UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) – Connecticut's two casinos have both reported another monthly decline in slot machine revenue.
This is the seventh straight month that the slot package has fallen on both Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods Resort Casino.
The Mohegan Sun reported that it was January of $ 40.7 million, 9.4 percent less than it was the same month a year ago. It is the lowest monthly gaming earnings since January 2001 when it held $ 39.7 million.
Foxwoods reports $ 31 million in slot revenue last month, a decline of 8.5 percent from the same month a year ago and the lowest month in total for 25 years.
Connecticut casinos face increased competition, including from MGM Resort's new casino in Springfield, Massachusetts, which opened its doors this August.
