Review written by Sophie Couard, February 18, 2016.

Huge, gigantic, massive... the Foxwoods really impressed us when we were there for the first time. I must admit, I did not really expect to find such a monumental complex in this quiet village in Connecticut. In fact, this gigantic complex was the largest casino in North America and even on the entire planet for a long time. You can also find lots of activities for everyone. It is almost a small city that is just waiting to entertain you.

The complex is run by the Mashantucket Pequot Indian tribe. They opened a bingo hall on the 5th of July 1986, which eventually lead to the creation of the Foxwoods Casino in 1992. Slot machines were added in the following year. A poker room was added in 1995. Then, in 2008, the huge MGM Grand casino appeared.

Today, the complex attracts over 40,000 visitors a day. It employs over 10,000 people and covers an area of 435,000 m². For comparison, the Pentagon covers an area of approximately 343,000 m².

Six different casinos

Gaming enthusiasts will not get bored at Foxwoods, as there is really a lot to do. Of course, there are a lot of slot machines and table games, but the complex also has a huge bingo hall, a keno lounge, a poker room and an area solely dedicated to sports betting. The establishment contains no less than 6 independent casinos:

  • the MGM Grand at Foxwoods,
  • the Grand Pequot Casino consisting of the Hampton Club with high stakes slots and the Club Newport International with high limit gaming tables,
  • the Great Cedar Casino,
  • the Festival Slots Casino offering only slot machines,
  • the Rainmaker Casino with a non-smoking gaming hall for slots,
  • the Stargazer Casino which can be visited by invitation only and has very high limits.

The slot machines

The slot machines are spread across the 6 casinos, and there are over 4,800 machines with stakes ranging from 1 cent to $100. You can find:

  • classical mechanical slot machines,
  • video slots with the latest modern technology,
  • games inspired by well-known brands, such as Monopoly, Wheel of Fortune, Grease and also Sex and the City,
  • video poker games.

The table games

The range of traditional games is also very large, and there are over 250 tables where you can play:

  • baccarat,
  • blackjack,
  • blackjack switch,
  • caribbean stud poker,
  • casino war,
  • craps,
  • crazy 4 poker,
  • high five poker,
  • let it ride,
  • money wheel,
  • pai gow poker,
  • pai gow tiles,
  • roulette,
  • sic bo,
  • spanish 21,
  • texas hold'em bonus,
  • three card poker.

The icing on the cake: there are even a few tables from $1 which is great for players with a lower budget!

Poker

Foxwoods has the third largest poker room in the world! The room features 114 tables and you can play tournaments as well. Among them:

  • 7 card stud,

Bingo

One of the main attractions of the complex is the bingo hall which can accommodate about 4,000 people, making it the largest in the world. It is separated into three separate areas: smoking, non-smoking and an area using electronic devices.

Keno

There is also a great keno lounge offering different variants of the game, such as:

  • regular,
  • high roller,
  • 4 corners,
  • edge,
  • top/bottom,
  • ticket to ride,

Sports betting

As the law is rather limited in this area of gambling, the Foxwoods casino offers only a few options for sports betting. You can bet on:

  • horse racing,

4 hotels, 34 restaurants and plenty of other activities
