Foxwoods Resort Casino reports slot revenue for June

15 July 2020

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Foxwoods Resort Casino has reported slot revenue of $33.6 million for the month of June 2020. This figure is down 4.9% compared to $35.3 million in June of 2019. Slot handle for the month was $377.1 million, down 13.5% from the $436.1 million wagered in the same month in 2019.

As per the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation’s agreement with the state of Connecticut, they have also contributed $8.4 million to the state’s Mashantucket Pequot Fund for June, which supports much-needed programs and services throughout the state. The Tribe contributed $9 million in June 2019.

In addition, the Tribe has brought 2,000 furloughed employees back to work, a welcome development in eastern Connecticut, where some of the highest rates of unemployment in the COVID shutdown were reported.

“We are really pleased that after a careful, phased-in reopening, with significant new health and safety protocols and limited capacity, that business is so strong,” Tribal Chairman Rodney Butler said. “We are glad to be open and helping with the rebuilding of Connecticut’s economy.”

Butler said Foxwoods remains committed to ensuring that the resort is operating safely for both visitors and staff and will continue to work with medical experts to evaluate and update as needed. To date, visitors have been more than willing to have their temperature checked at the door, wear masks, practice social distancing and liberally use hand sanitizer readily available throughout the property.

Since 1993, the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation has infused over $4 billion of Foxwoods’ slot revenue into the Connecticut state economy.
