Chicago billionaire Neil Bluhm, the real estate tycoon who also runs a casino in Pennsylvania, has chosen a 14-acre site in Worcester, Massachusetts, for his proposed slots parlor.
Bluhm, through his Mass. Gaming & Entertainment LLC, has already paid the $400,000 non-refundable fee to be considered for the gaming license. The parcel chosen is owned by Wyman-Gordon of Worcester and is under option to a hotel developer.
“We have spent more than a year looking for the right location and we believe the Worcester site is by far the best location in the state for our new gaming facility,” Bluhm was quoted as saying.
There are three other firms seeking the one and only slots license to be awarded.
