Connecticut’s Foxwoods Resort Casino has joined the race to open a casino in eastern Massachusetts.
The former chairman of the tribe that runs the Foxwoods Resort Casino is accused along with his treasurer brother of stealing a combined $800,000 from the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation.
The Mashantucket tribe reports slot revenues of $51 million, a decline of nearly 16 percent from July of last year.
The gambling bill promises to provide thousands of jobs across Massachusetts. But can that promise be kept?
Supporters say casinos and slots will create new jobs in Massachusetts. Opponents say the social and economic costs will outweigh the benefits.
Gambling casinos in Massachusetts? They are still not allowed, but the i-Team found plenty of people playing slots and video poker right here in the Bay State.
