The Foxwoods Resort Casino has announced that they’re planning on creating a new area for older gamblers, specifically making the area available to those aged 55 or older.
The casino will be making one of the existing gambling floors exclusive for the codgers, keeping out the younger crowd that seems to be louder and raucous. To help get the party started, a party will take place on November 6th, complete with a DJ and cheap wine. No word on if scooters or denture paste will be provided was available as of press time.
A press release from the casino read in part: “It’s time to let the grown-ups play! The safe, sanitized and socially distanced Rainmaker Casino at Foxwoods is exclusively for guests 55 plus from 10AM to midnight every weekend in November! Listen to the best of the 80s while playing your favorite slot machine. Play using your Foxwoods Rewards Card to enjoy special Fox Perxs and giveaways right at the machine. Enjoy complimentary beverages while you play and Happy Hour cocktails made with Boones Farm and kamakazis. [sic]”
The Foxwoods has been struggling to reach previous revenue targets, as Covid has ravaged the casino’s ability to pack in customers. This move goes to show that the company is trying to evolve to survive long-term.
