Connecticut-based Mohegan Sun has agreed a partnership with daily fantasy sports (DFS) operator FanDuel to offer customers access to fantasy sports contests.

FanDuel's contests on sports such as American football, basketball, hockey and baseball will be made available to Mohegan Sun's customers via the casino website.

The website already offers free-to-play online casino games to visitors, as well as real-money online gaming for players based in New Jersey.

In addition to DFS cash prizes, Mohegan is also giving players the chance to win casino-specific prizes such as overnight stays, tickets for events and meals at the venue’s restaurants.

"This partnership with our friends at FanDuel allows us to further introduce our Mohegan Sun audience to the online sports arena that has become so popular, and fun to play," Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority president and chief executive Bobby Soper said.
