Sorry, I Still Don't Get It



I visited the old casino building at Mohegan Sun in Plains Township two weeks ago, and the experience was less than thrilling. I gave the new building a try yesterday morning.

The new slots parlor, restaurant and shopping complex is excessive in every sense of the word. You know what? It's a casino. It's supposed to be. It's worth a visit, even if you're not "in" to slot machines and overpriced food. You really have to see it. They did it right.

My visit was around 7:30 am, and the building was just about empty. I had my choice of machines. I sat down at one of "The Price is Right" slots and stuffed in a $5 bill. After a few tries, I was up 60 cents! Mr. Lucky has a philosophy: quit while you're ahead. I walked out a wee bit richer than when I entered.

Even though the new Mohegan Sun building is spectacular, slot machines bore me. Sorry, I still don't get it.
