Casino Business Back After Irene-Related Lull

UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut’s casinos saw a drop in weekend business as a result of Tropical Storm Irene, but the chief executive at Mohegan Sun says customers are back looking for a place to eat and something to do.

Jeff Hartmann tells the Norwich Bulletin  that slot revenues will be impacted because many weekend gamblers stayed home to ride out the storm.

But he says business has been brisk since the storm. Hartmann notes that he is one of those who has turned to the casino’s restaurants for meals after losing power at home.

Both Mohegan Sun and the Foxwoods Resort Casino stayed open during Irene.
