NEW YORK, Oct. 13 (UPI) -- Tracy Morgan, Lindsay Price and Cheryl Hines were among those who attended the opening of Mohegan Sun's newest casino, the Connecticut gaming resort said.

Those celebrities -- along with Robert Buckley, Becki Newton, Chris Diamantopoulos, Eric Mabius, Maria Menounos, Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin, Rex Lee, Stacy Keibler, Geoff Stults, Matthew Settle and Jessica Szohr -- were on hand this weekend to play a round of poker to celebrate the addition of Casino of the Wind to the resort.

The festivities also included musical performances by the star-studded Band From TV and "American Idol" runner-up Blake Lewis.

Price unveiled Tiffany & Co.'s and Mohegan Sun's new "high-roller cocktail," the Windfall, the resort said. The cocktail, valued at more than $6,000, includes a Tiffany's diamond and pink sapphire ring garnish.

"We are so proud to have hosted such an exciting weekend of special events to unveil our brand new casino," Bruce Bozsum, chairman of the Mohegan Tribe, said in a statement.
