We are not much for gambling or tours, but we were invited by some friends to try this out. We were guaranteed a fun time, and the friend time would be good also. The bus ride was enjoyable and fun. The tour manager explained all the information we needed, and the bus driver was like wise as friendly. We made other stops and picked up people, plus stops for meals. Meals were included in the price.
Stop one was to Mohegan Sun Casino, which we had never been to . Many machine options and very large casio. They also have shops and restaurants if you have money left. Before leaving i won $200, and also purchased a few items at one of their shops. We boarded the bus and headed for Foxwood Casino, which was only 15 minutes away. When we arrived at Foxwood Casino it was huge. We stayed at the Cedars Hotel, not the newest but nice, and the rooms were large, clean and comfortable. Everyone on the tour stayed on two floors, and we were able to visit rooms and meet for our trip to the casino. Once in the casino everyone split and played their games. We did try to keep up on the winners/losers. Again i won, this time $1500. Newbees are always lucky. We had great meals that were included in the purchase price. Our second night we all went to a show like the Price is Right, and again i was picked and won a microwave-go figure! The third day we headed home and i must say it was a profitable trip for me.
We had a good time and we would do again, but i probably won't be so lucky. All in all it was nice and being with our friends is priceless.
Update On Jun 29, 2010: We are planning our three day trip with our friends, once again this year. This is a very wonderful place to stay and the rooms are really really nice. We hope to bring home some green stuff in a bag. Will let you know how we do. Wish Us Luck!!
