Mohegan, the commercial gaming unit of the Mohegan Tribe in Connecticut, told that its Poconos property officially debuted the Aristocrat Gaming Lounge at Mohegan Pennsylvania on Friday. Located just inside the resort’s hotel entrance, the 2,000-square-foot facility features 55 of the latest slot titles from Aristocrat, a leading gaming manufacturer.

We are thrilled to launch the smoke-free Aristocrat Gaming Lounge as part of our commitment to providing exceptional and comfortable gaming experiences. Our collaboration with Aristocrat, an award-winning casino slot provider, has allowed us to offer a truly exciting gaming experience,” said Tony Carlucci, Mohegan Pennsylvania president.

A few notable titles inside the smoke-free slots venue include longtime classics Dragon Link, Lightning Link, and Buffalo, as well as newer titles growing in popularity such as Triple Supreme Extreme, Mo Mummy, and Whisker Wheels.

Clean Air Gaming Options

Mohegan Pennsylvania’s main casino floor spans 67,000 square feet and is equipped with over 1,600 slots and nearly 60 live dealer table games. About half of the gaming floor is reserved for cigarette smoking, though cigars are prohibited.

Mohegan’s Aristocrat Gaming Lounge follows a national trend of casinos offering cleaner air environments for gamblers seeking smoke-free spaces. Though Pennsylvania law limits casinos to designate up to half of their floor space for tobacco consumption, critics of the state’s clean indoor air law that provides casinos with exemptions say smoke knows no boundaries and dangerous secondhand fumes spread to the areas supposed to be smoke-free.

The Aristocrat Gaming Lounge at Mohegan, a casino spokesperson told, is “fully enclosed with an entrance to and from the Sky Food Court.” There is also a doored entrance to the smoke-free gaming facility from the Mohegan Pennsylvania hotel.

Mohegan’s Aristocrat Gaming Lounge is only the third fully enclosed smoke-free casino facility in the commonwealth. 

Smokeless Casinos

Only two casinos of Pennsylvania’s 17 brick-and-mortar gaming properties don’t take advantage of the state’s indoor smoking allowance — Parx Casino north of Philadelphia in Bensalem and its sister satellite property Parx Casino Shippensburg.

Parx Casino has for several years been the richest casino in the state. Parx last year won $588.2 million from its physical slots and table games. Wind Creek Bethlehem, which allows smoking, was second at $526.3 million.

Mohegan Pennsylvania generated retail slot and table revenue of approximately $211.2 million, down slightly from the $215.6 million that the property won in 2022.

Mohegan Pennsylvania was known as Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs when the gaming facility opened in 2005. The casino was rebranded to Mohegan Sun Pocono in 2015 before undergoing a third rebranding in 2022 to its current name.

Located in Wilkes-Barre, Mohegan Pennsylvania is situated on 400 hillside acres. The resort is highlighted by a 238-room hotel, 20,000 square feet of convention space, a variety of restaurants and bars, retail shopping, nightlife, and live harness horse racing.

A short drive away is the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza which regularly attracts major concert acts and plays host to minor league professional hockey.
