Western Mass. Casino License to be Awarded June 13


BOSTON (WGGB) — It appears we are weeks away from knowing if MGM will be granted a license to open and operate a casino in the Bay State.

At a meeting Friday, the Mass. Gaming Commission discussed that they are aiming to issue the Region B – or western Mass. – casino license on June 13.

MGM Springfield is the only casino company left in contention for a western Mass. resort style casino.

They have proposed an $800 million project for Springfield’s South End.

The Commission anticipates awarding the license for southeastern Mass. in Feburary 2015. It has not yet set a date for the Boston area.
