Connecticut's two casinos have grown so strong that they threaten to endanger an Atlantic City, N.J. streak of 22 consecutive years of gambling revenue increases.

Atlantic City’s 12 casinos generated revenues of $2.1 billion, a decrease of 1.1 percent from the same period last year.

In Connecticut, where the Indian casinos report slot revenue to state regulators, Mohegan Sun recorded an increase of 14.3 percent over last June to $52.6 million. Foxwoods was up nine percent to $64.5 million.
