MGM Springfield revenues dropped in November, but the casino is still bringing in tens of millions of dollars.
The state Gaming Commission reported Monday that MGM generated $21 million in November, their third month of operation. That’s down $1 million from October.
At Mohegan Sun in Connecticut, the casino reported a 5.6 percent drop in slot revenue compared to November of last year. According to a Mohegan Sun breakdown of last month’s revenues, they considered the decline “modest” given new regional competition.
One Springfield resident said $21 million still marks a significant amount of revenue coming into the city.
“I think that the number is probably good,” George Rosario told 22News. “I feel it’s still busy down here. It’s brought a lot more of a crowd. I see it a lot more busy.”
MGM Springfield raked in $27 million in their first month of operation in September.
