Tribe's Racetrack-Slot Parlor's Next Competitor To Open In Late May

The Mohegan Tribe's Pennsylvania racetrack-slot parlor will face more competition when the Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem in Bethlehem, Pa., opens in late May.

The Sands slot parlor is scheduled to open to the public on May 22 and plans to hold a grand opening celebration on June 9.

Sands, located about 70 miles from Mohegan's Pocono Downs, will open with 3,000 slot machines.

Future plans for the property, contingent upon financing, include a hotel, additional retail space and a museum showcasing history of the Industrial Age.
