Mohegan Sun is Tops Third Year Running. It’s official. In fact, two significant awards were announced. They include USA Today’s 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards and Casino Player Magazine’s Best of Gaming 2020.
Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment (MGE) is the operator of Mohegan Sun in Connecticut and multiple properties throughout the United States and internationally.
But Wait, There’s More…..
In addition, MGE received the Forbes’ America’s Best-In-State Employers award. According to Forbes, 80,000 U.S. employees took an independent survey. Moreover, those employees came from companies employing at least 500 people. In fact, these surveys provided a representative sample of the U.S. workforce.
Other notable recognition includes:

At first, the experts below partnered with 10Best editors to pick the initial nominees.
- STEVE BOURIE – the author of the American Casino Guide.
- G. DOUGLAS DREISBACH – the publisher of Southern & Midwest Gaming and Destinations
- LISA ROBERTSON-DZIEDZIC – the Publisher of Casino Player magazine and Strictly Slots magazine.
Next, readers voted on their favorite choices in each category. This took a span of four weeks. Finally, the top 10 winners were determined by popular vote.
I am not a fan of the popular vote. I don’t completely believe the results of “popular vote” shows, sports recognition, and award programs. Consequently, NETG believes the industry and media should be voting for these accolades. However, bias and prejudice would certainly skew the voting as much as a popular vote would. So, “c’est la vie.”
“To be voted ‘Best Casino Hotel’ for the third consecutive year is truly an honor. We pride ourselves on providing guests with the highest quality of service. As a result, we provide exciting amenities and experiences that can’t be found anywhere else.said Jeffrey Hamilton, President and General Manager
