“a usual casino..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Enough restaurants; and quite a few stores..gaming area for smoking blended right into non-smoking areas, so that made me(a non smoker) upset...seemed to have all the usual game tables and various slots. They are currently building a hotel on the premises, so there is alot of construction...

“poker room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

made a 2 day visit there this past weekend. very impressed. I've played at over 150 poker rooms across the country and this is in top 5% for sure. Dealers were very personable and more importantly good at what they do. kept games moving. was there on Sunday/Monday and limited 2-5 action at that time but good 1-2 ( some of which played like 2-5. floor was also quick to open table for just 2 players who wanted to play 5-10 NL. Like that responsiveness to player requests. Cocktail servers also had no problem letting elite status players buy drinks for others on their card for free. Didn't spend much time in rest of casino but looked very inviting with LOTS of dining options. Was running $3 hour comp promo for 2-5 players at the time.

“I don't understand what the other reviewers are complaining about”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

we had a great time at Mohegan Sun

we lost $ -- but, that is to be expected when you gamble

other reviewers said the slots were "tight" -- I have no way to assess that. My wife usually loses $ when she plays the slots -- nothing surprising here

the horses were a lot of fun (we lost $ there also -- again, not a big surprise)

the casino was very clean

there were a lot of nice shops and restaurant options (including Ruth Chris and Johnny Rockets)

there were separate non - smoking areas for the machines and the tables

the staff (despite what I had read elsewhere) was VERY nice -- everyone we encountered was pleasant and polite and courteous

we will definitely return if we are in the area

no complaints (outside of losing $ -- but, seriously, it's gambling)

“Clean,not too smoky”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

We liked the short distance the casino was to our hotel. Also we went late at night so there weren't as many people.Even though smoking was allowed we were not bothered by the smoke

“Never a disappointment!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Always have a great time at the casino even though I don't gamble. Love Breaker's bar and the weekend bands! Everything is well taken care of and clean, including the bathrooms. Free valet parking is a plus considering it is typically crowded and you have to walk a fair distance when you self park.
