Just because Twin River Casino, Newport Grand in Rhode Island and Oxford in Maine don’t have a casino on the property, they have made partnerships with the local hotel industry. Plainridge Park Casino in Plainville, MA is no exception.
While hotels are being planned for Twin River and Oxford Casinos, there will be none in Plainridge Park Casino’s future. If Newport gets permission from Tiverton to move their casino to their fine city, complete with a hotel, Plainridge will be the only casino in New England to not have a hotel connected. The other Massachusetts Casinos – Wynn Boston Harbor, MGM Springfield & the Wampanoag First Light – will be completed with hotels.
Plainridge has many hotel options locally. Discounts are subject to change and you must present your Marquee Rewards card for discounts. Of course, it’s based on availability at the management’s discretion and additional restrictions may apply, so call before you go. Continue reading →
2 Casinos in New England – Bangor, Maine & Plainville, Massachusetts
Penn National Gaming, who owns Plainridge Park Casino & Raceway in Plainville, Massachusetts & Hollywood Casino, Hotel & Raceway in Bangor, Maine are ramping up its image with increased and improved promotions. The promotions are many and interesting. Hollywood alone shows more media connections by offering patrons daily emails of news and promos.
Hollywood Casino, Maine
Before the Massachusetts expansion, Hollywood’s Bangor Casino seemed to be riding the tide of being the only hotel/casino in the area, with Twin River Casino in Rhode Island the closest competitor. But with competition from Oxford Casino in Oxford, Maine and Massachusetts, things needed to get serious. Hollywood’s website and media effort seemed almost like an afterthought – until the last few months.
Now, Penn Gaming is raising the bar in entertainment, dining, and gambling promotions to get you – yes YOU – in the door.
Penn National Gaming, through its subsidiaries, owns, operates or has ownership interests in gaming and racing facilities with a focus on slot machine entertainment. The Company presently operates twenty-six facilities in seventeen jurisdictions, including Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, West Virginia, and Ontario.

The company traces its roots to Penn National Race Course, which opened in 1972. As recent as April 2015, the company agreed to purchase the Tropicana for $360 million to gets it’s first pretense on the Las Vegas Strip.
Plainridge has shown success beyond the Bay State’s dreams. It’s location, newness, and continued push through social media continues to impress – not resting on its summer laurels. And now, Penn it starting the same social media barrage in Maine – a very needed addition to raise Hollywood in Bangor out of its roller coaster revenue ride.
If you check out the two casino websites, you will find expanded promotions schedules, racing schedules, login ability to check your Marquee Rewards, and more. Entertainment schedules are still included, with many different options through out the week, especially in Plainville.

So, click on the side bar links and get to know Penn’s two casinos – the only two casinos in New England linked by the same rewards club! And take a weekend this autumn to drive to Hollywood if you live in southern New England. The hotel is nice, Bangor is a great little town, the foliage should be awesome (don’t wait too long) and check out the Casino.
The fact that Plainridge Park Casino in Plainville, Massachusetts is a success right now shouldn’t surprise anyone. It’s new, it’s shiny and happens to be in a state where gamblers have traveled up to two hours for daily visits to Connecticut. The fact that such a nice, new facility is close by for many should definitely attract Bay Staters by the boatloads.
Penn Gaming has worked hard to make this a successful opening, and it stocks on NASDAQ continue to rise, stimulated by the little casino that can. The Massachusetts State Lottery made an estimated $983.5 million in profits and outperformed expectations during the just ended fiscal year – is it possible that having a casino in Plainville and waiting for Wynn and MGM (a long wait by the looks of it now) is stimulating the state’s gambling juices to the drooling point?
