Brockton Casino Investor Urges MassGaming for Quick Choice on Proposal
Neil Bluhm, one of the individuals behind the project that is ambitious a casino resort in Brockton, urged the Massachusetts Gaming Commission to simply take swift action on the proposition. Otherwise, the investor threatened that he would withdraw his support for the construction for the gambling venue.
Mr. Bluhm is Chairman of gambling developer and operator Rush Street Gaming, moms and dad company associated with newly formed Mass Gaming and Entertainment, that is responsible for the $650-million casino project.
The investor indicated concerns that the state gambling regulator may be purposefully delaying its decision on whether it could give Mass Gaming and Entertainment the single Southeastern Massachusetts casino license. Mr. Bluhm proposed that commissioners could possibly prefer to watch for the resolution that is pending the legal status of a casino proposal from the state’s federally recognized Mashpee Wampanoag Indian Tribe.
The tribe has used to just take into trust 150 acres of land in Taunton. If provided the land, it would be able to commence work with its proposed policy for a gambling location. Nevertheless, Mr. Bluhm argued that when the Bureau of Indian Affairs guidelines and only the tribe, your decision will most definitely be appealed. This, in change, may introduce a years-long legal battle and the investor suggested which he could not wait that long.
The Brockton casino plan could be the only bidder for the Southeastern Massachusetts casino license.
