Mohegan Sun Gambling Revenues Fall

Connecticut's Mohegan Indians, along with state coffers, continue to make steadily less money from gambling as consumers hurt and scared by the recession spend less on slot machines and table games. Full Story

Well if you people were not so GREEDY maybe there would be more people playing. You've adjusted those machines so tight that no one wins. You loose because of your Greed. I stopped going. I was going to start sending you a check in the mail so I could save on the Gas money.

Wanna increase the revenue...increase the payouts. The more people win, the more people show up.

I have an idea....why don't you let some of the seniors on the buses win? Us kids need to inherit somethin! You are NOT thinking of us at all. If we are not left any money...we won't be visiting you. Think about that!

I stopped going nearly as much as I used to. Starting about 4 years ago, they just turned the screws to the point where the machines aren't any fun to play. Loosen them up and I'll go back, but I don't see that happening any time soon..

They are breaking my heart- American's lose their earnings and pensions and they are supposed to gamble- get serious - there would be no problems if our Representatives had any brains, but few do. Nafta Free Trade has has nothing to do about creating American jobs and everything about eliminating American jobs by allowing Communist Red China to control all our markets and saturate our country with over 15,000 containers every four days - with their poisonous foods, medicines, chemical laced baby/ milk products - cheap sweat shop textiles and clothing at highway robbery price4s - sold by WalMart Stores that is a cancer in our country as they have driven thousand of businesses out of business - and by that American's have lost millions of jobs. Tell the tribe to work for a living., instead of thinking American's should throw their money away. Maybe they should tell Obama to dismantle Nafta and put American's back to work??

Close the casinos and maybe people will actually use their money wisely instead of throwing it away on slots!

I'm just sort of "over it" with the casinos. We used to go once a month, when they first opened, but now we only go if there is a concert or show we want to see. When we go for a show, we don't spend that much time in the casino, but we really do appreciate the variety of restaurants. The novelty of a casino wore off. Maybe if they started giving more free bees again, it would lure us back more often. We were in Las Vegas for a trade show last year and spent time in the casinos there, But Vegas is more of a destination than the Connecticut casinos. But even then. How often are we in Vegas. If we didn't have another reason to be in Las Vegas , we would not just be there for the gambling. If they ever open casinos in Massachusetts, Fox Woods and Mohegan will go bankrupt.

The revenue losses will be made up by the increased alcohol taxes paid by elected Democrats.

What few people realize anymore is that we are a Supply and Demand/ Fair Trade Country and not a Free Trade Country. Now is the time for all American's to tell their representatives / Washington to really address our True Economy - that fuels jobs - Our Industrials- Manufacturing- American Auto/ Truck Manufacturing - which all come u7nder the heading of The Dow Jones Industrial - where most pensions are invested. By buying American Products American's can help themselves , their country, and even the tribe at the Casino's - but each step must be applied to help the other step- and our representatives must dismantle Nafta Free Trade and take back our markets from Red China.... otherwise the next step is a Depression with no way out because only manufacturing can pull us out of a depression......

Bailouts and the reason for them was a process started by Democrats - who went along with George H.W. Bush - a Republican , with the treaty Nafta / Free Trade rammed through Congress in 1993- also Fannie Mae/ Freddie Mac -in 1995 by the same Democrat and mishandled by Democrat Community Organizers Obama's and Acorn that demanded and forced into law by attacking the banks and calling them racists - until they gave out $$$billions in bad loans to people that didn't have jobs or earned too little or were illegal immigrants or they sold investments overseas to people that thought the deals were good, but were put together as scams - overvalued at best- When the banks showed no profits only losses because of bad business practices and no down payments required on any of the loans - and default was the order of the day- there were big problems - No business should be conducted like the Real estate fiasco and should never again- the warnings were there for the last seven years all ignored by Democrats - including Obama - so if the Casino's are hard pressed tell them to contact their representatives and dismantle Nafta - bolster our Industrials and before all the money is paid out in bailouts insure that better business practices are in force.

I contribute a lot of the loss to the lack of comps, that the greedy CEO's didn't want to hand out.
In the past, I would play (and usually lose, but would indulge in the handful of things they used to offer).
Now, when I win (and, others that I play with say the same thing), I am out the door.
Loosen up on the comps, and I might have a reason to return.

You are entirely right, the machines are tightened up, both casinos are this way.

The time is now for all American's to become involved with their government. Tell their Representatives what they expect of them . Otherwise they will continue to ignore you and do for you what they always do....... nothing ! Your representatives have offices in Washington/your state and your state capitol has booklets with these addresses that have email addresses - mailing addresses- phone #'s - get in touch with them and tell them what you and other people need- it is your right - to police all of your representatives - you elected them and sent them to Washington to work for you - so tell them they need to start working for you - dismantle Nafta Free Trade and put American's and America back to work- they have to listen to you - Tell Congress to dismantle all H-1 and H-2 Visa Work Programs for Illegal Immigrants . American's should be hired first- not last or not at all- tell Harry Reid - Perlosi- Chris Dodd- Christopher Murphy.

The Injuns want more wampum - tough- Let more working class win some bucks too.. the high rollers get a room with a view- champaign - dinner- entertainment and free chips - have a raffle five times a day with $50,000.00- a few American cars and Ford - Chevy - Dodge Ram trucks - fully equipped and a cash bonus of $20,000.00 several times a week - as a bonus for playing - loosen up and we'll come back - not enough winners only losers . Put some trips together or dinner at Red Lobster for a family- or Bertucci's . The injuns have to use their noggins - you get more with honey than you get with salt or vinegar......... We want wampun too............
