Foxwoods Casino Owner Sinks Teeth into Online Gambling

25 April 2013

Foxwoods Resort Casino has announced plans to partner with the GameAccount Network to prepare for online gaming opportunities in the United States. Foxwoods, which is owned by the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe, is making the move for several reasons. Said the tribe in a statement, published in a Hartford Courant article:

 “The alliance brings together the owners and operators of the largest resort casino in North America and one of Europe’s leading independent privately owned Internet gaming system and software providers. The parties will initially focus on play-for-fun online gaming opportunities in the U.S., and in the event that legislation is enacted allowing real-money wagering, the parties will utilize GameAccount’s cutting edge technology and platform to ensure a safe and fair game for all players.”

Like all agreements in the land-based and online gambling arena, the partnership is subject to regulatory approval.

The prospects for online gambling are promising for the tribe as its website,, gets about one million monthly visitors. If approved, the tribe states it will offering free-play Internet gaming later on this year, and will later be collaborating with GameAccount to provide services to other US gambling operators. Foxwoods’ main competitor, Mohegan Sun, reached a similar agreement online poker agreement with Vegas-based Bally Technologies last year.
