Mohegan Sun adds more slots

5 September 2007

UNCASVILLE, Connecticut -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- The melodic spinning reels and jackpot cheers are going to get a whole lot louder at Mohegan Sun, as over 200 new slot machines have just been added to Casino of the Earth, including some of the latest technology the gaming world has to offer.

Located south of the Spring Gateway, the new area is home to some of the world's latest gaming technology including Bally Pong. As the first casino in the country to install these machines, which for the first time allow hand-eye coordination to affect payout, Mohegan Sun continues to prove itself as a leader in the industry.

As a trend-setter, Mohegan Sun also is now home to the first Atronics eMillions, WOF wide screen, dual screen multi-level wide area progressive games and new Spielo games, on the East Coast. Additionally, Mohegan Sun has also installed the first WMS transmissive reel games in the State of Connecticut.

While this new gaming space does incorporate a large number of new games, it is also home to the classics such as Triple Sevens, Monopoly, and Double Diamonds. Rounding out the room, complete with 230 games, is also a number of one cent and five cent video poker machines by Bally.

Under a current gaming compact with the State of Connecticut, Mohegan Sun gives the State 25-percent of the monthly slot revenue. After the completion of its Project Horizon expansion in 2010, Mohegan Sun will be home to approximately 7,600 slot machines.

Mohegan Sun is currently in the midst of Project Horizon - a $740 million expansion that calls for a new 1,000-room hotel, featuring 300 House of Blues-themed rooms and an exclusive members-only House of Blues Foundation Room. The expansion also includes 115,000 square feet of additional retail and restaurant space, and a new 64,000 square-foot "Casino of the Wind." In addition, Project Horizon has expanded Mohegan Sun's Asian gaming experience in Casino of the Earth with the opening of Sunrise Square this summer. Upon full completion in 2010, Project Horizon is expected to add more than 1.4 million square feet to Mohegan Sun's existing structure.
