ComiCONN and TerrifiCon – CosPlay Invades CT Casinos

As comic book movies have become of increasing importance to Hollywood — the big box office of “X-Men” in 2000 is generally considered the turning point — there’s been more and more movie and television involvement  with comic book superheroes, and the events that follow.  Connecticut casinos will be providing events for your inner Superhero, starting this weekend at Foxwoods Resort Casino.

Marvel Comics, or DC Comics? Which Superheroes do you prefer?  In case you don’t follow DC and/or Marvel comics, cartoons and movies (like me) you probably don’t know where to start. Here’s a quick review of which superheroes belong where:

DC: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Aquaman, Cyborg, Shazam, Martian Manhunter, Hawkman and Green Arrow.

Marvel: Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Spider-Man, Wolverine and Ant-Man, such teams as the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men and the Inhumans, with antagonists such as Doctor Doom, Red Skull, Green Goblin, Ultron, Doctor Octopus, Thanos, Magneto and Loki.

Altered Reality Entertainment presents ComiCONN at Foxwoods Resort Casino, June 30th & July 1, 2018.

Whatever floats your superhero boat, Foxwoods begins the fun with  ComiCONN 2018 in the Premier Ballroom, June 30th & July 1st.  Tickets range from $10 – $99 with the festivities starting at 10:00AM. (For your safety, there are some items that guests are prohibited from bringing inside of the Fox and Grand Theaters. Please click here for the full list.)

The event will include all the same aspects that fans have come to expect from a comic con — celebrity appearances from the big and small screen, industry-leading comic book artists, and the best vendors in the market with toys and collectibles, as well as the ever-popular cosplay competitions and events.

ComiCONN “A Show for the Fans by the Fans!” was created by Erik Yacko in 2009. ComiCONN’s name came from adding an extra “N” to the end of the word “comicon.”  ComiCONN began in  2010 as a one-day event.  In 2014, it expanded to a three-day event in Bridgeport. In 2016, Connecticut ComiCONN joined forces with Altered Reality Entertainment.

Brockton Casino Still Alive? – New England Weekly Casino News

WEEKLY NEWS

Saturdays will now be a look back at the week’s news at New England’s Casinos. Either in the form of NETG articles or the latest breaking news, we will be covering it on Saturdays. 

THIS WEEK:

Brockton Casino Still Alive?

MGM Springfield Gets “Last Call” Extension

It’s GAME ON at Mohegan Sun

Rhode Island Is First To Legalize Sports Betting in New England

East Windsor Approves MMCT Zoning Permit for Casino

a Tragedy at Foxwoods


Brockton Casino Still Alive?

The Massachusetts Gaming Commission received a letter on Wednesday from the Chicago-based Rush Street Gaming asking for another chance to bring a $677 million casino to Brockton. Rush Street and Mass Gaming and Entertainment are now seeking reconsideration for the project more than two years after it was rejected in a 4-1 vote by the state gaming commission in April 2016.

Proposed Brockton Casino

Proposed Brockton Casino that was denied the Region C license.

Rush Street and Mass Gaming began the letter by referring to a notice posted online in July 2016 by the state gaming commission, pledging to hold a public discussion “at a time deemed appropriate” about the short- and long-term interests of southeastern Massachusetts. The Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe originally planned to open a destination casino in Taunton in 2017, but construction was derailed by a federal lawsuit.

Meanwhile, there is increasing support for the Mashpee casino in Taunton. Read the following article for more details:   “Support grows for legislation for Mashpee tribe”

MGM Springfield Gets “Last Call” Extension

Paul Tuthill, from WAMC Northwest Public Readio reported “The Massachusetts Gaming Commission voted 4-1 Thursday to approve, with some conditions attached, an alcoholic beverage license for MGM Springfield that will allow drinks to be served on the casino floor until 4 a.m. – two hours later than the time all other bars in the state are required to close……but only if they are actively gaming would they be able to consume (alcohol) after that 2 a.m. time frame.”

MGM Springfield Casino Entrance

MGM Springfield Casino Entrance, Main Street to the left,

MGM Springfield Vice President & General Counsel Seth Stratton said the proposal before the gaming commission is to have extended hours for alcohol service only on the casino floor, saying “If you are a gaming customer and would like to have a cocktail as you continue to game up until 4 a.m. we will offer that service, but if you want to hang out at a bar, our bars close at 2 a.m. just like any other bars in the community.”

The Massachusetts Restaurant Association opposed MGM’s request for extended alcohol hours. Concern from Connecticut included possible problem of driving under the influence by the many commuting over from Connecticut.  Brian Hallenbeck , The Day staff writer, reported Foxwoods wants later ‘last call’ to keep up with Mass. casino.  Click on the link to learn more about CT’s casino’s reaction.

It’s GAME ON at Mohegan Sun

Mohegan Sun announced that it plans to open Game On, a 23,000-square-foot interactive arcade, sports bar and restaurant, this winter inside its new convention center. Game On will feature a luxury bowling alley, ping pong tables, billiards, darts and arcade games in addition to multiple high-definition screens and a 65-foot bar. It will be located on a lower level of the new Earth Expo & Convention Center, which is hosting Barrett-Jackson’s Northeast Auction of collector cars next weekend. The new venue will accommodate parties and private events.

Rhode Island Is First To Legalize Sports Betting in New England

Governor Gina Raymond signed the bill into law a bill allowing legal sports wagering in the state. The Rhode Island General Assembly approved the $9.559-billion budget bill which includes legalized sports wagering. The bill established legal sports wagering at Twin River Casino and “reflects an agreement reached with IGT, the operator of the state’s electronic lottery systems which also won the contract for operating sports wagering in the state.” Rhode Island will retain 51% of sports betting revenue, IGT will get 32%, and the Twin River Lincoln facility and Tiverton facility will get 17%.

East Windsor Approves MMCT Zoning Permit for Casino

Courtesy WFSB

MMCT Venture, the joint company of the Mohegan and Mashantucket Pequot tribes, has proposed opening a $300 million 188,000 square foot gaming and entertainment facility in spring 2020. It would include around 1,800 slot machines, 50 table games and 10 poker tables. This is just one of many hoops the Mohegan & Mashantuckets had to go through to build a casino that is said to be able to keep jobs and gambling revenue from flying up to MGM Springfield.  For renderings and the story, click on East Windsor Casino Takes Shape In New Renderings

Finally, a Tragedy at Foxwoods

The president and CEO of Foxwoods Resort Casino, Felix Rappaport, passed away unexpectedly due to heart disease, according to the state medical examiner’s office.  For more information and an article highlighting his accomplishments and respect in the industry, click on Visionary Felix Rappaport Was a Star Wherever He Went.

Sol Toro at Mohegan Sun Renovated – a Dining Review

The new Sol Toro entrance

One month ago, a favorite restaurant at Mohegan Sun – “Sol Toro” – had a facelift.  Renovations were quick. When all three of us at NETG visited, not only were we surprised at at what we saw, we liked what we saw and loved what we tasted.

The Renovations

The formerly dark and somewhat gloomy interior has been renovated. Gone are the front grills in the entry, and the dark wood that consumed the interior of the restaurant. New paint, new lighter scaled furniture, and better lighting have transformed this space into a most welcoming space. Brightly colored chairs and light wood table tops make the space shade inviting. Design changes include an expanded bar and lounge area for socializing while sipping margaritas or trying one of their 285 tequilas.

Tons of Tequila at SolToro, Mohegan Sun

Menu Changes

According toHotelmanagement.net, SolToro’s menu of Mexican classics with a modern twist will also get an upgrade. New dishes from” culinary director Chip Miller will include Queso Three Ways (chili con carne, roasted corn & bean, chipotle bacon); Mexican Shrimp Cocktail with tomato broth and roasted poblanos; and carne asada of marinated prime NY strip, served with cheese enchiladas, charred onions and zesty chimichurri sauce.”  A staple of their previous menu, table side guacamole, is still available mild, medium, and spicy, and is not to be missed.

Our Experience

Delicious tacos at Solo Toro Tequila Grill

We passed on drinks, expecting libations at the New England Black Wolves Pro Lacrosse game.  Three of us ordered the tacos.  My BAJA FISH Tacos were the best fish tacos I ever had.  Slightly seasoned with lime scented cabbage, the ancho tartare added heat to the mahi.  The tacos shells stayed nice and firm and were absolutely delicious.  Others in our party had the ADOBO PORK Tacos, which included cilantro jicama slaw, grilled pineapple, and a jalapeño ranch sauce, which were also outstanding.  Miguel had the CHICKEN BURRITO with cheese, rice and beans a step above the usual Mexican sides.  We all agreed we would return and try some of their more exotic entrees like their ROASTED DUCK and STEAK tacos, as well as their tableside Guac.

Recommended

The new lighter look of the bar area.

Solo Toro, part of the Michael Jordan’s group of restaurants at Mohegan Sun, continues to be a good dining experience, and now with the new bright ambience, it’s now a great dining experience.

Aubin (Binbin) has been involved in music all his life, including 40 years of choral conducting, and performing professionally in different musical genres since he was 10 years of age.  “Heck, I even performed in Mohegan Sun’s Wolf Den, Foxwoods’ Atrium Lounge, and Twin River’s Lighthouse Bar & Lounge.” (All venues in New England casinos)

Twenty years ago casino gambling became a side interest. The business, the history, the expansion across the U.S., the myths, the superstitions and innovations of legalized gambling all became a fascination. “It allows us to witness the best and worst of human nature and human interaction.”

The goal was to provide a service and resource for anyone visiting New England’s expanding casino market.

CT’s Third Casino, An Underwhelming Reality?

Proposed MMCT joint venture casino between CT’s Mohegan & Pequot tribes

Last week, MMCT, the joint venture between Connecticut’s Mohegan and Pequot tribes, showed a slight blueprint of what the satellite casino planned for East Windsor, a blueprint that was underwhelming. The news was that it would include 2,000 slot machines, up to 150 tables, and a five-story, 1,800-parking space garage.

Steve Ruddock, a veteran of the gambling industry and longtime contributor to numerous publications including DFS Report, USPoker.com, and PlayMa.com.  As a resident of Massachusetts and a scholar of the gambling industry, Steve has a special perspective on the  gambling expansion in Connecticut.

Drawings were submitted to the town and are little more than a rough sketch a first glimpse at the thinking behind the $300 million development.  Steve’s analysis was quite good and can be read at “IT APPEARS EAST WINDSOR CASINO’S BIGGEST SELLING POINT IS A PARKING GARAGE”

Blueprint for MMCT East Windsor Casino.

Steve and I exchanged opinions and I believe I’m now leaning his way. He called it a “slot box.”  I hesitated when I read his opinion and asked him what constitutes a “slot box.”  Steve’s definition was “A casino without a lot of amenities. Somewhere you go to gamble and do little else.”  I must admit, after seeing his explanation, I do agree.  This third casino is not going to come close in comparison to MGM Springfield.  As presented, it IS a “slots box.”

It made me wonder what other slot boxes this size and this amount of table games and slots were in Las Vegas or elsewhere.

Of course there is Plainridge Park Casino and Raceway in Plainville, Massachusetts.  But that was the Massachusetts Gaming Commission’s plan all along.

Elsewhere in New England there is Oxford and Twin River casinos in Maine and Rhode Island respectively, but both have completed, or in the process of completing a hotel.

NYC has its Empire City and Resorts World, both large slot joints, with no hotel. But these two casinos with few amenities are highly successful. East Windsor is a far cry from New York City concerning the number of available gamblers, so the comparison of how successful a slot parlor could be to keep revenue and jobs in Connecticut is questionable.

Resorts World, Queens, NY.

In Vegas, with that definition would you consider Casino Royale on the Strip, Dotty’s chain of slot joints, (much smaller, no hotel), and some of Downtown Vegas Casinos, like El Cortez and the Plaza, even though they have hotels.

It’s too bad that a hotel isn’t in the mix for East Windsor, never mind a good restaurant like Stack’s (Plainridge Park) or the many high end eateries at both Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun.  Or, how about some meeting space to add to the hotel to add to convention crowds from Hartford. In other words, there needs to be more incentive besides program loyalty to keep Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun patrons from crossing over the Massachusetts border.

Bottom line is, why not build a world class casino, smaller scale, like those in SouthEastern CT? Something that would be able to compete with MGM Springfield. Something that costs more than $900,000!

I’m not in favor of open bidding in Bridgeport, or anywhere else in CT. The future ramifications would open up a can of worms that would not fix CT’s financial woes. But I do think that East Windsor and the people of CT deserve better from MMCT.

Thanks to Steve Ruddock for inspiring this post.
