The Mohegan Tribe of Connecticut is seeking to open a second commercial casino in Pennsylvania.

The tribe signed a partnership to build a casino in Philadelphia. The license for the site was previously held by a group that included the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation.

“There is no doubt that Mohegan Sun is a perfect fit with Market East Associates and the 8th and Market project,” Mohegan Chairman Bruce "Two Dogs" Bozsum said in a press release. “Over the past 16 years we have established ourselves as leaders and experts in exciting destination creation – and the 8th and Market site in Philadelphia, at the center of Philadelphia’s business, retail, convention center, hotel and historic district, is a premier location for our next success.”

The Mohegans entered Pennsylvania in 2004 with a slot machine facility. The Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs now offers table games.
