Times-Leader,  Friday, January 29, 2010 at 1:39:46 AM

The casino Thursday said it will hire 500, and more than half of them will be in the table games department. More than a 1,000 people now work at the casino/racetrack.

"We're looking at probably 300 dealers," said chief executive Bobby Soper.

The games that include blackjack, poker, craps, roulette and baccarat are expected to be in place by the summer to complement the casino's slot machines, he said. The state legalized the games earlier this month as a way to generate much needed revenue and create jobs. the source

Hartford Courant,  Sunday, October 12, 2008 at 2:09:23 PM

Television stars got a chance to show off some of their other talents Saturday, from poker to fiddlin', as part of the Mohegan Sun's weekend gala for its new Casino of the Wind.

Tracy Morgan of "30 Rock" showcased his poker expertise with a straight flush on the one of his first hands, while James Denton of " Desperate Housewives" fame did his Tennessee roots proud with some standing-ovation-worthy guitar playing.

"I'm from Nashville, so pluckin' just comes naturally," said Denton, who, with the rest of The Band From TV, wowed the crowds at two shows with their singing and musical expertise.

Jessica Szohr and Matthew Settle from " Gossip Girl," married couple Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin -- who both did gigs on "Dancing With The Stars" -- pro wrestler and " Dancing With the Stars" alum Stacy Keibler, along with Connecticut native Becki Newton from " Ugly Betty," all juggled red-carpet and VIP duties Saturday with just hanging out with the regular folks. the source

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
