The Massachusetts Gaming Commission may consider changing the current December
1st due date for the sole Region C casino license. The new date could be
postponed to January 30th instead. The announcement was made on Thursday by the
Ombudsman for the commission, John Ziemba.
In 2012 the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe and Gov. Deval Patrick agreed on a gaming
compact. That would allow for the the tribe to build a $500 million casino
resort. The casino would be developed in Taunton. However, the following year
the commission voted to allow for competition from non-tribal gaming developers
It is possible that the tribe may continue with their plans to build the casino
regardless if the state gaming commission grants them the license or not. That
may keep potential non-tribal developers from applying for the gaming license.
Ziemba stated that he believes that at least one non tribal developer will apply
before the December due date.
