While the fact that Mohegan Sun had less than stellar profits this quarter is nothing that wasn’t expected, where they lost profits is: the blackjack and other table games. The casino estimates the hold percentage was only around eleven percent compared to the average of sixteen percent.
Combined with the drop in slots due to economic hardships there was an overall eleven percent drop in income. On the list of possibilities for the lower hold percentage in table games are an increase in high rollers and a string of lucky wins. With bigger bets being laid, a couple of wins throws the average out the window.
