New Bedford Casino Proposal Good – For Now

Could Circumstances Eventually Bring No Casino to Region C?

Developers proposing a Foxwoods casino for the city’s waterfront have met a critical deadline set by gambling regulators, according to the Massachusetts Gaming Commission.

KG Urban Enterprises submitted the requested documents by Tuesday’s deadline as it seeks to win the state’s third and final resort casino license. Wynn and MGM hold the other two licenses while Plainridge Park Casino, a slots-only facility, opens June 24th, only 13 days away.

The commission will be reviewing the documents as part of the process before being released publicly.

The New Bedford proposal, which city residents will vote on June 23, will be discussed at the commission’s Thursday meeting.

So, it is still  a two horse race for the Region C license as far as we know.  KG Urban, of New York, is competing with Mass Gaming & Entertainment for a casino license reserved for the state’s southeastern region. Mass Gaming & Entertainment proposes a resort for the fairgrounds in Brockton, Massachusetts.

That’s all for now.
