16 March 2019

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Foxwoods Resort Casino has reported slot revenue of $34.2 million for the month of February 2019. This figure is down 8% compared to $37.1 million in February of 2018. Handle for the month was $411.5 million, down 7.7% from the $445.9 million wagered in the same month in 2018.
