Casino Ship Coming to Lynn

Gambling2

LYNN, Mass. (AP) — While the state gambling commission wrestles with where to put casinos on land, a floating casino is expected to be sailing out of Lynn as early as May.

Lynn native James Walsh says he is bringing the 225-foot Aquasino to the city to make twice daily excursions to federal waters where gambling is permitted.

He says the boat with a capacity for 600 passengers will offer roulette, poker, a restaurant, and entertainment, including comedy shows. He tells The Daily Item he may even host weddings.

The ship will sail from the Economic Development and Industrial Corp. pier.

Walsh plans to hire 155 employees.

A casino ship last operated out of Lynn in 2009.
