The Norwich Bulletin reports that slot machine revenue at Eastern Connecticut casinos fell for the ninth consecutive month in September as a weak job market, high gas prices and increased competition continued to take their toll.
The Bulletin states that Foxwoods Resort Casino & MGM Grand at Foxwoods reported a 13 percent revenue decline to $46.3 million from $53.2 million in September 2011 while Mohegan Sun reported an 8.5 percent drop to $54.7 million from $59.8 million for the span.
Mohegan Sun gave $13.7 million to the Connecticut state government for September as per revenue-sharing agreements while Foxwoods contributed $11.8 million, the Bulletin reports.
