11 Developers Apply For Massachusetts Gaming Licenses

Christopher Chappelear

Eleven applications were filed for gaming licenses in Massachusetts by Tuesday night’s deadline.

   In announcing the applicants, Massachusetts Gaming Commission Chairman Steve Crosby said the state is assured of robust competition to maximize  job creation and tax revenue.

   Four companies filed by the deadline to compete for the lone resort casino license in western Massachusetts.  At least three companies will compete to build a casino in eastern Massachusetts.  There were two applicants that did not identify a site for a project and two applying for the slots parlor licnese.  Each application came with a $400,000 non refundable fee to cover the cost of background investigations, which will begin immediately.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
