MGM unveiled its plan today for $800 million casino in Springfield, Massachusetts and filed a $400 million application fee with the Massachusetts Gaming Commission. MGM is the third company to apply for a state casino license under the Massachusetts gambling law signed last Nov 22, 2011. Plainridge Racecourse submitted the first application Aug 10 for a slots parlor in the southeastern region. That was followed the next day by Suffolk Downs with an application for a casino in East Boston.
MGM's application is the first for a casino in western Massachusetts. Only one license will be issued in that region. The Mohegan Tribe of Connecticut are a contender for that license. The tribe hopes to build a casino resort in Palmer, Massachusetts similar to their Mohegan Sun in Connecticut.
Other companies that may vie for a Springfield casino include:
