Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun casino have both reported that their slot machine revenues fell significantly in the month of May.
When compared to May 2011, Foxwoods casino revenues were down 9.8 percent and Mohegan Sun saw a 9.1 decrease.
These numbers are a slight improvement from April, when both Connecticut casinos saw their slots “win” — the amount of wagers the casino keeps — drop by more than 10 percent.
“Weak and uncertain economic conditions continue to impact our customers and our slot business,” said Foxwoods’ president and chief executive officer Scott Butera in a statement.
Foxwoods officials hope the casino’s summer entertainment line up, which includes Jerry Seinfeld, Kenny Rogers and Boyz II Men, will help boost business.
