“We’re excited to work with FanDuel, one of the leading sports-tech entertainment companies in the U.S. to bring the brand’s innovative sports betting and iGaming solutions to Mohegan Sun Connecticut. Our partnership is a priority for Mohegan Digital, as we look to grow and enhance our casino, sportsbook and online operations in Connecticut – and beyond. We’re confident that FanDuel will deliver a best-in-class digital and in-person experience for our loyal guests,” said Ray Pineault, President & CEO of Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment.
Officials from FanDuel, which recently teamed up with Bally’s Atlantic City Hotel Casino, say that Mohegan Sun is one of the best casinos in the Northwest and that they are excited about signing the partnership.
