Most known for their resort in Uncasville, Connecticut, Mohegan Sun got their start in the online casino space in New Jersey on July 2015.
While they may not have had the name recognition in the Garden State when they first broke in, Mohegan Sun is a big name resort in the northeast region, being home to popular entertainment acts such as the heavy metal band Lamb of God, comedian Chris D’Elia, NCAA basketball games and popular acts such as Billy Joel.
They’ve been licensed and regulated by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement since they broke into the scene and come equipped with plenty of live dealer options. We took some time to traverse their online live casino. Here are our findings.
|Decent welcome bonus||Not the most well-known brand|
|Enticing live dealer selection|
|Plenty of banking options|
Not having the most well-known brand is not necessarily a bad thing in the Atlantic City ecosystem. Of course, they are still relatively popular, but what this comes down to is competing with the numerous heavyweights and what they have to offer. Nonetheless, they still have an excellent product to showcase.
Mohegan Sun offers a lucrative welcome bonus in the form of a 100 percent match up to $1,000 on your first deposit.
In order to access the bonus funds you get from this welcome offer, you must complete a 30x playthrough on slots and 150x on table games, roulette and video poker. Meaning, if you deposit $100, you must wager $3,000 on the site to access that $100 if you do slots exclusively. While that may sound daunting, they do offer one of the largest figures to potentially have access to.
Mohegan Sun has one of the fastest, easiest registration processes we’ve ever reviewed. Broken down into two steps, on step one you must provide your email, password, your name, gender and date of birth.
On step two, you must provide your address, city, state, zip code, mobile number, and agree to their terms of service and say you’re 21 years old. This is all important as Mohegan Sun does have a geolocation software to ensure you’re in the state to be able to make wagers.
With their product being on desktop, iOS and Android, Mohegan Sun has checked all the boxes for potential customers. When customers do visit one of these platforms, they can expect to be greeted by an interface that, although simple, does the job exceedingly well. Everything is spaced out and proportional the right way, with icons for their games, promotions and loyalty program at the top of the screen with the login and signup buttons.
Down the left-hand side of the screen are the different game options that can filter through, with all of them in order of game type in the center of the screen. This is not cluttered at all and the same goes for the mobile applications, too.
On the mobile app you must login prior to access the online casino, but in the upper-left hand corner there is a drop down menu with everything you’d need, surrounded by a calming orange background. This is one of the better interfaces we’ve seen—it’s not overdone and not stale, but does the job correctly.
Partnered with NYX Gaming, Mohegan Sun offers 11 different live dealer games, hosted by welcome and friendly male and female dealers. The games include:
All of these games are available from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. daily, with the exception of Auto Roulette, which is available 24/7. It’s also worth mentioning the quality of the stream you get when accessing these games—pure high definition.
Mohegan Sun doesn’t necessarily provide the betting limits upfront for their dealer games, but with so many games and options to choose from, it’s common sense to assume this range would be far and wide, from blackjack to baccarat—they’re definitely not going to be the exact same across the board.
Through their VIP Program, there aren’t necessarily additional high stakes games, but players will get bonus rewards such as different promotional offerings.
Titled “Stellar Rewards”, Mohegan Sun offers five tiers of this program with over 20 reward options, tier pending of course. A full breakdown of those rewards can be found here. Here is how the system works:
According to their loyalty page, here is how points are obtained:
These points can also be redeemed for cash:
Under the “Getting Started” drop-down menu, players will find the Contact Us button. Here, you can get access to their help center, a phone number, email or live chat. Additionally, their live chat option can always be found in the bottom right-hand corner of every page you visit for easy access, which is a feature we love to see.
With the Responsible Gaming logo at the top of the screen, we found a plethora of information that Mohegan Sun offers, including hotlines, organizations to reach out to and, for in-house assistance they have deposit and session limits you may assign to yourself.
Also, the 1-800-GAMBLER hotline can be found scattered throughout the site, as well as at the bottom of the homepage, too.
The totally unsuspecting Mohegan Sun surprised us, honestly. When thinking of Mohegan Sun, I did not go into this review thinking about their online casino, but rather their resort in Connecticut. However, what I found was a simple, yet polished online casino that has everything you’d ever need, including the 13 live dealer options and five blackjack tables.
For me, this is a personal favorite that I highly recommend checking out — a truly wonderful product.
