Pequot Woodlands will have a forest motif and feature slots, table games and a slot bar on the Grand Pequot Concourse.

Foxwoods Resort Casino’s new venue, the Pequot Woodlands Casino, will open on August 29 in Connecticut. Pequot Woodlands is located on the Grand Pequot Concourse and is 50,000 square feet.

The new casino will feature over 430 slot machines, an additional high-limit slot room with 130 machines and a 40-seat slot bar called Truth Searcher. Pequot Woodlands will also include 24 table games, a public bar and a casino cage.

Jason Guyot, President & CEO of Foxwoods Resort Casino, said in a statement, “We are proud to open our Pequot Woodlands Casino, one of the most significant property updates we have made in recent years.

“This achievement speaks volumes about Foxwoods’ growth and innovation over the past year. We are excited for our guests to experience this dynamic new gaming area, right in the heart of the resort.”

The interior of Pequot Woodlands is inspired by and uses symbols of community and alliance within the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe. The design incorporates forest themes, wood and custom chandeliers.

In July, Foxwoods Resort Casino also opened Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen restaurant in the Grand Pequot Tower. Mark, Donnie and Paul Wahlbergs’ Wahlburgers dining concept will also open at Foxwoods at the end of the month.

Foxwoods Resort Casino also operates free-to-play online casino games and is one of the largest gaming destinations in North America, as well as high revenue contributor and large-scale employer in the state of Connecticut.
