The megalithic Connecticut casino resort, Mohegan Sun, has announced they will be celebrating the Chinese New Year on Sunday, February 25, 2007. The special event will celebrate the Chinese culture in full swing, offering live musical entertainment by Lee-Hom Wang, as well as traditional Lion Dances and a smorgasbord of Chinese cuisine. Being one of the largest celebrations in the world, a Chinese New Year celebration at Mohegan Sun Resort is certain to be an amazing night of entertainment.
A press release announcing the celebration is circulating online, and it reports that tickets can be purchased through a third party . The , however, is very disorganized and it is recommended that parties interested in purchasing tickets go through International Entertainment, which can be reached in New York at 718-888-3113. Ticket prices start at $58 and go up to $138.
The Mohegan Sun Resort apparently has recognized the ever increasing demand of Asian gamblers and is taking several steps to better cater to the Asian gambling community. Besides celebrating the Chinese New Year, the Mohegan tribe is developing some more permanent fixtures, including an expansion of Asian casino game offerings in the Casino of the Earth, which is scheduled for completion this summer.
As part of the $740 million Project Horizon, there will be 4,000 square foot “Hong Kong” street food outlet and a 12,000 square foot casino gambling floor offering nearly fifty table games and 160 slot machines. All of this is in addition to the 64,000 square foot Casino of the Wind which will be adorned with many sacred and natural elements symbolic to the Mohegan tribe.
Playtech to Develop & License Shuffle Master Online Casino Games
International online casino and gaming software developer, Playtech, has announced another major deal – this time with recognizable brick n’ mortar casino supplier and games developer, Shuffle Master. In conjunction with Guardian Gaming, who owns exclusive rights to license certain Shuffle Master games to be played online out of the U.S., Playtech has intellectual property rights to sub-license a host of Shuffle Master games to its online casino licencees.
The agreement with Guardian Gaming will make Playtech the exclusive supplier of gaming software on the Shuffle Master online casino , which incidentally, is also operated by Guardian Gaming. Hallmark games to be developed by Playtech include the wildly popular Three Card Poker, Pai Gow, Ultimate Texas Hold’em, Let it Ride, Casino War and Dragon Bonus.
The deal is another recent first for Playtech, who has made tremendous advancements in the international online gambling industry following the U.S. crackdown. Playtech is now the only online casino software developer with rights to turn Shuffle Master’s popular games into virtual counterparts.
Shuffle Master certainly did its homework on who it wanted to develop its gaming portfolio. Playtech has been a pioneer in the industry since its early beginnings in the nineties, and now offers one of the most graphically advanced and secure online gaming software platforms in the industry.
