Flash: Mohegan Sun's August Slot Revenue Falls By About 7%

Feather News

It has been reported today that August slot revenues at Mohegan Sun, which includes 2 1/2 days of their new Casino of the Wind figures, fell by about 7 percent.

August 2008 included the Saturday and Sunday of the Labor Day weekend while last year, in 2007, the Labor Day weekend landed entirely in September. Labor Day weekend is traditionally a high-volume weekend but even that extra push, combined with a new casino opening at the end of August, didn't help the Mohegan Sun overcome its continuing slot revenue slide.

Foxwoods reported an increase of slightly over 1 percent in its August slot revenues.
