Foxwoods will build a new casino and restaurant at its resort


Foxwoods Casino officials have announced an $85 million expansion that will add 50,000 feet of gaming space and a 13,000 square foot restaurant to the Ledyard complex.

Construction of the new casino is expected to begin in November and open next summer. It will be located in the Foxwoods Grand Ballroom, located in the Grand Pequot area of ​​the resort.

The makeover project is the first major gaming expansion to the resort’s casino since 2008, when Fox Tower opened in Foxwoods, with more than 800 rooms and suites, plus a casino, theater and nightclub. .

Jason Guyot, President and CEO of Foxwoods Resort Casino, said the project shows that “we continue to redefine what it means to be a leader in hospitality, gaming and entertainment.”

“(We) look forward to bringing this vision to life,” Guyot said.

The new gaming space will feature both table games and slots, as well as a new high-limit slot machine, according to Foxwoods officials.

It will also include two new bars: one with 40 seats and 35 slot machines and a second public bar with 15 seats.

The new restaurant will be operated by a celebrity chef, whose identity will be revealed later this year.

The new casino is the latest in a series of announcements designed to celebrate Foxwood’s 30th anniversary.

Casino officials announced in February a plan to partner with Great Wolfe Lodge to build an indoor water park and hotel that will open in 2024. The new facility will be built on a 15-acre site adjacent to the casino.

And a new 80,000 square foot exhibit center will open in Foxwoods in November.

Foxwoods in North America’s largest casino, according to resort officials.
