Game Within Game
MGM’s choice to partner with the Red Sox highpoints the significance of casino operatives obtaining the biggest market share possible in the growing betting region. Connecticut officials approved two Native American groups – the Mohegan tribes and Mashantucket Pequots to build a $300 million casino in East Windsor, which is 13 miles south of MGM Springfield. Though the Las Vegas-based casino firm said Connecticut should have held a modest bidding process, they then presented a $675 million joint resort application for Bridgeport, CT.
The East Windsor casino was delayed by the US Government declining to approve the state’s edited gaming compacts with the tribes. That was a stipulation that was needed under the law prior to that signed by Governor Dannel Malloy in 2017.
MGM Casinos will advertise its Springfield resort at Fenway, however, a casino will soon be situated closer to the ballpark. More than five miles to the north, Wynn Resorts is concluding its $2.6 billion Boston Harbor resort within the Mystic River in Everton.
