This reminds me of a situation back home (in TX) when Frisco opened up a mall just over the border from Plano. All the teenage kids rushed to the Frisco mall and abandoned the ones in Plano. As a result - all the sales tax revenue from Plano kids went to Frisco. Not a good situation.
Anyhoo, Mohegan Sun is planning an expansion:
The 64,000-square-foot Casino of the Wind includes a 42-table poker room, more than 650 slot machines and 28 table games. The new space is the first phase of Mohegan Sun's $925 million expansion, which will include a 920-room hotel and more stores and restaurants when finished in 2010.
Mohegan Sun is reintroducing poker, which it discontinued a few years ago, as the game has grown in popularity in recent years. Its first major poker tournament is planned for October.
More casinos to choose from and the reintroduction of poker - sweet.
