Slot Revenue Up at Foxwoods, Down at Mohegan Sun
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut’s two tribal-owned casinos have released data showing slot-machine revenue rose slightly in February at the Foxwoods Resort Casino but declined at Mohegan Sun.
The share of wagers kept by the casino, also known as revenue, was $39.3 million at Foxwoods. That marks an increase of 2 percent compared with the same month a year ago.
Foxwoods CEO Scott Butera said Friday the February 2012 figures were affected by a major blizzard but the latest data reflects a positive step and continued consistency.
Revenue at Mohegan Sun was $43.9 million, which was down 3 percent compared with the same month a year ago.
The casinos, which contribute 25 percent of their slot revenue to the state of Connecticut, have been struggling to reverse a slump related to the weak economic recovery and growing competition.
