Celebrating 25 Years of Foxwoods Resort Casino

by Kelly Langevin

Interested in winning some money or seeing live performances? If so, Foxwoods Resort Casino is celebrating 25 years of pride and success, with special events to look forward to.  Located in Mashantucket, Connecticut, what started off as a small bingo hall in 1986, soon gained popularity and became the country’s first Indian Gaming Casino.

In 1992, Foxwoods expanded into a full casino and resort, opening its doors for a new chapter. Now, 25 years later, Foxwoods has become recognized as one of the best entertainment casinos in the country.

With such great success, Foxwoods is excited to celebrate and give back with great performances and winning opportunities for its guests.

“Our guests have been with us since we opened the doors 25 years ago and this is our opportunity to show our appreciation,”  Foxwoods Resort Casino President and CEO Felix Rappaport said in a statement.

“We’re excited to commemorate a quarter century as the premier resort destination in the Northeast by thanking our guests with a stellar entertainment lineup and unbeatable winning experiences all week long, with much more to come throughout the year!”

The celebration began back in February with free concerts including Kesha and Motown’s Smokey Robinson. There are still plenty of exciting upcoming shows to see performers, such as Mariah Carey, ventriloquist Terry Fator, Psychic Medium Matt Fraser and comedian Tracy Morgan.  No matter what type of entertainment you’re into, Foxwoods Resort Casino has it all.

Looking to have some fun in the casino or bingo hall? Foxwoods 25th Anniversary Novelty Games Championship introduces a new game each week including crazy four poker, Caribbean stud poker, criss cross and many more. People can play every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday now through Oct. 20.

The grand finale will be held on Oct. 28.  The winner must have the highest score each week to qualify for the Grand Finale where they could win $100,000.  People can qualify to earn one point by playing slots, table games, poker, keno or bingo to enter.

Daily prizes are given out as well, first place being $250.  Additionally, Foxwoods has Oktober Fest Bingo, with a 1,000,000-guaranteed jackpot coverall on Saturday, Oct. 21.

If you’d like to stay over and enjoy Foxwoods Resort Casino a little bit longer, the Fintastic Package offers a deluxe room at Grand Pequot, Great Cedar or the Fox Tower. It comes with two non-expiring admission to the Mystic Aquarium and a breakfast buffet for two at Veranda Café.

And we’re only going to continue to grow — the future of the Foxwoods brand lies in our ability to continue elevating the property’s overall offering as a premier resort destination and consistently exceeding our guests’ expectations,” Paul LaRocca, Foxwood’s vice president of brand marketing said in a statement.
