Nearer to New York, taxes and revenue are down at casinos in Pennsylvania and in Connecticut, where the Pequot tribe, owners of Foxwoods, stopped paying every adult member a $100,000 yearly stipend in 2012.

more interesting is who was actually getting the money.

Article says before bingo there was 1 member living on reservation. With the new income they allowed people to move into the reservation if the 1900 census said they were part Pequot.
