Bridgeport casino plans get political as tribes want to compete with MGM

The Mashantucket Pequot and Mohegan tribes, which operate Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun casinos, are jumping into the competition for a proposed casino in Bridgeport. It’s a move that ups their battle with MGM Resorts International, which is pushing its own $675 million gambling and entertainment plan for Bridgeport. Doubling down on Bridgeport’s future, Mohegan Sun also announced that it will schedule concerts and sporting events at Webster Bank Arena. No casino will be built in Bridgeport, however, without a state law change, meaning that all interested parties will be putting big bets on lobbying when the General Assembly convenes in February. [The Day]
