Puerto Rico has been known for its rich casino offerings for decades but has lacked a real top-shelf gaming experience. Lately, things have begun to change. Some of the major players in the US casino industry are tapping into this attractive market. This is a particularly attractive market for US-based casinos as it already features a tourism offer that attracts high-end clientele.
Foxwoods Resort Casino First High End Casino in Puerto Rico
The latest power player to invest in this budding gaming market is Foxwoods. The casino giant, operating out of Connecticut, is run and owned by Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation. They already have one state-of-the-art gambling establishment, the Foxwoods Resort Casino, located in Ledyard, Connecticut. The Ledyard casino is the biggest hotel and casino complex in all of North America.
Now, the Mashantucket Nation is dipping its toe for the first time in the Carribian gambling market. They have just invested in their first casino in the area. The casino is nestled in the iconic Fairmont El San Juan Resort in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The owners are hoping to capitalize on yet undeveloped offerings in the region and become a magnet for tourists and gamblers traveling from all over the world.
They are the first major casino player to try their luck in Puerto Rico and the operators hope that they will build a successful business for a long time to come. The islanders also hope that this new exclusive facility will provide a significant boost to their economy.
