More Info Expected from Two Mass. Gaming Applicants

Gambling2

BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts may soon learn more about the plans of two late entries into the state’s casino competition.

PPE Casino Resorts and Mass Gaming & Entertainment submitted initial applications along with non-refundable $400,000 application fees to the Massachusetts Gaming Commission just before last Tuesday’s deadline.

Neither firm indicated whether they planned to seek a license for a resort-style casino or a slots parlor.

Gayle Cameron, one of the five gaming commissioners, said she expects a decision by the companies as soon as this week. She said it’s critical to know which applicants are competing for the slots parlor because the panel intends to issue that license first.

It may be longer before we know where the two companies hope to locate a gambling facility. Both say they’re still evaluating potential sites.
