Massachusetts Casinos

by Steve Bourie  Learn more about the author 
Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick signed a bill in late 2011 that legalized casinos. The law allows three casinos, in three different geographic regions, plus one slot parlor.
As of August 2014, the slot parlor location had been chosen, Plainridge Race Course, a harness racing track located about 35 miles southwest of Boston. The Plainridge Park Casino is currently under construction and is expected to open in June 2015.
The first resort-casino license in Region B (Western Massachusetts) was awarded to MGM Springfield on June 13, 2014. The Massachusetts Gaming Commission was expected to award the resort-casino license for Region A (Eastern Massachusetts) by September, 2014. They also expected to award the final resort-casino license for Region C (Southeastern Massachusetts) by Spring, 2015.  Early 2016 is the earliest any of those casino/resorts are expected to open.
