Connecticut's 2 Casinos Report Weak Slots Revenue, Bets In May

Connecticut's two tribal casinos reported flat or declining slot machine revenue and reduced slot machine bets in May.

Foxwoods Resort Casino reported slot machine revenue of $43.2 million, down by about $500,000, or 1.2 percent from the same month last year.

Slot machine bets of $532 million declined 1.8 percent from May 2014.

The Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority, which operates the Mohegan Sun, reported slot revenue of $51.7 million, up a scant $17,000 from May 2014, or essentially flat. Slot machine bets of $621.7 million were down from $637.1 million in the same month last year.

The two casinos continue to struggle with a long-running slide in revenue as gamblers seek numerous alternatives in the Northeast.

Massachusetts' lone slots parlor, in Plainville, is set to open June 24.
