Gaming Commission seeks help to prepare for new casinos

Apr 16, 2012 8:36 PM

With little gaming experience represented among the five-member Massachusetts Gaming Commission, the group decided during its first official meeting to seek help in preparing the state for the arrival of three casinos.

The group reached out to Spectrum Gaming Corp. of New Jersey and the law firm of Michael & Carroll, citing their experience with regulating casinos and gambling-related law enforcement investigations in New Jersey and elsewhere.

Also, the commission voted to retain the Cambridge-based law firm of Anderson & Krieger to assist in developing ethics guidelines and other legal matters.

The Commission has scheduled a second meeting to be held this week.
