There are many rumors swirling about an elevated tribal presence in Las Vegas in the meanwhile. We all know, as a result of we’re the one who’s been swirling them.
From casino purchases to different high-profile investments (give it a few weeks and we’ll be sharing extra big tribe-related scoop), it’s clear sovereign tribal nations have their eye on Las Vegas in a giant means.
The primary massive transfer by a tribe within the Las Vegas market appears to be a partnership between Onerous Rock Las Vegas, which is transitioning into Virgin Resort Las Vegas, and Mohegan Gaming & Leisure.
We’re advised reliably the Mohegan tribe might be managing the casino at Virgin Resort Las Vegas (technically, Virgin Resorts Las Vegas, however there’s just one deliberate in the meanwhile, so we’re maintaining it singular).
No official announcement has been made about this partnership, however when has that ever stopped us from spilling some tea?
As this information hasn’t been made public but, there’s no concrete timeline. We do know Onerous Rock will shut after the Tremendous Bowl (about April 1, 2020) for about 4 months (by July 2020) because the resort completes its changeover to Virgin Resort. We belief Mohegan Gaming and Leisure might be in place managing Virgin’s casino operations by that point (August 2020).
This can be a big partnership each for the Mohegan tribe and the house owners of Onerous Rock resort, JC Hospitality and Richard Branson’s Virgin Resorts.
This provides the tribe a foothold in Vegas, and offers Virgin Resort a complete new pool of potential clients who’ve performed on the widespread Mohegan Solar resort in Connecticut. Mohegan Gaming & Leisure manages Mohegan Solar. Learn extra.
