Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs (formerly Pocono Downs) is a racino in Wilkes-Barre, Luzerne County, in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania. The casino features over 2,300 slots, and live tables for blackjack, roulette and poker. A ⅝-mile (1-kilometer) harness track is also a major attraction.
Mohegan Sun acquired the Pocono Downs racetrack on January 25, 2005 in a $280 million purchase of the Pocono Downs Racetrack from Penn National Gaming. Mohegan Sun renamed the property "Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs," and began a major expansion. It began operation in November 2006 as the first slots casino in the state of Pennsylvania.
In January 2010, then Governor Ed Rendell signed a bill to legalize table games in Pennsylvania. The Mohegan Sun casino was among the first to receive approval for table games, and planned to hire 600 new employees for the expansion. Table games began operation on July 13, 2010.
In November 2013, Mohegan Sun opened a hotel that is connected to the casino floor.
