NEW: Plainville Awarded Massachusetts’ First Slot Parlor License

Thursday, February 27, 2014

 

Plainville has been selected by the Massachusetts Gaming Commission as the first (and only) slot parlor in the state.

On Thursday, Penn National Gaming was offered a conditional slot parlor license following a favorable vote of 3-2 from the gaming commission. The parlor will be located at the Plainridge Racecourse.

Penn National was instructed to return to the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center at 9:30 AM on Friday to accept the approximately 18 conditions of the license. At that point, the commission will take an official vote to award the state's sole license.

A proposal in Leominster received two votes and another proposal in Raynham received none.
