Mohegan Sun And Foxwoods About Even On Free Slot Play Promotions For 1st Quarter

Feather News

Both Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun offered about $11 million each in free slot play to select customers during the three months of October through December.

Foxwoods first began offering free slot play in September 2006 and the Mohegan Sun followed suit in November 2007.

The trend of Foxwoods giving its customers more free play than Mohegan Sun has come to an end, at least for now. Mohegan Sun had more free play redeemed at slot machines than Foxwoods for two of the the three months of October through December even though the two casinos ended up spending about $11 million each for the three months.

Foxwoods has significantly reduced its free play when compared to the same three months in 2008. In that 2008 period, Foxwoods had $16 million in free play while the Mohegan Sun recorded $5 million in free play.

Mohegan Sun reported total slot revenue of $180 million during October through December while Foxwoods reported $153 million over these three months.
