UNCASVILLE, Conn. (WTIC Radio) - The Mohegan tribe is expanding its gambling empire to Las Vegas

The operator of the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville is entering the nation's most storied city for gambling. Pending regulatory approval, Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment says it will operate a 60,000 square-foot casino at the soon-to-be-completed Virgin Hotels Las Vegas.

The tribe will be the first Native American tribe to have a presence along the casino corridor in Las Vegas.

It's already involved in eight gaming operations, including in Washington State and South Korea.
