Moody's Investors Service said Wednesday that to the extent the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority can improve the performance at Resorts and develop a successful track record in Atlantic City's challenging market, the deal could result in more management contract opportunities.
Moody's said the deal has no impact on the Mohegan authority's ratings.
If approved by regulators, Mohegan will become the first American Indian-run firm to expand into the established gambling destinations of Atlantic City and Las Vegas.
The tribal authority owns and operates casinos in Uncasville and Plains Township, Pa.
