Flash: Mohegan Sun's March Slot Revenue Down 2.7%, Foxwoods Down 10.8%

Feather News

Mohegan Sun reported that its March slot revenue decreased by 2.7 percent from the same month last year while Foxwoods' slot revenue declined 10.8 percent.

The amount of free play that both casinos gave out in March has not yet been posted to the state's Division of Special Revenue website. Until we can access the free play figures, any analysis of March's slot revenue would be meaningless.

In February, the Mohegan Sun gave away more than $5.6 million in slot machine free-play promotions while Foxwoods gave out slightly more than $5 million in free slot play. The month of February marked the highest amount of free play promotions ever used at Mohegan Sun in one month but did nonetheless not stop Mohegan's February slot machine revenue from declining by 7.7 percent.
