US.- The FanDuel sportsbook at the Mohegan Sun Casino & Resort, in Connecticut, will host a viewing party for the 154th running of the Belmont Stakes. The racing event features the third and final leg of the Triple Crown thoroughbred series on June 11.

The 11,000 square-foot sportsbook, which opened in March, will show the one-and-a-half-mile race on its 140-foot video wall. Bettors can also place wagers online and via the mobile app. Michael “Mut” Mutnansky will participate as the guest handicapper.

The firm will celebrate the occasion with a series of offers. Members of Mohegan Gaming’s Momentum loyalty programme will be able to participate in a $2,500 “Belmont Stakes Alive for Five” placing a $10 bet to predict the winner in each of the five designated races. The contest takes the form of a knockout championship.

In March, FanDuel launched its sportsbook at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut. The 11,000 square feet sportsbook has 39 betting kiosks and 222 seats as well as a bar. There are six cashier windows and 39 betting kiosks that are available 24 hours a day. The venue features a 140-foot tall TV for live NFL, NBA and MMA matches.

Mohegan Sun in Connecticut announces major renovation

Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut, has announced plans to invest $15m in a new VIP lounge and other amenities, including upgrades of its two most luxurious hotel suites and improvements to Mohegan Sun Golf Club in Baltic. The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2023.

The Mohegan Tribe said the renovation includes a new 6,500-square-foot VIP lounge and bar inside Casino of the Earth.

Renovations also are also underway inside the 3,500-square-foot Royal Suites on the top floors of the Sky Tower hotel. More than $3m is being spent on the suites, each of which has two master bedrooms, two Jacuzzis, butler service, a large circular living room and panoramic views.
