MASHANTUCKET, Connecticut -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- November slot revenue at Foxwoods Resort Casino was up 2.1 percent from a year ago, improving to $43.9 million from the $43.0 million reported last year. Handle for the month was $510.0 million, off 2.1 percent from the $521.0 million wagered in November 2012.
Foxwoods’ contribution to the Connecticut Special Revenue Fund this month was $11.0 million, bringing the cumulative contribution to the State since Foxwoods opened in 1992 to more than $3.56 billion.
With jingle bells ringing all across the resort, there is still time to get tickets for The Mystic Ballet’s performances of the Nutcracker Spectacular at Fox Theater on December 21 and 22.
And there is simply nothing like the Foxwoods Rink & Winter Patio, a winter wonderland that is magic for “kids” of all ages. Open seven days a week, this family friendly attraction features an ice skating rink surrounded by trees with over 100,000 twinkling lights. There are also huge fire pits for roasting smores and a 30-foot Christmas tree with dazzling larger-than-life ornaments. Saturdays and Sundays before Christmas, the Rink features a chance to “Skate with Santa.”
Holiday week festivities will feature wildly popular artist Pitbull on December 27; and on December 27-28 in the Fox Theater, Broadway Rox offers its rousing theatrical presentation of greatest hits from some of Broadway’s most memorable shows.
Of course, the Resort is also making preparations for the other kind of ringing … as in ringing in the New Year. This year’s party is Miami Style! with steel drums, DJs, bars, cigars, great party favors, contests and roaming entertainment on our Concourse straight from the jungle!
New Year’s Eve features the Comix Countdown; the Shrine Celebration with DJ JD & Vinny Vibe, the hottest party in New England; and the High Rollers Party with music by John Cardona. Tickets purchased in advance guarantee places at the center of all the action.
At the Mashantucket Pequot Museum and Research Center, Native New England Now continues through January 4. The Center will also help visitors forget about the cold and snow with a Winter Warm-up from Hawaii, a virtual journey through the 50th state’s past and present with dance and storytelling.
