Game On

By Chris Boyle


While Monte-Carlo, Macau, Las Vegas, or even Atlantic City quickly come to mind when you mention high-stakes gaming, at over six million square feet of non-stop casino, entertainment, and dining excitement, Foxwoods Resort Casino in eastern Connecticut is the largest gaming destination in the Western Hemisphere. And with the right itinerary, it can also be one of the most luxurious.

Base yourself out of the Grand Pequot Tower hotel’s 5,000-square-foot duplex Mashantucket Villa. Sporting three bedrooms, six baths, dual winding staircases, a formal dining room, full bar, en-suite elevator, and more, this sky pad is strictly reserved for high rollers.

The resort doesn’t share the nightly rate, but the staff keep about $10,000 worth of truffles on hand for villa guests, so that should help you ballpark a price.

Fine dining options abound throughout the property, with a signature David Burke Prime representing the higher end. Try the 75-day Himalayan salt dry-aged rib eye, a meat-based epiphany to be sure.

While there are variants on nearly every casino game known to man at about 350 tables, thousands of slots options, and a race book, look into a night at the StarGazer Casino on the top floor of the Pequot Tower.

This European-style private salon will ensure you and your guests have endless high-stakes fun in a secluded, secure, and luxurious environment.
