The game of craps has an immense lexicon of lingo, from "snake-eyes," which means rolling a two, to "boxcars," which means betting your freight train. Go on a roll with today's Groupon: for $59, you get an all-inclusive casino day and evening trip, including a motor-coach to and from Mohegan Sun (a $40 value), gratuities for the driver and trip leader (a $10 value), a concert at the Wolf Den (a $10 value), a $20 gaming credit, a $5 drink credit at Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville, dinner (a $20 value), plus a $15 discount at the spa and health club (a $125 total value). This package is organized by Golf 'n Gamble. Choose from the following dates:
• Saturday, July 16
• Saturday, July 23
• Saturday, August 13
• Saturday, August 27
• Saturday, September 17
• Saturday, October 1
Golf 'n Gamble's team of adventurers plans thrilling forays to casinos and golf courses, including destinations in Atlantic City and the Poconos. Today’s offered trip is highlighted by a five-hour escapade inside Mohegan Sun, a roiling plasma of games, entertainment, and nuclear fusion. Each outing embarks from the Newton Park and Ride at 1:30 p.m. and the Attleboro location at 2 p.m., and returns to the same location at approximately 11 p.m., with beverages and pizza served on the way home. The $20 credit—dispensed in the form of two $10 bets—ups the excitement during slot pulls and blackjack games that would otherwise digress into war. Between bets, guests are welcome to take in a concert at the Wolf Den, which boasts intimate seating and acoustically perfect stalactites.
Once the hunger for adrenaline is replaced with regular hunger, Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville sidles into view with a choice of three entrees. A $5 drink credit grants access to smooth libations on the drink menu, including the LandShark Lager ($5) and the Uptown top-shelf margarita ($9.25). At Mohegan Sun's spa and health club, Groupon holders will also receive a $15 discount on admission (regularly $25), enabling tired thumbs to kick up their tips in the on-site pool or hot tub.
