LEDYARD — While Massachusetts dithers over where to allow casinos, how big they can be, and which moguls will build them, Foxwoods, the first tribal casino in Connecticut, turned 20 this year. Many of the players at Foxwoods and neighboring Mohegan Sun are daytrippers from Boston and New York — each with a favorite casino, a favorite room, and a favorite game or even favorite slot machine.
