Gambling Industry Advances In Massachusetts

Feb 28, 2014

The effort to bring Las Vegas-style gambling to Massachusetts hit a milestone today when regulators awarded the first casino license.  The Massachusetts Gaming Commission awarded a license to Penn National Gaming to operate a slot machine parlor at a harness race  track in Plainville on the Rhode Island border.  WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Clyde Barrow, a professor of public policy at UMass Dartmouth, who specializes in the gaming industry.
