Mohegan Sun Pocono Approved For Sports Betting
Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board approved Mohegan Sun Pocono’s petition to offer sports betting and modify its floor plan at a hearing Wednesday in Harrisburg.
The approval followed the Plains Twp. casino filing a petition with the board in March seeking approval to offer all types of sports betting permitted by state law.
Mohegan Sun Pocono President and General Manager Tony Carlucci told the board Wednesday about plans to add a sportsbook near the casino’s main entrance in a former electronics store next to Molly O’Shea’s Irish Pub.
“We’re also going to have a simulcast and the ability to wager on the simulcast,” Carlucci said. “We’re also looking at putting at one in the Irish Pub location because we want to make it an atmosphere where people can eat and enjoy the games.”
