Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment launched Mohegan Digital. The iGaming division of the brand will lead the charge in providing cutting-edge online gaming solutions to Mohegan’s loyal fan base and grow the business to meet the needs of new customers on a global scale.

MGE has appointed Rich Roberts as President and Aviram Alroy as Vice President Product to lead these efforts and oversee digital operations.
“We’ve consistently seen strong growth in digital gaming across our properties, especially in this past year, and as legal sports betting continues to expand in the U.S., the timing was right for us to launch Mohegan Digital,” said Ray Pineault, President and CEO of Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment. “Over the years, Mohegan has made great technological advancements in the digital space, working with industry-leading partners to provide state-of-the-art advancements to casino and sportsbook online operations. With Mohegan Digital, we are looking to expand and enhance these efforts to elevate the experience and deliver on our promise to provide world-class entertainment for our guests on a digital scale.
