SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The Massachusetts Gaming Commission will begin its final deliberations on the MGM Springfield project on Tuesday (June 10th).  They will hold their public evaluations on Tuesday and Wednesday if necessary at the MassMutual Center at 10am.

The gaming commission will conclude their evaluations if necessary in Boston on Thursday.

Friday, June 13th, back at the MassMutual Center in Springfield, the gaming commission is expected to determine if MGM will be given a gaming license in Massachusetts.  The commission may award MGM the license at this point or agree to wait to issue the license until the “repeal the casino deal” effort is settled either by the Supreme Judicial Court or a state-wide vote in November.

The state Supreme Judicial Court is expected to issue a decision by early July if the Massachusetts gaming law can move forward as it or if there will be a state-wide referendum on it this November.
