A growing trend is the number of “brick-and-mortar”casinos to offer online casinos from their websites. These games are for fun and not like true online gaming where you use real money and can possibly make real money like an actual casino. However, for the most part, internet gambling is illegal in the US, except a few states which allow internet poker within state borders. That and whether Daily Fantasy Sports is gambling is another topic for another date. (Yes, it’s gambling.)
Only three casinos in New England offer a social gaming site as well – Foxwoods, Mohegan Sun, and Hollywood Casino, Hotel & Raceway.
A previous post about social gaming sites covered the top “fun” casino sites at the time. It’s a tad dated, but if you’d like, go to myVegas, Jackpot Party, Double Down Casino, Caesars Casino & Aristocrat’s .
- Free sign-up, with daily bonus that accumulates in consecutive days.
- It features mostly Multimedia and Ainsworth slots. Two categories of slots – regular and VIP (which require more credits.). Slot tournaments are available.
- Other Games include Video Poker, Bingo, Blackjack, Roulette, EZ Baccarat, Poker with many Tournaments available.
- BUY CREDITS AND GET REWARDS – You can get Rewards Points every time you make a purchase. You’ll receive 10% back as points for every purchase you make online. For example: purchase our $199 package and you’ll instantly receive 900,000 Virtual Credits to play our exciting online games, plus 19.9 Rewards Points will be added to your Foxwoods Rewards Card.
Mohegan Sun & Hollywood Casino Bangor offer the same online casino, similar to WMS’s based Jackpot Party Casino. It offers only slots & video poker. You can buy credits as well as earn more unlocked slots with continued play. Unfortunately, there is no ability to tie in bought credits to you Mohegan Sun Player Account or your Marquee Rewards Account at Hollywood. They also both have mobile apps for play, as many of the available gambling apps.
By far, Foxwoods offers a better experience, more to play, and benefits that are connected to your Foxwoods rewards account. If you were to spend money to buy credits, Foxwoods would be your best value.
