Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment, developer of leading integrated entertainment resorts worldwide, and JC Hospitality LLC have announced a multi-year agreement to operate the 60,000-square foot gaming space at the forthcoming Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, an investment of the LiUNA Pension Fund of Central and Eastern Canada. LiUNA’s investment in Virgin Hotels Las Vegas is managed by Fengate Asset Management.
“LiUNA is pleased with our strong working team behind this strategic investment and this new partnership with the renowned Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment is the latest achievement in our path to the launch of Virgin Hotels Las Vegas,” said Joseph Mancinelli, LiUNA International Vice President and Regional Manager for Central and Eastern Canada.
JC Hospitality also recently announced an agreement with AEG Presents to assume the management, operations and booking for The Joint, a popular venue inside the property, beginning fall 2020. The eight-month renovation is slated to begin in early February 2020 and the re-imagined Las Vegas lifestyle casino resort is slated to open at the end of 2020.
“Together with Virgin Hotels, experience seekers all over the world will have the opportunity to partake in an extraordinary guest journey that only our strategic alliance can deliver,” said Mario Kontomerkos, MGE’s Chief Executive Officer.
“Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment, as an extension of the Mohegan Tribe, pride themselves on traditional principles, in sync with modern values. We are excited that Virgin Hotels Las Vegas will be their first entry in the Las Vegas market,” said Richard “Boz” Bosworth, president and chief executive officer of JC Hospitality LLC. “MGE further expands on our commitment to partner with best-in-class operators for the Virgin Hotels Las Vegas transformation.”
