The Mohegan Sun Online Casino has been up and running in New Jersey since July 2015. It wasn’t among the first group of online casinos to launch in the state in late 2013, but it has nonetheless established itself as a popular option among NJ online casino players.
In 2013, New Jersey became the third state to legalize online gambling. Since then the Garden State has become the most active and competitive state when it comes to online casinos. Like other NJ online casinos, the Mohegan Sun is licensed and regulated by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement.
The Mohegan Sun Online Casino operates as a sister site to the Resorts Online Casino. Both share the same platform, and thus have a similar look and feel as well as a lot of the same game selection. However the two sites differ when it comes to bonuses and loyalty programs.
Here is a rundown of what those visiting the Mohegan Sun Online Casino can expect to find, including information about those bonuses and other promotions, an explanation of the loyalty program and details regarding the site’s features and game selection, as well as further info about the app, depositing and withdrawal options, customer support and more.
|Mohegan Casino Bonus Code||MAXBONUS|
|No Deposit Bonus||$20|
|Deposit Bonus||100% matching bonus up to $1,000|

Online casinos offer welcome bonuses to encourage players to sign up and create accounts. These bonuses typically come in a couple of different forms: a no deposit bonus or a first deposit bonus. The Mohegan Sun Online Casino offers new players one of each.
New players creating an account at Mohegan Sun Online Casino can receive a $20 no deposit bonus just for signing up. When creating the account, players should enter our exclusive Mohegan Sun bonus code MAXBONUS when prompted in order to receive the no deposit bonus.
As soon as your identity is verified by the site, the $20 will become available as “bonus dollars.” This is more or less free money with which to try out the games, although the bonus dollars aren’t exactly the equivalent of cash.
You cannot withdraw bonus money immediately, but must wager it. To convert it to withdrawable cash, you need to meet a wagering requirement. In the case of the no deposit bonus, the wagering requirement is 5x the bonus amount (i.e. $100) on slots, 25x the bonus amount (i.e. $500) on roulette, table games or video poker, or some combination of the two.
Once you’ve met the wagering requirements, the bonus dollars are converted to cash. Players have 30 days from the time of creating the account to satisfy the requirement and redeem the bonus.
There is also a first deposit bonus available to new players at Mohegan Sun Online Casino. Again, to be eligible to receive this bonus, be sure to enter the MAXBONUS code when signing up.
The deposit bonus is a 100% matching bonus up to $1,000, which is towards the high end among New Jersey online casinos. However, this bonus has a somewhat steeper wagering requirement than the the no deposit bonus.
With the deposit bonus, converting bonus dollars to cash involves wagering at least 30x the bonus amount at slots or 150x the bonus amount at roulette, table games or video poker. Incidentally, the latter games are less volatile and often have a higher return to player, which is why the wagering requirements are higher.
In other words, if you’re depositing $1000 to receive the max bonus, you’ll have a lot of wagering to do to clear it. It would require playing $30,000 at slots in order to convert the bonus dollars to cash, or $150,000 worth of bets on table games. Also keep in mind that there is the same 30-day time limit on clearing the bonus, so be sure to think realistically about how much you want to play when choosing the size of your first deposit and resulting bonus.
To encourage players to make Mohegan Sun Online Casino their go-to site, it offers a loyalty program called Stellar Rewards.
The program involves players accumulating Stellar Points as they play. The points enable players to move up through the loyalty levels, which in turn provides more opportunities to earn cash and other benefits. That said, for all but the high-end players, the amounts of money that can be earned back are quite small.
Points that players accumulate during one month determine their loyalty level for the following month. The Stellar Points are earned as follows:
There are five Stellar Rewards levels: Aura, Star, Nova, Galaxy and Eclipse. All players start out at the Aura level. Here’s a look at how many points are needed each month to advance up through the levels:
Moving up in levels enables players to exchange their Stellar Points for cash at ever more favorable rates:
There are other perks associated with reaching higher Stellar Rewards levels. These include increased deposit limits, luxury gifts, complimentary hotel stays and discounts on entertainment at Resorts in Atlantic City, expedited withdrawals and other exclusive offers.
On the whole, the loyalty program is mostly geared toward high rollers and not of huge benefit to casual players sticking to lower stakes. That said, getting cash back is always nice, even in small amounts.
The Mohegan Sun Online Casino also offers frequent promotions available to all players. These come in a number of forms.
The site often offers deposit bonuses, especially to players at the higher Stellar Rewards levels.
There are several promotions awarding extra Stellar Points. For instance, by playing a certain slots game on a particular day, players can get 3x the usual Stellar Points.
The site also features regular drawings for gift cards and cash. There are weekly giveaways that players can qualify for just by playing as usual — and even just for logging into their account.
These often involve first entering a bonus code found on MoheganSunCasino.com. Then players earn entries into the drawing for playing during a particular time period — e.g., one entry for every 80 Stellar Points accumulated during a three-day stretch.
Players using the app can who allow push notifications from Mohegan Sun Online Casino can receive notices of new giveaways and promotions. (See below for more about the app.)
Getting an account at Mohegan Sun Online is a fairly straightforward process. First visit the MoheganSunCasino.com website and click the large green “Sign Up!” button on the homepage. Next comes an invitation to enter some personal details to create an account.
You must enter an email address and create a password. The email address is used as the login. After that, you’ll need to provide other information, including:
At this point, you also need to enter any bonus code in order to receive those welcome bonuses described up above. There are boxes to tick agreeing to various terms (all standard), including one verifying that you are at least 21 years of age.
As a final step, users must provide the last four digits of their Social Security number. This is also quite standard among online casinos. It helps the online casino ensure users are who they say they are. All of the personal information not only helps with identity verification but also helps the sites to ensure account security.
The Mohegan Sun Online Casino is accessible via both a web-based browser on a laptop or desktop or a mobile device using an app. The software is provided by NYX Gaming, an experienced company that has powered real money sites for over 200 casinos in Europe, Asia and the Americas.
The site is very reliable and runs smoothly. The high quality graphics and sound provide a genuinely immersive experience for users. NYX’s platform is also compatible with the products of all of the industry’s big names like IGT, Aristocrat, NetEnt, SG Gaming and Williams Gaming. That compatibility translates into an especially large and eclectic mix of games on the site, one of its most attractive features.
The site design is intuitive, with the different categories of games lined up along the side. There are slots, table games, video poker, live dealer games and a category called Slingo games. There is also a “featured” section where players can find the most popular games all collected. Within each section, you can view games according to popularity or alphabetically, and you can search for titles, as well.
Many (not all) of the games can be played as a “demo” for play money so you can try the games out for free.
You can access the desktop client using a PC or Mac via all the most popular browsers, including Chrome, Safari, Firefox and Explorer. The games use Flash and thus you might need to update your browser to play the games.
You also will need to install a geolocation plug-in to play real money games on the site. The plug-in is typically automatically downloaded and installed when you first launch a real money game. You might need to enable pop-ups for it to work, and also to enable the plug-in.
With the app, geolocation works automatically as long as the user has allowed the app to use location services.
Mohegan Sun Online Casino is among the best New Jersey online casinos when it comes to game selection. The site offers a tremendous variety and is adding new titles on a near-constant basis.
Slots are where Mohegan Sun shines brightest, with more than 250 slots titles.
The slots are visually striking and feature high-quality graphics. There are many examples of all the popular and familiar slots formats found in retail casinos. These include five-reel slots with 20 paylines, three-reel slots, expanding reel slots, slots with hundreds of paylines and more.
Popular slots titles include:
There are more than two dozen table games available at Mohegan Sun as well, including multiple varieties of blackjack, roulette, baccarat and various casino poker games like pai gow, Mississippi stud and Ultimate Texas Hold ’em.
Among the blackjack titles are those featuring different numbers of decks as well as varieties with different rules about dealer’s actions. Some offer lower stakes, added side bets and other enjoyable twists.
The roulette selections include both American and European versions. The European version offers better odds with only the single zero, while the American game has the double-zero.
The video poker titles include all of the familiar variants, such as Game King Video Poker, which is really nine games in one, essentially giving you at least a couple of versions of most available games, such as:
It is worth mentioning that video poker titles, played correctly, have some of the best return-to-player (RTP) rates you’ll see. For most slots and table games, RTP ranges between 93% and 97%. However, Jacks or Better video poker has a handsome 99.54% RTP, making it a popular one among knowledgeable players.
Mohegan Sun is among those NJ online casinos which offers live dealer games. It offers no fewer than 14 such products. Blackjack, roulette, three card poker and baccarat are among the offerings. Some games are 24/7, while most are available from 11 a.m. to 3 a.m. each day.
Mohegan Sun also offers a slots-like game called Slingo. As the name suggests, Slingo games combine both slots and some elements of classic bingo games.
Slingo titles like Slingo XXXtreme and Slingo Showdown as well as a couple of dozen others are housed both in the slots category and in a separate section of Slingo games.
For mobile device users, downloading the Mohegan Sun Online Casino app is simple and free. Using your device, you can visit MoheganSunCasino.com and scroll to the bottom of the home screen. There you will see buttons to download the app either for Apple (iOS) or Android.
You don’t need to be in New Jersey to download and install the app. However in order to play any of the real money games, you must be physically located within NJ.
There are a variety of methods both to fund an account at Mohegan Sun Online Casino and to cash out.
Here are the available depositing options with limits noted:
The e-check/ACH option involves enrolling in what Mohegan Sun calls its VIP Preferred program. Once successfully enrolled in the VIP Preferred program, players can deposit and withdraw via that method with ease.
Withdrawal methods include:
When choosing a withdrawal method, you are better off withdrawing the same way you deposited. That usually produces fewer hassles and a faster turnaround. Some withdrawal methods have certain stipulations — e.g., with PayPal, the minimum withdrawal is $100. Check the fine print.
Mohegan Sun Online Casino offers a few options for customer support.
Email support is available at [email protected].
