Mohegan Sun Online Poker Room Launches with Special Promotions

It looks as if a number of companies have decided that the writing is on the wall and online poker will soon be legalized in the United States. One of the companies banking on regulated online poker (either at the state or federal level) is Mohegan Sun. Mohegan Sun has recently launched a free-play online poker site that uses the OnGame Poker Network’s software and has the look and feel of a real-money online poker room.

I was able to take the site on a test-drive before the official launch, and was pretty impressed with every facet of the project; from the look and speed of the software, to the games and formats available. Now it looks like the site is readying for a broader launch, as Mohegan Sun Poker sent out an E-Mail describing three promotions they are running. Here is a look at the promotions currently available on MoheganSunPoker.com:

3 Steps to Glory

Mohegan Sun Poker presents to you the most exciting free play promotion you have ever seen! The MSP Three Steps to Glory will take you for free to the Mohegan Sun Live tournaments series. More details

This promotion is a series of Step tournaments that you can enter with play money chips. The final step awards a pretty impressive $75 ticket that can be used for any live event at Mohegan Sun.

Weekend Poker Series

Welcome to the star event of Mohegan Sun Poker. The Weekend Poker Series will send you and a person of your choice to spend an incredible weekend at Mohegan Sun properties. More details

This promotion awards the winner an “Experience Package”, basically a two-night weekend getaway to Mohegan Sun.

VIP Club

Last but not least, you will be rewarded for your loyalty to Mohegan Sun Poker. Take full advantage of the prizes of our MSP Loyalty Program (coming soon). More details

The details of the online VIP Cub have not been completely straightened out at this point, but my assumption is that it will somehow tie into the regular Mohegan Sun VIP Club.

The most important aspect of MoheganSunPoker.com is that the site is completely free to play on; the site does not require a subscription and has no sign-up fees of any kind. Basically, all of these freerolls are available to anyone with an Internet connection, and the site can be wither downloaded or played in a Flash browser.

All of this appears to indicate that Mohegan Sun is building up to a real-money online poker launch as soon as online poker is legalized in the US, at the state level (Connecticut), or possibly across tribal lands and casinos, which would create their own inter-casino player-pool.

Mohegan Sun Readies Online Poker Room for Launch

This weekend I was invited to play in an exclusive tournament at the MoheganSun.com poker room which is preparing for a full launch in March of 2013. There is no word yet on potential online poker legislation in Connecticut, but with a solid online poker room already in place my guess is Mohegan Sun is preparing for the inevitable, and plans to be at the forefront of Connecticut poker when it does launch.

According to the E-Mail I received, the tournament was by invite only (the site still needs a pass word to even log into) and Mohegan Sun was giving away a stay at the hotel for the winner, while the second and third place finishers would receive $75 on their Mohegan Sun rewards cards. It appears that even though the site will not be a real-money online poker room, they will award a number of prizes through tournaments at the site.

The site is launching as a play-money online poker room utilizing software from the OnGame Network, which has a familiar look and feel that seasoned online poker players will appreciate. The plans for the MoheganSun.com online poker room were first announced back in the fall of 2012, and the site is now ready for its full launch, with play money games already running at the site.

Unfortunately I was unable to participate in the tournament, but before the tournament on Saturday night I took the MoheganSun.com play-money tables for a test drive and was impressed with the amount of traffic the site already has, as well as the level of play for a play-money site. For a comparison, I tried the play-money tables at the SouthPointPoker.com online poker room a few months back (South Point is in the running to be the first legal online poker room in the US) and was dismayed by the product they had put out. Granted, it was only the play-money games, but the software was sub-par and there were numerous glitches. MoheganSun.com on the other hand ran flawlessly during my time at the tables, and the games were fast-paced with zero technical issues.

The online poker room will be a terrific compliment to the brick & mortar Mohegan Sun Poker Room, which currently boats 42 tables in its own private section at the back of the main casino. While not as large as the nearby Foxwoods I prefer the Mohegan Sun’s poker room personally due to its location, lighting, and atmosphere in general –the only drawback is that compared to Foxwoods Mohegan Sun offers fairly low-limit games.

Mohegan Sun Deepstacks Begins Next Week

With their chief rival in Connecticut, Foxwoods, no longer hosting a World Poker Tour event, Mohegan Sun is looking to capitalize on this void and set themselves up as a serious player in the Northeast market by hosting their own major tournament series. Mohegan Sun first attempted this in 2010 and 2011 with the short-lived North American Poker Tour hosted by PokerStars, and now Mohegan Sun will host a Deepstacks Poker Tour event beginning Friday, November 22, 2012.

The first tournament on the schedule will be a $400 No Limit Holdem tournament featuring a $125,000 guarantee. The tournament will feature two starting days to accommodate the huge field of players expected to participate, as well as utilizing Deepstacks University pros Mike Mizrachi and Mike Matusow as hosts for the tournament.

The tournament series will culminate on December 1st, 2012 with a $2,500 buy-in Main Event featuring a $500,000 guarantee. A number of well-known poker pros have already booked their reservations for the Main event, including Mike “The Mouth” Matusow, Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi, Will “The Thrill” Failla, Randal “RandALLin” Flowers, Matt Glantz, Chip Jett, Aaron Massey, Jason Lee, Vinny Pahuja, and David Baker, and you can expect that list to grow right up until the cards are dealt.

In all, the 32 scheduled tournaments for the Deepstacks Poker Tour stop at Mohegan Sun will feature over $1,000,000 in guaranteed money, and should be one of the biggest tournament series on the east Coast this year.

Here is a look at the press release from Mohegan Sun including a link to the full schedule and structure of each event:

Next Friday will mark the start of the DeepStacks Poker Tour at Mohegan Sun. A $400 No Limit Hold’Em Tournament gets the action started at 11:00am hosted by Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi. This tournament is a $125,000 guarantee. From there, multiple tournaments follow, all the way up to the main event with the DeepStacks Poker Tour Mohegan Sun National Championship starting on December 1st. $500,000 makes up this main event prize pool and plenty of big names will be on-hand for this huge tournament. The full schedule of the series of tournaments, which combined will total $1,000,000 guaranteed, can be viewed here: http://mohegansun.com/img/active/pdf/DeepStacks-schedule.pdf

All the tournament action takes place inside Mohegan Sun’s Convention Center and the final table will be televised regionally with announcer Joe Stapleton and analyst Tristan “Cre8ive” Wade.

The Mohegan Sun Poconos location also announced their own Deepstacks Poker Tour tournament series this week, scheduled to take place in April of 2013, pending approval from Pennsylvania regulators.
