Mohegan Sun Chooses Ongame For Their Online Poker Site
Friday, November 30th, 2012 at 1:14 am EST/EDT
Ongame poker network is the chosen network for the online version of the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut.
Many of the old offline brick and mortar casinos are moving very quickly to fill the void from the banning of online gambling in the USA through the Ill conceived ports act in 2006.
Online casinos such as Partygaming and 888 lost the majority of their players when the USA forced payment processors out of business and as the brick and mortar casinos use their branding and stature to enter online poker through websites it is clear the online company without a presence in USA will never recover.
Early 2013 is the hopeful date for the launch of mohegansuncasino.com and it is expected that they will be a dominant player in the online space quite quickly due to not having to worry about legalities like non USA casinos.
This move to use Ongame for the Mohegan Sun Online Poker site is a first by an East Coast operation and it seems to some like a core part of the strategy of the casino moving forward.
The Tribal Gaming Authority of Mohegan own and operate the Mohegan Sun casino and since it opened in 1996 the casino has become the second biggest casino in the USA, employing 10`000 local people mainly tribal to create a 2007 declared revenue of $1.62 Billion.
