onnecticut’s two casinos have both reported another monthly drop in slot-machine revenue.
The Mohegan Sun reported its January take was $40.7 million, 9.4 percent less than it was the same month a year ago. That is its lowest monthly slot earning since January 2001, when it kept $39.7 million.
Foxwoods reports $31 million in slots revenue last month, an 8.5 percent decline from the same month a year ago and its lowest one-month total in 25 years.
The Connecticut casinos are facing increased competition, including from MGM Resorts‘ new casino in Springfield, Massachusetts, which opened its doors last August.
