The New England Casino Picture Paints Many Possibilities

A picture paints a thousand words – so the saying above goes. A recent picture from the Boston Globe Staff creates the unfolding story of the New England Gambling Industry, with multiple endings. Study the picture below before reading on.

Casinos2.r

Besides the placement of working & proposed casinos in New England, this picture shows where the battle lines are drawn, or where loyalty lines may be crossed.

Geographically, potential winners and losers can be expected. Here are some random thoughts concerning the possibilities:

  1. Is it not a wonder that the Massachusetts Gaming Commission is hesitating on issuing the Region C license to Brockton?
  2. The Mashpee Wampanoag building a resort casino so close to Brockton outs Brockton between two big casino projects – Wynn Everett & Taunton.
  3. Penn National’s Plainridge Park could carve its own niche because of the lack of table games.
  4. Moving the Newport Grand to Tiverton with a hotel attached fortifies the Eastern Front for Rhode Island, and bad news for the Massachusetts casino group.
  5. The Addition of a third Connecticut Casino in the Hartford area makes the CT River battle a two horse race – however, the loyalty programs of Foxwoods & Mohegan Sun might keep CT gamblers in-state for the most part.  MGM, however, has a national MLife Rewards program that couls have value east to west.
  6. Entertainment venues are far enough apart not to compete.  Twin River, Foxwoods, Mohegan Sun, MGM Springfield and Wynn Everett probably won’t get in the way of each other concerning concert & club venues.
  7. If Maine can’t stabilize it’s two casinos so far away from southern New England, they definitely don’t need a third.

Finally, and the most important part, is the number of possible gambling option in Southern New England should cause fierce competition.  And guess who the biggest winner should be?

Well, the gambling consumer, of course.

That’s all for now.
