ohegan Sun Poker has made its return and will be open daily from 10:00am – 2:00am. With health & safety being the top priority, the Poker Room reopens at under one third of its total tables, will feature a max of 7 players at a table at once and will incorporate safety shields for players and dealers. Spectators, as well as food, will not be permitted in the Poker Room, and guests must sanitize hands with easily accessible hand sanitizer before touching cards.

The Mohegan Sun Poker Room temporarily closed down in mid-March 2020, along with Mohegan Sun as a whole, due to the pandemic. Mohegan Sun, after investing more than $1 million in health and safety protocols across property, reopened to the public on June 1st. The return of Poker at Mohegan Sun will not immediately feature promotions and tournaments, though updates will become available in the near future. Additional details and safety measures include:

Both guests and team members are required to wear protective masks in the Poker Room, as is required across all of Mohegan Sun.

  • Physical distancing will be instituted and monitored.
  • Polycarbonate dividers will be used on all active poker tables.
  • Cards will be removed and sanitized at regular intervals.
  • A player’s seat and section will be cleaned after they end their play.
  • Sanitizing dispensers will be located throughout the Mohegan Sun Poker Room.
  • The Mohegan Sun Poker Room is smoke-free, spacious and well ventilated.

The most regular cash game offering in the Mohegan Sun Poker Room will currently be limit and no limit Texas Hold ’Em, though other popular offerings include 7 Card Stud and Omaha, among others. The Poker Room may move to 10 open tables in the near future. 

Mohegan Sun works in tandem with The Mohegan Tribal Health Department, who operate on-site and whose health & safety guidance and leadership on all resort operations is paramount.
