US.- Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut has marked its 30th anniversary with the announcement of new spaces at the venue. Located in what was the Festival Casino space, a new High Stakes Bingo Hall will open its doors. Covering 30,000 square feet with more than 2,200 seats, it will offer higher-stakes bingo games and expanded prize pools.

In the current bingo hall’s location, the resort will open the Rainmaker Expo Center, a 75,000 square foot meeting space for events. Meanwhile, the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation has agreed with Great Wolf Resorts to bring an indoor water park resorts to Foxwoods. It’s slated to open in 2024.

Jason Guyot, Foxwoods’ president and CEO, said: “This year marks an incredible milestone for Foxwoods and the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe. Not only is it our 30th anniversary, but it is our most significant year of evolution, innovation, and development for the property to date, and we’re just getting started.

“Since opening our doors three decades ago, we have aimed to exceed our guests’ expectations, and the future will see Foxwoods continue to trailblaze the integrated resort casino concept.

“As we look ahead to the next chapter of Foxwoods, and as we continue to get better every year, I am proud to celebrate this milestone alongside The Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation, Foxwoods team members, our beloved guests, and the local community.”

In November, Foxwoods Resort Casino and DraftKings announced the opening of the new DraftKings Sportsbook in Connecticut to replace a temporary location. Located in the Great Cedar area of the Foxwoods Resort, the new two-story, 12,000-plus square foot sportsbook includes wall-to-wall televisions, multiple VIP rooms, two full bars, and a restaurant.
