Connecticut: Slide in casinos’ slots revenue got steeper in November

Casino slot-machine revenues tanked in November, falling to levels not seen since the 1990s.

Foxwoods Resort Casino kept $21.8 million after paying out prizes, a 43.7% decline from the $36.6 million it kept the previous November. Mohegan Sun kept $28.5 million, down 37.7% from $45.8 million a year ago.

“It’s all pandemic-related,” Jeff Hamilton, Mohegan Sun’s president and general manager, said Tuesday.

While the casinos’ revenues had fallen off precipitously since the casinos reopened June 1 following coronavirus-induced shutdowns, the November year-over-year comparisons are the starkest of any month since then.
