July Slot Winnings Funnel $40 Million to State Coffers

16 August 2005

Las Vegas Sun

HARTFORD, Connecticut -- The state has received more than $40 million from July slot winnings at Connecticut's two American Indian-run casinos.

Foxwoods Resort Casino reported about $80.1 million in slot revenue for July, the casino's highest-ever one-month take. The previous record was $77.6 million, set in July of last year.

Mohegan Sun also took in about $80.1 million in slot revenue in July. The casinos each contributed about $20 million to the state.

An average of 7,417 slot machines were in play each day at Foxwoods, run by the Mashantucket Pequots, compared with 6,205 at Mohegan Sun, run by the Mohegan tribe.

The casinos operate under agreements with the state that require them to pay a quarter of their slot machine revenues monthly.
