Mohegan and Virgin Hotels Las Vegas Team Up

Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment is one of the biggest names in the casino industry. They simply mastered how to offer casino games and provide top-of-the-class hospitality, with resorts all around the globe.

The master developer company which focuses on integrated entertainment is still not present in Las Vegas, which is one of the biggest markets in the industry. However, it seems that they are determined to change that as they are about to enter the magnificent world of Vegas via a venture with JC Hospitality.

MGE has made an agreement with JC Hospitality which will last for several years. It allows MGE to operate the gaming space inside of Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, which are going to open their doors very soon. These hotels are actually a part of Curio Collection owned by Hilton. Right now, all it takes is to complete their construction, and MGE needs to obtain a license that is provided by the Nevada Gaming Commission.

Mario Kontomerkos is the chief executive officer for Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment. He stated that MGE’s alignment with Virgin Hotels Las Vegas will extend the company’s growth and reach, as they will enter into the legendary city of Las Vegas, the entertainment capital of the world.

Moreover, Kontomerkos added that all people who visit the venue, no matter where they come from, will have an “extraordinary guest journey” that only the alliance between MGE and Virgin is able to deliver.

The strategic alliance between the two brands will definitely be a puff of fresh air in Las Vegas, as MGE still has to leave a trace on this city and show its residents and visitors its amazing offer.

Doing Well

MGE has been doing pretty well lately, and it has recently started a chapter of growth which aims to make the company No. 1 in the casino industry. They want to become the leading entertainment resort developer in the world, and they are on the way to becoming one.

The organization behind such a powerful growth of the company is the Mohegan Tribe of Connecticut. The tribe owns MGE, and they are going to become the first Native American Tribe to operate a gaming floor in Las Vegas, which is a huge achievement when you think of it.

James Gessner Jr. is interim chairman of the Mohegan Tribe. He said that their collaboration with Virgin brings the best in both companies. Moreover, he added that the partnership will continue the tradition of the Mohegan Tribe of paving new ways for growth and allowing others to follow their footsteps.

Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment is an old company, and, as an extension of the Mohegan Tribe, they base their business principles on some traditional values. However, they also try to keep in sync with various modern principles, which makes them a really unique company that does things in a really interesting and exciting manner.

Richard “Boz” Bosworth is the president and CEO of JC Hospitality LLC, and he stated that he and his company are excited that the Mohegan Tribe and MGE will be a part of the Las Vegas market, especially since they chose Virgin Hotels Las Vegas to be their entry point.

He added that his company always looks to partner up with the best-in-class companies in the industry, and MGE further expanded their commitment to that strategy. In other words, he believes that MGE is doing an excellent job and is glad to join forces with them in order to present their offer in Vegas.

The casino resort run by the two companies will open by the end of 2020!
