Foxwoods seeks a financial win with Mass. casino

FoxwoodsHARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut’s Foxwoods Resort Casino is looking to expand next door in Massachusetts.

The operators of the biggest casino in North America are proposing a $1 billion, 300,000-square foot resort off I-495 in Milford, Mass., about 40 miles southwest of Boston. Plans call for more than 4,000 slot machines, dozens of table games and hotel rooms, restaurants and other attractions.

Foxwoods is pressed by stiff competition in the Northeast. It’s seeking new markets and more revenue.

The casino can expect a barrage of questions from Milford officials and residents skeptical about its finances and the impact on traffic, water and sewer systems and police and fire services.

CEO Scott Butera says Foxwoods is on sound financial footing to take on the huge undertaking.
