Mass. officials unable to reach slots parlor deal

Jun 10, 2013 8:04 PM

City officials in Worcester, Massachusetts, say they have been unable to reach a deal with gambling developers who proposed building a $240 million slots parlor.

In a joint statement issued last week, the city and officials of Mass Gaming & Entertainment said they were ending talks on a host community agreement that was needed to move forward under the state gambling law.

Mass Gaming is backed by Chicago developer Neil Bluhm who also operates a casino in Pennsylvania.
