Connecticut Gambling News Brief

Poker returns to Mohegan Sun

Patriot-Ledger,  Tuesday, September 2, 2008 at 10:41:57 AM

Uncasville, Connecticut--Before Bill Burton could write a book about playing Texas Hold 'Em, the New Britain, Conn., resident went to Mohegan Sun's poker room.

It was 2000 and poker's popularity had yet to explode.

Then, about five years ago, it was all over. The Connecticut casino had shut its 54-table room on the brink of a boom that would bring the game onto the nation's television screens, Web sites and bookshelves.

At the time, Mitchell Etess, then the casino's executive vice president of marketing, said Mohegan Sun operators felt "the poker market isn't growing" and that the casino could see a bigger profit by converting the poker area into slot machines. the source
