Slots parlor developer releases Worcester plans

Posted: Updated:

WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - Developers of a proposed slots parlor in Worcester have released plans and renderings of the $240 million project.

Mass Gaming & Entertainment LLC is planning a "destination gaming facility" at the vacant 14-acre Wyman-Gordon industrial property. It estimates the project will bring an estimated 600 permanent jobs and mean millions in taxes and other revenues for Worcester.

The renderings released Wednesday show an airy brick complex featuring large windows, room for pedestrians, as well as a restaurant and a sports bar.

Mass Gaming also promises that local businesses will receive priority as vendors to supply the casino's products and services.

Slots parlor opponents say the development would bring various social ills, swamp city services and lead to an increase in crime. They also say it would damage local businesses and disproportionately hurt the poor.
