A meeting is been held recently by the game regulators to discuss the next steps in deciding whether to open a rebidding process for a Southeastern Massachusetts Casino.
The Gaming commission of Massachusetts will discuss options for how to move forward with restarting the bid process, including from a company that wants a second chance at a license for a casino on the Brockton Fairgrounds.
In 2016, gambling operators dashed any hopes for mass gaming and entertainment had of operating a resort style casino in Brockton, saying their original proposal lacked the quality sought by the commission.
MG&E sent letters to Massachusetts Gaming Commission in the summer of 2018, petitioning the commission to reconsider its previous denial of a casino in Brockton.
In Response, the state commission’s letter written by its general counsel Catherine Blue.
“The commission has received requests in the past to reconsider application after the commission’s denial of license. Blue wrote that the commissioner’s found that MG&E’s application failed to demonstrate that the proposed project would maximize revenue to the commonwealth or that it would offer the highest and best value to create a secure and robust gaming market in Region C.
Southeastern Massachusetts is the only section of the state without a casino.
