Success - Article sent! close

MILLBURY, Mass. -- A Chicago-based casino developer that ended talks for a slots parlor in Worcester now says it is working with officials in Millbury about finding a site there for a $200 million facility.

Mass Gaming & Entertainment CEO Greg Carlin said Tuesday the company expects to choose a site in town soon. MGE is a subsidiary of Rush Street Gaming.

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.
