Location: Mashantucket, Connecticut
General Description: Foxwood Resort and Casino consists of five large hotels: Grand Pequot Tower, The Villas at Foxwood, Grand Cedar Hotel, Two Trees Inn, and Fox Tower; three casinos with 4800 slots, table games, and poker; and shopping with Tanger Outlets at Foxwood and many other shops. Live entertainment is also a major draw with major name acts throughout the year.
1) This resort complex is so large that it was confusing figuring out where the casino was and where to park. Once we found a parking lot, which are all free, we entered the complex and immediately found a casino.
2) During midday in the middle of the week, the slot machines were not very busy and we easily found a wide variety of machines. Unlike many of the casinos we have been in lately, the penny slot machines were not $0.50 machines in disguise. You could play on a lot of machines for $0.25 or even $0.10 with full game action. Since we enjoy casinos for the games and not to win money, this is a big deal for us.
