This past year, however, the Connecticut Lottery exceeded casino revenues by 5.3%. The state of Connecticut boasts two tribal casinos. Foxwoods Resort Casino is the largest resort casino in North America and boasts being one of the most popular along the Eastern United States. The Mohegan Sun casino is run by the Mohegan Tribe of Connecticut, and boasts three world class casinos. This year, the state lottery was able to surpass the revenue gathered from both casinos. This year, the Connecticut Lottery Corp transferred a total $321.1 million to the state General Fund. This exceeded last year’s transfers by approximately $2 million, making a new record for the Connecticut Lottery. The Lottery believes the growth of Powerball and Mega Millions in the past year are a big help in raising the popularity of lotteries.
