AKWESASNE MOHAWK CASINO RESORT INSTALLS SLOT MACHINES THAT ACCEPT CANADIAN CURRENCY
The Akwesasne Mohawk Casino Resort is now the second casino in the U.S. to offer slot machines that accept Canadian currency!
Due to declining exchange rates, the casino saw an opportunity to provide added value to the Canadian guests. “Research shows that one casino has already converted some of their slot machines to accept Canadian currency and we wanted to do the same,” states General Manager Shannon Keel. The process involved extensive research and analysis to come to fruition. This added value will be a substantial investment towards showing commitment to our valued Canadian guests. Over 100 slot machines have already been converted to accept Canadian currency and these banks of machines can be located in both smoking and non-smoking sections. “We are anticipating these machines will help alleviate issues with the current exchange rate and allow guests to Play Canadian and Win Canadian on slot machines, as well as table games, bingo and Canadian at par in the hotel.” concludes Keel.
AMCR has exciting changes in other areas of the casino. Cascades Lounge Bar has been expanded. Now you can play even more games, including electronic craps, roulette and blackjack, while enjoying live entertainment and drinks at our Cascades Lounge Bar and new Game Lounge. Listen to live bands and DJ’s every Friday and Saturday night. Plus, play popular arcade games, pool, darts and more.
