The Big Gamble: Starting Tonight on ABC40

(WGGB) — It’s the big gamble. Can an $800 million dollar casino breathe new life into the Western Mass. economy?

ABC40 is working to get you answers.

Our own Brendan Monahan traveled to Mohegan Sun in Connecticut, then to casino sites in Pittsburgh and Cincinnati to see what those communities have learned and what advice they may have for cities and towns in our area.

We’ll find out how those projects impacted everything from business and tourism, to crime and neighborhoods.

We’ll also take a closer look at different designs to see what might work best here in Western Massachusetts.

It’s “The Big Gamble” – a week long series – begins tonight at 6:00 p.m. on ABC40.
