Back in 1986, the Mashantucket Pequot nation opened a high-stakes bingo hall in Foxwoods, Connecticut. Since then, the Foxwoods Resort Casino has become easily the biggest casino in Connecticut, the greater New England area, and perhaps even the U.S. outside of the Las Vegas and Atlantic City gaming capitals.
In fact, Foxwoods is actually six casinos in one, with the whole complex comprising just shy of 6,400 slot machines and video poker games with coin denominations running the gamut from 1¢ to $100; alongside these are 380 tables devoted to 15 different games, including classics such as blackjack, craps, roulette, three-card poker, Spanish 21, Pai Gow poker and more.
But there’s much more: Foxwoods Resort Casino includes 100 tables devoted to poker in its own WPT World Poker Room. Here Texas Hold ‘Em games can be found starting at $1 blinds and no-limit games are possible in Texas Hold ‘Em, Seven Card Stud and Omaha variants. Naturally, a number of World Poker Tour satellite tournaments are held at Foxwoods. Foxwoods also boast a racebook service and there’s still that world’s biggest bingo hall.
For the most games in a world-class environment, Foxwoods Resort Casino may simply be the best in the northeast U.S.
