Pennsylvania Renews Mohegan Sun’s License for Three Years
The operator of the Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs in Plains Township, Pennsylvania, fulfilled all obligations under its initial license, so the seven-member Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board has unanimously voted to renew its license for three more years, reported golackawanna.com.
The board approved the renewal on August 21, following a public input hearing held April 25 at the Plains Township Municipal Building in which Downs Racing operators explained why the license should be renewed.
Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs opened its doors in November 2006 and has since generated $840 million in tax revenue through slot machine and table games. The casino employs more than 1,700 people.
