HARTFORD, Conn.—Connecticut's two Indian-run casinos reported sharp declines in revenue for May that a state official said is due to the weak economy and increasing competition for gamblers' dollars.

Foxwoods Resort Casino, operated by the Mashantucket Pequots, said Tuesday its revenue in May was $56.4 million, down 9.4 percent from May 2009.

The Mohegan Sun said its revenue in May was $65 million, down 7 percent from May 2009.

Paul Young, executive director of the state Division of Special Revenue, said the weak economy has reduced consumer spending and gamblers have more choices with slot machine parlors in Rhode Island and New York.
