Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods Resort Casino on Friday reported year-over-year increases in January slots revenue, bouncing back from double-digit declines in December.

Mohegan Sun posted $43.8 million in slots “win,” a 7.6% increase over the $40.7 million it kept after paying out prizes in January 2019. Foxwoods kept $32.5 million, a 4.6% increase over the $31 million it kept a year earlier.

Slots “handle” — the total amount wagered — was up at both casinos, too. Mohegan Sun accepted $529 million in bets, an increase of 5.5% while Foxwoods’ handle was $401.6 million, a 6% increase.

Mohegan Sun sent nearly $11 million of its win to the state. Foxwoods contributed $8.3 million.
