11 groups meet deadline for initial Mass. casino applications

16 January 2013

BOSTON -- WBUR reports that there was a last-minute rush to meet the deadline at the Massachusetts Gaming Commission headquarters near Faneuil Hall on Tuesday, with four last-minute applications submitted, leaving a total of 11 firms submitting initial applications for a Massachusetts casino or slot parlor license.

According to the WBUR report, the commission could certify all the applicants if they pass background checks, at which point bidders would need a host community agreement, a vote by residents and support of surrounding communities; if they pass those hurdles, they will remain in the competition.

The commission says it will award the single slot license first, and then the casino licenses, WBUR states.
