Foxwoods reports May slot revenue

14 June 2013

MASHANTUCKET, Connecticut -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Slot revenue at Foxwoods Resort Casino for May 2013 declined to $48.2 million, 4.4 percent lower than the $50.4 million reported for the same period a year ago. Handle at the resort was $557.9 million, off 5.1 percent from the $587.9 million reported last May.

The Casino contributed $12.2 million to the Connecticut Special Revenue Fund based on its May slot results. The cumulative contribution to the state of Connecticut since Foxwoods opened in 1992 rose to $3.5 billion.
Foxwoods CEO Scott C. Butera said that the Resort’s results have been satisfactory despite continued economic and competitive pressures. He also noted that Foxwoods has launched aggressive steps aimed at expanding its market in the years ahead. The company announced plans to compete for casino licenses in both Massachusetts and New York.
