Mass. Gambling Commission Rep. to Discuss Slots
PLAINVILLE, Mass. (AP) — A representative from the Massachusetts Gaming Commission heads to Foxborough to talk about whether slot machines should be allowed at a horse track in neighboring Plainville.
The Boston Globe reports that John Ziemba, the gaming commission’s ombudsman, was invited to come to the Foxborough Board of Selectmen to summarize the review and permitting process and answer questions.
The slots license is expected to be issued by year’s end and full casino licenses for the Boston area, western Massachusetts and southeastern Massachusetts are expected to be issued starting next February.
Raynham Park, a former greyhound-racing track 15 miles southeast of Foxborough, has partnered with Greenwood Gaming and Entertainment to also seek a slots permit.
And to the north, PPE Casino Resorts wants to open a 24-hour slots parlor at the Liberty Tree Mall in Danvers.
