Connecticut Casinos: Slot Revenue Stable
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – The operators of Connecticut’s two casinos reported stable slot machine revenue in February, collecting almost the same amounts compared with one year ago.
Foxwoods Resort Casino says its revenue was $51.1 million, about 0.9 percent less than February 2010.
Mohegan Sun says its February slot profits were up about $22,000 to $58 million, an increase of less than one-tenth of 1 percent over February 2010.
Both casinos saw their income rebound after a snowy January, in which Mohegan Sun’s revenue was down 12 percent and Foxwoods’ was down nearly 6 percent compared with January 2010.
The Mohegan Sun is located in Uncasville, and is owned by the Mohegan tribe. Foxwoods, based in Mashantucket, is owned by the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation.
