exclusive right in Connecticut to operate slot machines on their Ledyard reservation in return for a yearly fee.
Foxwoods was New Englandís first casino. When the casino first opened in February 1992, slot machines were not permitted. But following the 1993 agreement allowing them to operate slot machines it became the largest casino in the world and possibly the most profitable gambling operation in the USA.
The following year in early 1994 the Mohegan tribe too signed an agreement with the state of Connecticut that allows them to offer casino gambling at their reservation in Uncasville. This was done with permission by the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe. In return, the state lowered the Pequots yearly fee payment requirements. The same payment schedule also applies to the Mohegans who eventually opened their casino in 1996. The payment schedules are subject to cancellation, however, if the state legalizes any other form of casino gambling.
The games offered at Foxwoods are: blackjack, craps, roulette, baccarat, mini-baccarat, big six wheel/wheel of fortune, bingo, poker, pai gow poker, caribbean stud poker, let it ride, keno, pull tabs, red dog, casino war and chuck-a-luck. There is also a simulcast facility with pari-mutuel betting.
The games offered at Mohegan Sun are: blackjack, craps, roulette, baccarat, mini-baccarat, pai gow, wheel of fortune/big six wheel, bingo, poker, pai gow poker, caribbean stud poker, let it ride, Spanish 21, casino war, sic bo and keno. There is also a simulcast facility with pari-mutuel betting.
The minimum gambling age at both casinos is 18 for bingo and 21 for casino gambling. Both casinos are open 24 hours. For information on Connecticut call the Stateís Vacation Center at (800) 282-6863.
