Pennsylvania's first casino will become the fourth one in the state to include a hotel. Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs will break ground today, July 18, on a 238-room hotel and construction will begin July 23.
A convention center is part of the project; further details will be revealed today.
When built, Mohegan Sun will join Sands Bethlehem, Mount Airy Resort and Casino near Mount Pocono and Valley Forge Casino as the only ones in the state with hotel rooms.
Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs features 55,000 square feet of gaming space, dining and shopping options, nightlife and entertainment.
