Foxwoods Launches Groundbreaking Interactive Arena Gaming Experience

Mashantucket, CTFoxwoods® Resort Casino has ushered in a new era of gaming with the wildly successful grand opening of PLAY Arena @ Foxwoods. As an immersive, multi-sensory environment, PLAY brings together the latest trends in gaming, interactivity and entertainment to create a fast-paced atmosphere where players can enjoy their favorite games from the comfort of a single play station.

Located in the all-new Great Cedar Casino, PLAY Arena @ Foxwoods is New England’s first and only arena-style gaming environment with over 30 stations and multi-gaming functionality that allows players to seamlessly toggle between various games at the push of a button. PLAY activates different moods to create a diverse range of atmospheres, from ShowTime (pulsing music and club-like lighting) to classic (smooth jazz and soft lights) to VIP which includes soft music, dim lighting and increased personalization. 

The unveiling of PLAY Arena @ Foxwoods also marks the official re-opening of the Great Cedar Casino, which now features a high-speed slots floor, upgraded high-limit lounge and scores of fresh table games aimed at enhancing the popular gaming area. The slots floor includes hundreds of new machines featuring over a dozen new themes including The Big Bang Theory, Betty White, Buffalo Gold, multiple Wheel of Fortune themes and more.

“PLAY @ Foxwoods offers guests the most fun and exciting gaming experience in a social setting where friends can play and win together.  The stress-free environment allows players of all levels to learn new games at a relaxed pace,” said Foxwoods President & CEO Felix Rappaport.  “PLAY @ Foxwoods signals a landmark for the resort as Foxwoods continues to solidify its status as a national gaming leader with cutting-edge technology.”
Additional digital and interactive arena features position PLAY as an ideal attraction for every category of gamer, from millennials to boomers ranging from novice to veteran. A centrally located, high-definition video wall delivers high-impact visual content, encouraging guests and doubling as a player information display which allows the casino to recognize players as well as big wins, and offer an educational overview of available games. Dealers at PLAY contribute to the fun atmosphere, singing, dancing and creating a perfectly tailored environment based on the arena’s mood.

The introduction of PLAY is the latest in a string of gaming developments at Foxwoods as the property celebrates its 25th Anniversary this year. Foxwoods recently became the second gaming jurisdiction in the United States to offer skill-based slot machines and announced a strategic partnership with Victory Square Venture Capital to create a proprietary suite of digital gaming experiences.
