Mohegan Sun, Resorts Casino Hotel and Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs Announce New Reward Program Starting October 1st

In this case, three isn’t a crowd as Mohegan Sun in Connecticut, Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs in Pennsylvania, and Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City will now offer guests a new way to use and earn their rewards points. Effective October 1st, the three properties will offer a cross-marketing promotion which allows guests to use their rewards points at any of the three properties.

 This comes after an announcement was made in August, that pending regulatory approval, Mohegan Gaming Advisors - a subsidiary of the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority which owns and operates Mohegan Sun in Connecticut and Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs in Pennsylvania - would take over management of Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City.

“With both our properties in Connecticut and Pennsylvania, our approach has always been focused on the guest experience and ensuring that each time a guest experiences one of our exciting destinations, they leave wanting to come back and do it all over again,” said Mitchell Etess, Chief Executive Officer for the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority , told the Examiner.

“With the addition of Resorts, we are now able to expand and augment our unique offerings to include an iconic beachfront destination. It’s our hope that guests will really take advantage of this new platform to try one of our properties that they might have not considered in the past."

Guests of all three properties will retain membership in their respective ‘home’ casino’s Player’s Club program, but will now be able to utilize the points earned at each of the properties to purchase an array of on-property offerings such as retail, dining, hotel accommodations, entertainment and more pending on the location.

Each property has unique attributes that can offer guests an exclusive experience – and when combined – create a one-of-a-kind program that will reward guest loyalty with a broader menu of amenities. Mohegan Sun in Connecticut is the Northeast’s premier entertainment destination and is home to over 75 shops and restaurants, top-ranked entertainment venues, a world-class spa, 18-hole championship golf course and so much more. The pastoral and picturesque Pocono Downs area of Pennsylvania is the perfect spot to enjoy live harness racing, exciting table games and an array of culinary options. And, the iconic New Jersey boardwalk steeped in history and tradition sets the stage for a beachfront experience at Resorts Casino Hotel’s Boardwalk.

With all three the properties located within a four-hour drive and centrally located in one of the country’s most populous regions, guests are able to enjoy a quick getaway or relaxing vacation with only a moment’s notice at any of the three destinations.

An unforgettable evening of wine and jazz will benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (MS) as Passion Vines Wine & Spirit Co. of Somers Point and the Somers Point Jazz Society present ‘The Right Notes’ at Greate Bay Country Club Thursday, October 11 from 7-10 p.m.

Passion Vines, owned and operated by Michael Bray, has held a long commitment to helping find a cure for MS. Finding a cure has become one of many passions for Bray – his mother Jayne is wheelchair-bound due to the disease. According to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, every hour in the United States, someone is newly diagnosed with MS – a disease of the central nervous system.

"MS has been our charitable drive and focus at Passion Vines since 2004. We are passionate about hosting this event and finding a cure for this debilitating disease," Bray explained. 

Nick Regine, President of the Somers Point Jazz Society, also struggles with the crippling disease.  

“This event demonstrates how a passionate private business and a non-profit organization can join forces to support an important cause,” Regine said.

Tenor saxophone master Michael Pedicin and his quartet will start off the evening’s events.  Pedicin has toured with jazz greats Maynard Ferguson, Dave Brubeck, Stanley Clarke and Pat Martino. Following the performance, Passion Vines will offer the most comprehensive charitable wine tasting ever held in South Jersey – more than 75 top scoring wines from around the globe comprise this tasting, including world renowned producers Cakebread Cellars, Caymus Vineyards and Nickel & Nickel – plus a rare taste of Chateau Beychevelle Saint Julien 1989 and Cos D' Estournel Saint Estephe 1970. 

Butlered hors d'oeuvres by Greate Bay and artisanal cheese pairings by Di Bruno Bros will also be served; and a live auction including VIP wine trip to Italy and more add to the evening’s festivities.

Over the past eight years, Passion Vines has raised more than $20,000 for the National MS Society, and The Right Notes is evolving to be one of their most exciting fundraiser events to date.

Tickets are $75 per person and are limited to the first 200 guests. To purchase tickets or for more information and/or support opportunities, call Kristin Marnie at (215) 271-1500, or visit www.passionvines.com.   

MS stops people from moving. The National MS Society exists to make sure it doesn’t. The Society does this through their home office and 50-state network of chapters by funding more MS research, providing more services to people with MS, offering more professional education and furthering more advocacy efforts than any other MS organization in the world. Join the movement atwww.nationalMSsociety.org  or by calling 1-800-FIGHT-MS.
