Millbury Town Manager Bob Spain said the project would create 400 new permanent jobs and provide needed revenue.

Under Massachusetts gambling law, the town would negotiate a host agreement for voters to approve before the project could be considered for the state's single slots parlor license.

Three other companies also are working on slots parlor bids.

MGE and Worcester officials announced last month they weren't able to reach an agreement.
