“Other properties may be able to offer convenience, but that’s just one box to check,” said Foxwoods president and chief executive Scott Butera.

Along with upgrading parts of the $3 billion Connecticut casino complex, Foxwoods will also be opening a “premium outlet retail mall” with about 75 stores. Groud breaking on the retail area will happen in spring of next year and both projects are expected to be completed before casinos in Massachusetts are competed.

Massachusetts casinos are expected to be up and running by 2016 and the state is expected to license up to three casino resorts and one slot parlor.
