Citing the forecast for severe weather, the region's casinos make some adjustments
A Foxwoods Resort Casino spokeswoman said hotel guests scheduled to stay today and Tuesday at MGM Grand and Two Trees Inn will be transferred to rooms in Foxwoods' Grand Pequot and Great Cedar hotels for the sake of "operational efficiencies."
Foxwoods' website indicates the casino has shut down its Star Gazer, Festival and Great Cedar casinos as well as its bingo and keno operations and its race book. The casino's Al Dente and Paragon restaurants, which were closed Sunday, will re-open Wednesday and Thursday, respectively.
Mohegan Sun's hotel is sold out for tonight, according to a spokeswoman, who said the casino's gaming floor and the bulk of its restaurants remain open, although that is subject to change.
Mohegan Sun's race book has been closed, the spokeswoman said.
