Spur of the Moment Day Trip

We are going to Mohegan Sun for a day trip tomorrow. We've never been there and would like to some feedback on the casino, the smoking areas, machines and tables. We've been to Foxwoods numerous times and decided to try Mohegan, We were just in AC 2 weeks ago, so again it's "off to the outlets".

We LOVE Mohegan Sun (it was the place I won my first hand pay!)

As non-smokers the smoking there is an issue. Even playing in the non-smoking areas you still smell the smoke. The common areas are worse since you can smoke inside the hotel lobby. We've been spoiled in NJ/NY.

The shops and hotel are very nice. We've stayed there several times. We also love their arena for concerts, it's on the smaller side and every seat is great!

The property is wonderful, the layout is great! I never leave there without a stop at Wombi Rock's Leffingwells martini bar!! Climb (up the stairs) to the top, find a comfy seat, look at the ceiling as it changes from day to night and order an anti-freeze martini! YUM! It's the Best!

Table games: $5 tables can be found for roulette and craps earlier in the day. Slots: great selection and they have a terrific Slotto machine. You sit around like the WOF and we had great paybacks there ($1 machine).

Hope you have a great time and look forward to a TR when you return!!

I to love Mogehan sun, 2hr drive, for me. Restaurants are great, Jasper White summer shack,

Michael Jorden steak house, Fidalea's, Uncas American Grill, I could go on and on, Nightlife is very busy alot of clubs, also they have Bars (6) all around the casion floors, that you can play slots at that Bars and drink free :) I Don't smoke and the smoke doesnt bother me. Have a great time.

You're in my back yard-20 mins from my house. If I could take the day off, I'd meet you, but alas...

There are 2 non-smoking areas in Mohegan-one called the Hall of Lost Tribes in the Casino of the earth. The other is just a designated area in the Casino of the Sky. Each casino is a big circle-connected by the shops, hotel and restaurant in the middle. I like the gaming in Casino of the Earth better. The video poker machines are banked near the Wolf's Den lounge, toward the center of the casino.

I would recommend Michael Jordans (in the bar only-the restuarant is too stuffy and expensive) you can get an excellent meal in the bar & Summer Shack is good too. If you want a food court, hit Geno's Fast Break in the Casino of the Sky-the other food court is mediocre. Have a great time and let us know how you make out!
