Foxwoods sees uptick in slot revenue

20 March 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Foxwoods Resort Casino has reported slot revenue of $37.1 million for the month of February 2018. This figure is up 8.3% compared to $34.3 million in February of 2017. Handle for the month was $445.9 million, up 0.5% from the $443.8 million wagered in the same month in 2017.

Since 1993, the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation has infused over $4 billion of Foxwoods' slot revenue into the Connecticut state economy through the Mashantucket Pequot Fund, supporting much-needed programs and services throughout Connecticut. Foxwoods' contribution to the state in February 2018 is $9.3 million.

February was a special month for Foxwoods as the resort casino celebrated its 26th anniversary. The festivities included a cake cutting ceremony complete with entertainment from the Mashantucket Pequot Honor Guard, Flag Song Performers and the Mashantucket Pequot Dance Troupe. Attendees received exciting prizes including Foxwoods gift cards and luxurious overnight stays at Foxwoods' award-winning hotels.

The winning at Foxwoods continued thanks to the Luxe Vegas $100,000 Giveaway. Twenty lucky Foxwoods Rewards members received dream Vegas getaways including round-trip airfare, limo transportation, food and beverage credits and complimentary four-night stays at Caesars Palace.

February's diverse slate of world-class entertainers included country superstar Chris Young; Grammy-nominated rock trio The Record Company; comedy icon, the "Queen of Mean" Lisa Lampanelli; and Irish dance phenomenon Riverdance.

Foxwoods is the premier gaming destination for those who want to play and win and through 29 March, Foxwoods Rewards members can enter the $135,000 Deal of a Lifetime Blackjack Tournament. Seven lucky winners will get the chance to play in an exclusive blackjack tournament with $35,000 in cash prizes on the line. The same guests will then play a single high-stakes hand of blackjack, where an ace and jack of spades blackjack results in an instant $100,000 cash grand prize.

On 22 March, the iconic Budweiser Clydesdales are set to make a rare appearance on property. Adults and children alike will love the equine parade, which kicks off at 5 p.m. outside of the Grand Pequot Tower. Get your cameras ready to capture this one-of-a-kind moment.
