By

The property held a soft launch on November 17, 2021.

The Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation has this week, in partnership with LionGrove, launched the Foxwoods El San Juan Casino, found at the storied Fairmont El San Juan Hotel in Puerto Rico.

While the property has planned a grand opening for January 2022, a soft launch occurred on November 17, allowing patrons to visit the famed hotel.

In attendance was Puerto Rico Governor Pedro Pierlusi as well as the Mayor of Carolina, José Carlos Aponte Dalmau and a number of Tribal Council members.

"As planned, we are thrilled to finally reopen our doors after five years and deliver exciting new gaming and entertainment experiences to the wonderful people of Puerto Rico and visitors from afar," said Stuart I.C. Levene, Managing Director/GM of Foxwoods El San Juan Casino.

"This property has been emblematic for Puerto Rico and thus our intent was to maintain the rich history of the venue, and we truly believe the casino's new identity beautifully pays homage to the casino's legendary history. Today marks the beginning of an iconic new chapter for Puerto Rico's gaming innovation, and we're excited for all to experience the revitalized Foxwoods El San Juan Casino firsthand."

"This past January, we made the historic announcement that this iconic casino would reopen its doors. After a lot of work, today I am pleased to be present to formalize the opening of Foxwoods El San Juan Casino," said Governor Pierluisi.

The property brings an investment of $12.5m to the local area, while creating over 150 direct jobs, noted the Governor. He went on to reiterate his hope that the casino will boost tourism and investment in Puerto Rico, highlighting the estimated $22m in revenue the resort will bring to the region.

"Today is a landmark milestone for the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation as we expand the Foxwoods Resort Casino brand - for the first time ever - to the Caribbean," concluded Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation Chairman Rodney Butler.
