Brockton Casino Investor Urges MassGaming for Fast Decision on Proposal
Neil Bluhm, one of many individuals behind the project that is ambitious a casino resort in Brockton, urged the Massachusetts Gaming Commission to just take swift action on the proposition. Otherwise, the investor threatened which he would withdraw his help for the construction regarding the gambling venue.
Mr. Bluhm is Chairman of gambling designer and operator Rush Street Gaming, parent company for the newly created Mass Gaming and Entertainment, that will be in charge of the $650-million casino project.
The investor indicated issues that the state gambling regulator can be purposefully delaying its choice on whether it would grant Mass Gaming and Entertainment the sole Southeastern Massachusetts casino permit. Mr. Bluhm recommended that commissioners would probably like to watch for the resolution that is pending the legal status of the casino proposal from the state’s federally recognized Mashpee Wampanoag Indian Tribe.
The tribe has applied 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 plan for a gambling place. However, Mr. Bluhm argued that when the Bureau of Indian Affairs rules in favor of the tribe, the decision will definitely be appealed. This, in turn, may launch a years-long appropriate battle and the investor suggested he could maybe not wait that long.
The Brockton casino plan could be the bidder that is only the Southeastern Massachusetts casino license.
