New Findings From UMass Amherst Research Into Gambling


     Out-of-state casino gambling declined significantly after Massachusetts opened its first casino in the summer of 2015.

    That is one of the findings released recently from an on-going major study by the University of Massachusetts Amherst on the impacts of casino gambling in the state.

    The research, commissioned by the Massachusetts Gaming Commission, is being led by UMass Amherst professor Rachel Volberg.

    She spoke about the new report with WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill.

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.
