Foxwoods Brief Trip Report – Random Notes

The last two days I was able to visit Foxwoods Resort Casino for a few promotions, a little Video Poker at the Cedars Casino Play Bar, look around and have lunch.

Our first choice was to have breakfast at noon at Juniors in the Fox Tower. Well, we’re sad to report Juniors doesn’t serve breakfast all day anymore. No breakfast after 11:00am – bummer.

So we decided to check out buffet substitution for the Festival Buffet, which is closed until the Spring for a major renovation. The Buffet option is at the Veranda Cafe and is not bad. Matter of fact, it’s quite good. Delicious food, expanded offerings, or menu items, calmer ambiance compared to old Festival Buffet, music, and a decent price.

Breakfast is $15, lunch is $20, and supper is $24. Kids 12 & under have special prices. Whatever % you have off the Festival Buffet from your tier lever (for example, 15% with Gold level card) you get at this buffet. We recommend you try it out.

Fox casino has lots of new slots and new skill-base slots.

Rumors of 6:5 blackjack seem to be exaggerated. At least none seen in Pequot casino, from $15 up. Didn’t see anything under $15 and we will check the other casinos this week.

For a Saturday afternoon, it was busy and still great to see $5 Craps offered.

Play It First at the New Game Zone – Foxwoods has introducePlay It Firstan innovative gaming area that allows guests to experience brand new table games, including industry-first concepts. Located in the Grand Pequot Tower, Play It First features four unique games that rotate on a quarterly basis, including two that are new to the gaming industry. These new games include: Dragon Poker, Three Card Blitz, Double Draw Poker and Ultimate Texas Hold ’em. Most of these games have low limits.

Finally, the new Top Golf will be located on the casino floor in the Fox Casino. It looks like it will be huge, using the store area where the Mario Barth’s King Tattoo was and the store next to it.
