oxwoods Resort Casino and Mohegan Sun want to become a bit more competitive with casinos in Atlantic City, which can serve alcohol 24 hours a day, as casino revenues decline in the slumping economy.

Lori Potter, a spokeswoman for the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation, said Tuesday that the tribe, which operates Foxwoods, has been talking with state officials about extending drinking hours.
