The tribal operator of Mohegan Sun said it has been selected to oversee daily operations of two casinos and an entertainment complex in Niagara Falls, Canada.

Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment (MGE), which oversees the company and its subsidiary casinos in Connecticut and Pennsylvania, announced Monday it has been selected by the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp. (OLG) to assume daily operations of its Fallsview Casino Resort, Casino Niagara, and 5,000-seat Niagara Falls Entertainment Centre, which is currently being built.

MGE will serve as OLG's service provider beginning in summer 2019 following a "competitive" procurement process. OLG will assist in managing the casinos, known as the Niagara Gaming Bundle, including approvals for operational changes.

Mohegan is also nearing regulatory approval, in partnership with Mashantucket's Foxwoods Resort Casino, on a $300 million satellite casino in East Windsor. The Connecticut tribes are hoping to break ground this fall to challenge revenues lost from MGM Springfield, which opened last month.

Fallsview Casino spans over 2.5 million square feet, with 200,000 square feet of gaming space and more than 3,000 slot machines and 100 gaming tables. Casino Niagara, meantime, has a 95,000-square-foot gaming floor with 1,500 slot machines and more than 40 table games.

OLG has not said when its new entertainment centre, adjacent to Fallsview Casino, will open.
