Regulators To Begin Deliberations On Greater Boston Casino License
The Massachusetts Gaming Commission will meet Monday to consider issuing a license for a casino in greater Boston.
The gambling industry regulators have completed an exhaustive review of the two competing casino proposals and have suggested changes to both projects. Mohegan Sun and Wynn Resorts will respond to the commission’s suggestions by the end of this week. Acting chairman James McHugh said there will be a public discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of each proposal.
" The four of us will deliberate between the two proposals, and I think the deliberations are going to be very interesting," McHugh said in a video posted on the commission's website to explain the process for awarding the casino license. " These are very competitive proposals. A lot of work has gone into them, a lot of analysis has gone into them," he added.
The gaming commission earlier awarded a slots parlor license in Southeastern Massachusetts, and assigned a resort casino license to MGM in Springfield. The greater Boston license is considered the most lucrative.
