Slot revenue goes up in September for Foxwoods Resort Casino

15 October 2021

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Foxwoods Resort Casino is reporting slot revenue of $31 million for the month of September 2021. This results in a $7.75 million direct payment to the State of Connecticut in accordance with the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation’s long-standing slot revenue contribution agreement. Since 1993, the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation has deposited over $4.4 billion of Foxwoods’ slot revenue directly into the state’s budget fund.

As part of Foxwoods’ invitation for guests to Live Out Loud, the resort casino hosted Drag Binglo on 18 September -- a night full of glow bingo, fabulous drag queen hosts, and a DJ spinning high-energy hits. Hosted by local Connecticut drag superstars Loosey LaDuca and Natalia Fierce, Drag Binglo provided attendees the chance to win over $30,000 in cash and prizes including concert tickets, surprise giveaways and more.

On 30 September, the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation and DraftKings, Inc. launched retail sports betting at Foxwoods. Players are now able to place bets at the temporary DraftKings Sportsbook at Foxwoods -- located at the Ultimate Race Book in Rainmaker Casino -- in addition to betting kiosks located across the resort. Prior to its opening, Foxwoods hosted two hiring days on 8 September and 14 September to fill a variety of positions including servers, bartenders, restaurant managers and more.

Pack your car full of pillows and cozy blankets and experience family-favorite flicks under the stars at Foxwoods’ Night Out At The Drive-In, through the end of October. Or, fall into Foxwoods’ all-star entertainment lineup including performances by iconic crooner John Legend on 16 October, comedian Chris Distefano on 23 October, an electric ABBA tribute concert on 30 October, and don’t miss rockstar John Fogerty coming up on 13 November.

Later this season, Beerfest returns to Foxwoods on 6 November. This year’s battle of the brews promises live music, games and delicious food for 21+ guests.
