Everett, MA

Wynn LLC has been licensed to build a $1.6 billion five-star resort and casino at Everett near Boston. The Massachusetts Gaming Commission approved Wynn's application over proposals from Mohegan Sun and Suffolk Downs.

BROCKTON CASINO - REJECTED 4.28.2016
The Massachusetts Gaming Commission can issue one more casino license for the southeastern part of the state. Mass Gaming & Entertainment had proposed a $650 million casino in Brockton about 17 miles north of Taunton, however the Gaming Commission decided in April 2016 to reject their application.  The 4-1 vote against the Brockton casino did not rule out approval of a future commercial casino in the region.

A gaming compact between the state and the Mashpee Wampanoag requires the tribe to pay the state 17 percent of its gambling revenues.  Commercial casinos pay 25 percent.  If a commercial casino is licensed in the same region, the Mashpee Wampanoag will pay nothing.
