Mohegan slots tops in New England

CT casino's take almost equals all of Mass. facilities

SLOT MACHINES at the Mohegan Sun casino in Connecticut are going gang-busters.

In August, the casino’s slot revenue was nearly $45.6 million, just $2 million shy of the $47.5 million in slot revenue at all three Massachusetts casinos.

Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut, also led the pack in New England in August in terms of revenue per machine per day, a measure that allows one casino to be compared to another even if they have a different number of machines.
