A MESSAGE FROM CHAIRMAN STEVE CROSBY
Welcome to the new MassGaming.com, the Massachusetts Gaming Commission’s online news and information resource.
From the beginning, the Massachusetts Gaming Commission has made a strong commitment to transparency and frequent information sharing as we introduce expanded gaming to the Commonwealth. Our single most important priority is that the public and the participants know that the licensing process was conducted with the utmost integrity and care, and that Massachusetts has paved a future for a robust, financially stable and rigorously ethical gaming industry.
With integrity, transparency and your participation, Massachusetts will soon be home to several state-of-the-art, world-class gaming facilities attracting visitors from around the globe. In addition, the arrival of expanded gaming is expected to create 8,000 – 10,000 construction jobs, 8,000-10,000 permanent jobs and generate $300-$500 million annually in new revenue.
In an effort to successfully achieve our goals, we will continue to work closely with the public and our many constituents to develop the best possible strategies to maximize the benefits of expanded gaming for Massachusetts residents. MassGaming.com is crucial to that effort; it will provide timely and important information to municipalities, gaming applicants, individuals, press and the many others who have an interest in following or participating in the licensing process.
On behalf of my fellow Commissioners, I am pleased to introduce the new MassGaming.com- a comprehensive and interactive online resource for the latest gaming news and commission information. I invite you to take some time to browse through the various information and available links.
