Mass. Governor Rejects Casino Bill, Giving Foxwoods, Mohegan Sun A Reprieve



A disagreement between Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and the state's legislature over slot machine parlors could hand Connecticut's casinos yet another reprieve from formidable new competition in the Bay State.

Foxwoods Resort Casino and Mohegan Sun have long cast a wary eye toward Massachusetts, where the state's top political leaders want casinos. But the governor and lawmakers there have never agreed on how to make it happen, and they appear to be stalled again this year.

Failure in Massachusetts is success for Connecticut. Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun aren't talking about the situation in Massachusetts, but both casinos draw a large portion of their customers from the Bay State — as much as 36 percent in Foxwoods' case, according to estimates by the Center for Policy Analysis at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth.

Deval Patrick is an asshole. Im surprised people voted him in. I wish he would go away.

Hiya: If one State can not even agree on how to set up slot machine places, then how are all 50 states going to even come close to agreeing on how to implement an regulate on line gambling?

This is a shame! We live up in NH and have to drive 3 hrs down to CT to go to a casino. While we will do it, I can say we'd do it twice as much if we only had half the drive. Oh well, maybe someday?
