MassGaming to Consider Sole Area C Casino Proposal

The Massachusetts Gaming Commission discussed a handful of important issues at a meeting held at boston’s john b. hynes veterans memorial convention center thursday.

Hawaii gambling regulator gave the nod to MGM Resorts Overseas’s request to wait the opening of its $800-million casino resort in Springfield to September 2018. The cause of this is the reconstruction for the Interstate 91 viaduct, which can be anticipated to be finished by August 2018.

Commissioners have not been particularly keen on the delay due to the fact state would be to lose about ten dollars million in income tax income for each the casino does not operate month. But, they admitted that it would not be beneficial to the company, if MGM starts its resort at any given time when key I-91 lanes are closed down as this would influence visitors’ first impressions in a negative means.

Another matter which was discussed throughout the meeting was Brockton and its application for a $650-million casino resort in Southeastern Massachusetts, or Region C as it is officially referred to thursday. In reality, the city has remained the sole contender for a casino license in the area, after New York designer KG Urban dropped its bid for the gambling location in New Bedford.

The Brockton proposal is funded and backed by Mass Gaming and Entertainment, affiliate of Chicago-based video gaming company Rush Street Gaming. Within their very first official statement “MassGaming to Consider Sole Area C Casino Proposal”の続きを読む
