Mohegan Sun Pocono boasts 83,000 square feet of gaming floor. It includes 2,300 slot machines, more than 90 tables games, an 18-table poker room, and horse racing.
Due to a failure to act before the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board’s (PGCB) deadline, Mohegan missed the opportunity to purchase the discounted $10 million gaming suite to offer online slots, online tables games, and online poker.
Mohegan eventually applied for all three options, paying $4 million per license, $2 million more than the bundle price. Later on, it received a $4 million rebate when it withdrew the application for a PA online poker license.
Currently, Mohegan Sun Pocono only has licenses to offer online slots and tables games.
Mohegan Sun Pocono’s online casino platform
Mohegan Sun currently operates an online casino in New Jersey under Resorts Casino’s license. Its platform is developed by NYX, which was recently bought out by Scientific Games.
In New Jersey, Mohegan Sun boasts a massive game library and engaging promotions.
The PA online casino will be going a different route for Pennsylvania. The property partnered with Kindred, which is a European gaming company behind sites like Unibet.
Mohegan Sun Pocono’s online casino bonuses and promos
In New Jersey, Mohegan Sun offers a 100 percent, first-deposit match, worth up to $1,000.
It’s unclear what to expect from Mohegan’s Pennsylvania product, especially under a Kindred partnership.
More than likely there will be a no-deposit offering around $10-$30, along with a 100 percent match on first deposits.
This offering seems to be the industry standard. Pennsylvania could establish its standard to make up for the 54 percent slot-tax rate, but the market will be competitive to get new users.
Mohegan Sun Pocono’s online casino banking
As with all online gambling sites in the US, banking remains an issue. Over the years it has improved, but banks and credit cards remain wary of gaming transactions.
That said, there are plenty of payment options for players to deposit and withdraw. Expect to see:
- ACH (e-check)
- Cash at the Mohegan Sun Pocono Casino’s cage
- Mohegan Sun Pocono’s prepaid card
- Online bank transfers
- Visa and/or MasterCard credit/debit cards
- Wire transfers
Mohegan Sun Pocono’s online casino game offerings
With Kindred involved, we can expect the online casino to offer some of the best slot titles in the business. Some of Unibet’s most popular slots are:
- Divine Fortunes (progressive jackpot)
- The Goonies
- Mega Moolah (progressive jackpot)
- Who Wants to be a Millionaire
Blackjack is one of the most popular online table games due to interactive play and great odds for the players. While we can only speculate right now, Mohegan Sun Pocono should offer many blackjack games including classic, multi-hand, and other variants.
A partnership with Kindred could also bring live dealer games.
Roulette is another game we can expect a few variations of in the online offerings from Mohegan Sun Pocono. At the very least, we should see American- and European-style roulette games.
American roulette has both zero and double zero. European roulette only has zero, which essentially cuts the house edge in half. Most operators will offer at the very least these two versions of the game.
Kindred could also help bring in live dealer roulette as well.
We can expect to see a good variety of other games.
Live dealer games are another possibility, which the Kindred’s platform supports.
There’s a variety of other games you may see on Mohegan, including:
- Pai gow poker
Mohegan Sun Pocono’s online poker
Mohegan Sun’s parent company is partners with PokerStars in New Jersey. However, PokerStars is partnered with Mount Airy in Pennsylvania; Mohegan Sun does not have a license to operate poker.
Mohegan Sun Pocono’s online casino loyalty program
Not much is known about Mohegan Sun’s loyalty program in Pennsylvania.
In New Jersey, Mohegan Sun offers the nine-tiered rewards program named Elevate Rewards. This program allows players to earn points based on play to earn on property perks at Resorts Atlantic City or Mohegan Sun in Connecticut or Pennsylvania.
We will have to see if Mohegan continues this program or creates something new with its Pennsylvania online casino.
