by Categorized: Connecticut Tagged: , , Date:

Mohegan Sun announced an agreement with Las Vegas-based Bally Technologies¬†Wednesday to provide customers with Bally’s iGaming platform that provides online poker without users having to wager money.

After a six-month review process the casino determined Bally was the best vendor and technology available for what they hope to accomplish.

“We’re thrilled to continue our successful partnership with Bally Technologies,” Mitchell Etess, the CEO from the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority. ¬†“Our goal is always to provide our guests with the best gaming and entertainment offerings and we believe iGaming is the next step in fulfilling the demand for regulated online play when customers aren’t able to be on property.”

iGaming is also designed for mobile integration and other forms of online gaming as Connecticut regulations allow, including table games, video slots and sports betting.

The service will be available in early 2013 at mohegansun.com.
