The Mohegan Tribe of Connecticut reported a decline in revenue and profit at its gaming enterprise.

Net revenue for the first quarter was $312.8 million, the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority said. That was a 3.7 percent drop from the same quarter a year ago.

Profits were reported to be $33.3 million. That represents a 36 percent decline from a year ago.

“Obviously, we would have preferred more normalized table game hold and thus better operating results at Mohegan Sun for the first quarter,” MTGA CEO Mitchell Grossinger Etess said in a press release. “However, we are very encouraged by recent volume trends, as well as our other significant accomplishments during the quarter, which should position us to improve our operating results moving forward.”

One reason why profits took a hit was the tribe's pursuit of a commercial casino in Massachusetts.
