New England Casino Awards Next Week! – Presented by

2017 NEW ENGLAND CASINO AWARDSnetime-logo NECAStart thinking and get ready to rate New England’s Casinos!

This is the time of year that awards are given out.  The Casino industry is no different. Its “best awards” are handed out nationally – for example, Casino Player gives awards for every area of the country, including tribal casinos.

Casino regions in the country also give out awards. One of the best ratings for anyone who frequents Las Vegas is a website and podcast by VegasTripping, an unbelievably honest and insightful group who includes a popular vote and the editors’ choices. Their VT awards include the best AND the worst, something most don’t include. Their staggering amount of categories (hotels, dining, entertainment, gambling) represents what’s happening with the on-Strip, off-Strip, and Downtown casinos. The “Trippies” also cover Technology, podcasts, pet peeves, news of the year….well, you get it.  If there’s something to cover in and about Las Vegas, VegasTripping does it, and has done it well for years.

So, I figured, why not the best in New England?  In a few years, we may double the number of casinos with the likes of Wynn and MGM, so why no start the
