Foxwoods to cut hours at Rainmaker Casino


Foxwoods Casino will be cutting hours at one of its six casinos on its campus.

Rainmaker Casino will be closed from 4 a.m. on Mondays until 9 a.m. on Fridays beginning June 9, 2014.

Foxwoods CEO Scott Butera said in a statement "the modification to the hours of operation of a small portion of our gaming floor is a function of our ongoing effort to improve operational efficiency during lower-volume periods."

Pressure has increased as additional states have allowed casino type gaming.

The impact on jobs at this point is not known. Butera said "it will be necessary to the health of the organization to review and adjust our staffing levels based on a solid strategic plan with a goal of supporting strong employment levels for years to come."
