Originally, Foxwoods Resort Casino was a bingo hall.  It was started in 1986 and was financed by Lim Goh Tong but run by the Mashantucket Pequot Indian Tribe on their reservation.  In 1992, the tribe began adding actual casino games and made an agreement with the state of Connecticut to pay a hefty portion of their slot revenue to the state.  Throughout 1995, the casino built and expanded, opening another casino in their complex and making most of Foxwoods Resort Casino smoke free.

In 2005, Foxwoods Resort Casino began another expansion, but entered into an agreement with MGM Grand to lease the brand name for the tower which opened in 2008.  In 2013, the lease was broken and the tower is currently called The Fox Tower.  With the recession in 2007, Foxwoods Resort Casino was hit hard, losing almost four thousand employees, but has been making steady progress towards rebuilding.
