Discover the Best Casinos in the Poconos

Casinos are probably not the first thing you envision when thinking of the Pocono Mountains but hidden among the peaks and verdant greenery are many surprises. There is not just one but two vibrant Poconos casinos that await you! From horse racing to thousands of slot machines, they offer quite the array of entertainment. If you’re wondering what else the Poconos hold in store, download our complimentary Vacation Guide! It is filled with recommendations for all manner of fun activities.

Enjoy the Thrill of Gaming in the Poconos Casinos

The two big casinos here are the Mount Airy Casino Resort and the Mohegan Sun Pocono. There is fun to be had at both establishments—see below for some of what you can expect when you visit them!

Mount Airy Casino Resort

What You’ll Find at the Mount Airy Casino Resort

There are slots and over 70 table games at the bustling Mount Airy Casino Resort, which means you have plenty of options for excitement. This Poconos casino resort is open 24/7. Smoking is permitted, but smoking and non-smoking slots are separated by the table games to accommodate smokers and non-smokers.

Grab a drink and try your luck with one of the many thrilling themed slots, ranging from the Walking Dead to Pac-Man. Choose from classics like Texas hold’em, craps, and roulette or modern versions of poker, blackjack, and other games.

If you’re more of a fan of card games, check out the Poker Parlor! There are nine tables with different offerings as well as periodic tournaments. If you decide to take a break from the casino, there is ample alternative entertainment in the form of events like concerts, comedy shows, and more.

Mohegan Sun Pocono

When you first walk into the Mohegan Sun Pocono, you’ll be impressed by the sheer variety of choice. It will be hard to pick which game you play first out of the rows and rows of over 2,300 slot machines, 90 table games, a poker room, and live and simulcast horse racing.

This variety is perhaps fitting considering that Mohegan Sun Pocono was the first legal land-based casino in the state of Pennsylvania. It is a branch of the original Mohegan Sun in Connecticut.

Beyond the exciting offerings of the casino, there is always something happening here. Be sure to check out the Mohegan Sun Pocono calendar of events before you visit! From piano nights to live comedy, there’s something for everyone.  

Unwind at Mountaintop Lodge

After your lively evening at the casino, come back to relax at Mountaintop Lodge. Our peaceful retreat sits alongside the blue waters of Lake Naomi. When you stay here, you will be close to fantastic attractions in the surrounding towns while still enjoying privacy. There’s plenty to do on site as well; Lake Naomi Club is just down the road with all kinds of things to do. And, when you are a guest of Mountaintop Lodge, you gain complimentary access to all that the Platinum-rated club has to offer.

Our charming Tee Time suite offers a tranquil escape. Its location on the second floor makes for lovely views that overlook the old barn and horse pasture. This room is spacious but cozy, with a sitting area furnished with comfortable, roomy chairs. The bed is fitted with Comphy linens, and your private bathroom is stocked with rejuvenating lemongrass bath products. In the morning, a delicious breakfast is only steps away in the dining room downstairs.
