UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) — The chief executive of the tribal authority that runs the Mohegan Sun says it could seek a deal with rival Foxwoods Resort Casino to build a third Connecticut casino near the Massachusetts line to compete with casinos opening in the Bay State.
Mitchell Etess, chief executive officer of the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority, told The Day of New London it's "very easy" to see a solution drawn up by the Connecticut legislature.
Falling revenue at both casinos has cut state revnue, accounting for 25 percent of slot machine money.
Casinos licensed for Springfield and Boston and possibly a third in southeastern Massachusetts are expected to hammer revenue at Connecticut's already-struggling casinos.
The newspaper said Rodney Butler, chairman of the Mashantucket tribe that runs Foxwoods, and legislative leaders were not available for comment.
