Revenues Continue to Dip for MGM Springfield’s 3rd Month Open

Gambling revenues have dropped at MGM Springfield in the third month of operation at Massachusetts' first resort casino.

The state Gaming Commission reported Monday the casino near Connecticut generated $21 million in revenues from gambling in November, down from October's $22 million and September's $27 million.

MGM Springfield President Michael Mathis said the company is pleased with the casino's "overall performance" and that November represented "another solid month" for the property, which also generates revenues from restaurants, bars, a hotel and other attractions.

Regulators also reported Monday that Massachusetts' other casino, Plainridge Park, saw another month of gambling revenue declines.

The slots parlor and horse racing track near Rhode Island generated $12.8 million in November, down from October's $13.5 million and September's $14.3 million.

A casino spokesman didn't immediately comment.
