In September, Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment (MGE) entered into a multi-year agreement with JC Hospitality to operate the 60,000-square foot gaming space at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, part of Curio Collection by Hilton. The partnership expanded MGE’s growing reach into yet another legendary global entertainment capital, while making MGE the first Tribal casino presence in Las Vegas.
Today, MGE unveiled the logo for its first Las Vegas destination, Mohegan Sun Casino at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. The 60,000-square foot gaming venue, under renovation, is located within Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. The re-imagined Las Vegas lifestyle casino is slated to open at the end of 2020.
New Hires were necessary for the landmark endeavor. MGE has appointed Joe Hasson as General Manager to lead the brand’s first foray into the Las Vegas market. Hasson will oversee the strategic direction of business operations and financial performance of the casino property in coordination with the senior management team. He brings nearly 40 years of industry experience into his new role as General Manager. Recently named Director of Marketing, Tyler Conover will also be instrumental in amplifying Mohegan’s presence and furthering key business initiatives to attract guests. Under their leadership, MGE will deliver memorable guest experiences, best in-class operations, and unmatched personalized service.
“This is an important milestone, and we are eager to bring MGE’s world-class gaming to our network of loyal thrill-seekers in the entertainment capital of the world,” said Mario Kontomerkos, MGE’s Chief Executive Officer. “With industry veterans like Joe and Tyler at the helm of Mohegan Sun Casino Las Vegas, we are confident that our first venture into Las Vegas will be a fruitful one, and we are looking forward to welcoming guests later this year.”
