Since You're Short on Cash, Try a Smaller Slot

Connecticut's two casinos are hoping to make some cash in these tough economic times.  Foxwoods Casino and the Mohegan Sun have begun marketing themselves to budget-minded gamblers.

The resorts are doing everything from adding more nickel and penny slots, to adding more low-limit gaming tables to try and lure people in.

Mohegan Sun has brought back $5 blackjack tables for the first time in years.

The casino floors aren't the only places to find the discounts either.  Both resorts are offering hotel rooms at reduced rates, some as low as $99 a night.

Foxwoods is trying to entice potential guests by packaging several amenities into one, including a package that includes dinner for two, admission to the spa, and a hotel room all for between $116 and $186.

"We're more cognizant than ever of the need to provide great value for the entertainment dollar. We're focusing on three things: providing great value, better than in Atlantic City; great customer service; and providing more entertainment, more promotions," Joe Jimenez, Foxwoods' senior vice president of marketing told The Day of New London.

Both Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun have seen a reduction in revenue in the past few months.
