Fall River Mass Casino Faces Long Odds

bilde.jpeg

We've actively tacking the proposed Fall River Casino here in Mass, that was as of a few weeks ago going to be a Bio Park, and that the location of the proposed casino keeps changing. The tribe announced Monday that it intends to scrap plans for an Indian casino in Middleboro in favor of locating a gaming resort at a 300-acre site near Route 24 in Fall River. But the plan, which includes three hotels and a shopping mall, trumpeted by tribal council chairman Cedric Cromwell and Fall River Mayor Will Flanagan Monday, may have as many, if not more, roadblocks than the Middleboro site.

Polling Shows Major Casino Support In Massachusetts

A recent poll shows most adults in Massachusetts support casinos - but most don't want one in their own community, according to a new statewide survey by the Western New England College Polling Institute in Springfield. The telephone poll of 528 adults, conducted April 11-15 and partly during a floor debate about casinos on Beacon Hill, found that 58 percent in Massachusetts support approval of casinos for the state while 35 percent are opposed.

Let's hope that we can get this bill passed in Mass, so we can get the jobs much needed and revenues to support our state at all levels.

australia-casino.jpg

Massachusetts Senate leaders are putting the brakes on House Speaker Robert A. DeLeo’s determined push for gambling legislation, sending clear signals yesterday that they would take their time and give the issue a fresh look in June. Yep, they're going to drag their feet on the proposed 2500 jobs, and billions in revenues so each one of them can get their piece. Oh well - let's hope it just passes later this year and we can stop sending people to CT to gamble with money they should be spending in Mass.

Massachusetts to Act on Casinos - The Time is Now

kreiter_casino4_met.jpg

House Speaker Robert A. DeLeo, surrounded by casino lobbyists, labor leaders, and racetrack supporters, said today that his bill to license two resort-style casinos and slot machines at the state’s four racetracks would help lift the state from its economic malaise and close its yawning budget gap. The casinos would be two $500 million resort styles, and there would also be licenses for two $75 million dollar racetrack slot machine casinos. We'll let you know if it passes - but it looks good so far.

MGM Mirage Stock Drops After Big Increase On Tuesday - Casino Stocks

mgm-mirage(35)-pic.JPG.jpeg

We just don't follow casino stock prices that much, but it looks like the MGM Mirage was one of the US-based gaming companies that had their stock jump on Tuesday after word on the future of the Macau casino industry was announced. That bump, however, was short lived, as MGM stock dropped slightly yesterday. Huh? Well - it sounds like speculation drove it, and then some people took back that small jump. If you want our advice on gambling or selling and buying stocks - make sure you take your BUMP and get up from the table occasionally.
