US – Mohegan Gaming changes name of Wilkes-Barre casino to Mohegan PennsylvaniaBy Phil - 25 October 2022
Mohegan, the developer and manager of high-profile entertainment resorts in the U.S. and beyond, is excited to announce that the first destination to bring gaming to Pennsylvania in 2006, will now be known as Mohegan Pennsylvania.
“We recently refreshed our corporate name, going from Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment to Mohegan,” said Ray Pineault, CEO of Mohegan. “Many of our partners, stakeholders and valued guests commonly refer to our brand as ‘Mohegan,’ so the new title is a strategic decision that truly encapsulates our capabilities and values. To also create synergy across the Mohegan portfolio, especially as we continue to grow in-line with the Mohegan Tribe’s vision, destinations like Mohegan Pennsylvania have also rolled out a rebrand.”
This refreshed name change follows the rollout of Project Starlight, which will soon include the completion of a $10m renovation to Mohegan Pennsylvania’s 237-room hotel. Other property enhancements as part of Project Starlight include the The Hive Taphouse, which is a new bar and live music venue home to a great entertainment calendar, various flat screens for the big game, 20+ beer options and a full dining menu. The Hive Taphouse is also home to Topgolf Swing Suites where guests can play virtual golf on well-known PGA courses and try their hand at other activities like the Quarterback Challenge. A new seasonal outdoor terrace bar (Embers Terrace), also opened this past summer and quickly became a hot spot for enjoying live music, relaxing by fire pits, playing lawn games, and sipping top-notch wine.
“There is so much to be excited about as we approach the new year and that excitement stems from our dedicated team and leadership,” said Anthony Carlucci, President & GM of Mohegan Pennsylvania. “With a new name, revamped hotel, new attractions and the continued unrivaled guest service that has exemplified our brand and all Mohegan properties, we’re thrilled about the next phase of Mohegan Pennsylvania.”
