Mohegan Sun manages the bricks-and-mortar casino at Resorts in Atlantic City.
The site is essentially a clone of the current Resorts online casino. Like Resorts’ online operation, MoheganSunCasino.com is powered by NYX Gaming. NYX also provides platform services to Caesars and is set to play a similar role for Golden Nugget by year’s end.
Poker will not be on offer
Mohegan Sun will not operate online poker. PokerStars is expected to spread online poker under the Resorts interactive gaming license in New Jersey later this year.
Mohegan Sun already operates a social casino site. It offers free play and chips for purchase. Players cannot win cash from the online casino games.
The social play site spreads slot titles found in bricks-and-mortar casinos across the country. It also offers several video poker games. While the games are licensed by a variety of manufacturers, the platform is powered by Scientific Games.
“Our goal is for MoheganSunCasino.com to become the premier online destination for both serious gamers and those who simply want to relax and have fun. We look forward to the site going live and bringing players in New Jersey the very latest that online gaming has to offer,” said Bobby Soper, president of MTGA, via a press release.
“MoheganSunCasino.com will be the latest example of our commitment to partnering with the world’s most trusted and respected brands to deliver the best gaming experience possible to our players,” remarked Resorts owner Morris Bailey.
A previous version of this story inaccurately identified Sportech as a current partner of NYX Gaming in New Jersey. The story has been updated to remove that reference.
