Connecticut tribes report some growth in slot machine revenues
Tuesday, November 16, 2010
Connecticut's two federally recognized tribes appear to be slowly recovering from their lengthy slump in gaming revenues.
The Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation reported $57.2 million in slot machine revenue for October. That's up from 2 percent in September and up 4.5 percent from October 2009.
The Mohegan Tribe reported $60.3 million in slot revenue. That's up 4.7 percent from September but still down 4 percent from October 2009.
"We're pleased with October's results, but given that the economy as a whole still appears to be relatively weak, we remain vigilant and focused on providing the best entertainment value for our customers," a Mashantucket gaming executive said in a statement, The New London Day reported.
