Las Vegas

Mohegan’s operations at the Virgin Hotels Las Vegas resort are set to come to an end as the partnership announced plans to transition to a new integrated gaming offering. 

Part of the Curio Collection owned by Hilton, the Virgin Hotels resort will transition to a new casino operation if required regulatory approvals are met. Following the transition period, Mohegan will cease to manage or lease the venue.  

“We are grateful for the collaboration with Mohegan, and we will continue to work together to ensure a well-ordered transition of casino operations,” said Cliff Atkinson, President at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, who will oversee the transition. 

“This transition is a natural progression in our journey to provide guests of Virgin Hotels Las Vegas with a seamless resort experience.”

The two companies asserted that a “smooth handover” will be prioritised, with the transition period set to be completed by the end of the year with “no significant disruptions” expected for the resort’s current operations. 

Ray Pineault, President and CEO, Mohegan, added: “Mohegan’s partnership with Virgin Hotels Las Vegas was, upon inception, and is today in the very best interest of the guests and hard-working team members whose patronage and contributions to the business are deeply appreciated.

“While Mohegan’s role will come to an end, we are confident that the Resort’s unwavering focus on guest and team member satisfaction will continue.”
