While this casino thing is fairly new in the Pilgrim State, Plainridge Park has gotten into a successful rhythm and rotation. Now, Encore raises the nightclub bar to compete with an already vibrant club scene in Boston.

  • Encore Boston Harbor Nightlife – Memoire – “unparalleled nightlife fantasy experience with top-tier DJ talent and a sophisticated environment.”
  • MGM Springfield – Commonwealth Bar & Lounge
  • Plainridge Park Casino – the Revolution Lounge offers entertainment on the weekends. The Loft presents a few comedic and musical performances throughout each month.

Both tribal casinos tweak their clubs and lounges.  For example, Mohegan Sun’s closed Myst AND the Casino of the Winds. Consequently, they added nouvelleShrine at Foxwoods is the most famous club in New England since it opened when MGM partnered with Foxwoods.  And where can you see name entertainment for free like The Wolf Den.  The answer is – nowhere.

Although the Lighthouse Lounge has been under the radar for years, it offers excellent and similar entertainment to Mohegan’s Wolf Den – minus the headliners.

Great August Promotions in New England’s Casinos

We’re baaaa-ack!  It’s always great to return from vacation to find Great August Promotions in New England’s Casinos still. There’s nothing like a trip to Las Vegas to cleanse the New England casino pallet.  In truth, we also went to support our CT Sun – our WNBA basketball team who’s home is Mohegan Sun Arena.  Although the Sun lost, it was a great game played at the Mandalay Bay Event Center.

The best part about the women who play on this team is how personable they are. Bert & I were able to meet nine different players in the casino, being very careful not to appear as stalkers.  In addition, a few really showed us some love by spending a few minutes chatting – JJ, Courtney, Jasmine and company, thank you for making our Las Vegas Vacation the best ever.

WNBA Connecticut Sun at Mohegan Sun

If you haven’t attended a game yet, then you have no idea how exciting it is. In addition, they have been one of the top two teams in record and power rankings in the WNBA ALL SEASON. Check out the events posted below to plan the next game.  Time is running. The regular season ends in two weeks!  CT Sun Schedule

Back to Great Promotions in New England’s Casinos for August – Let NETG show you what’s left in promos this month. In addition, you will find the remnants of scheduled events and concerts.  Don’t forget the great Comedy offerings in our New England Casinos as well as Thrill Rides at Foxwoods.

Charitable Gaming in New Hampshire and Vermont

Charitable Gaming in New England varies by state. Here is a brief report on Charitable Gaming in New Hampshire and Vermont. Charity gambling is a “form of incentivized giving.” The intentions are honorable. Simply said, it’s a chance for a charity group to oversee gambling activities, rather than a municipality or private casino. Many states offer usual casino games with the proceeds used to further its charity’s financial duties.

New Hampshire

Rockingham Poker Room, New Hampshire

Charitable gaming in New Hampshire includes poker, bingo, Lucky 7, raffles, games of chance and card rooms. The only form of legal electronic bingo gaming is handheld electronic bingo cards. Bingo, originally “beano,” has been legal in New Hampshire since 1949. In addition, New Hampshire approved games of chance in 1977. According to Casino City,   “In 2014, the governor signed a bill into law that created more oversight for the charitable gaming industry, which was estimated to produce $75 million in bets annually. The law requires the Attorney General’s office to conduct background checks on operators and limits fees operators can charge charities. At least 35% of charitable gaming profits must go to charities, under the law. In July 2018, lawmakers increased the maximum bet allowed at charitable casinos from $4 to $10.”

Vermont

The Green Mountain state brings thoughts of maple syrup, dairy cows and Ben & Jerry’s – not gambling.  Charitable Gaming in New Hampshire and Vermont ignores gambling around them. While surrounded by states and Canada that offer commercial and tribal gambling, Vermont has stayed away. The Vermont lottery is the main form of betting inside state lines. Charitable gambling is the only legal poker game in the state. Unfortunately, strict conditions exist for poker. To be considered legal, charities must receive the entire proceeds of the game.

According to RealMoney.com, Vermont allows Charitable gambling under strict conditions. “If the entire proceeds of a game are going to a charity, it is probably legal. Vermont has a special exception or charity bingo games that allow the handing out of small prizes. Raffles are also explicitly allowed. Furthermore, Vermont explicitly allows Vegas Nights and Poker Nights.  The minimum age for all participants is 18, and the host of the event can’t be earning any profit in the role as host.”

So there you have it. We hear about Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island constantly – Maine?, not so much. Gambling is alive and well – even in those New England states considered “non-gaming.”
