Worcester site picked as possible slots spot


WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - The developers of a proposed slots parlor in Worcester have announced the site on which they hope to build.

Mass Gaming & Entertainment LLC announced Sunday that if awarded the state's only slots license they plan to build a $200 million "destination gaming facility" at the 14-acre Wyman-Gordon industrial property.

The property has been vacant for nearly a dozen years. The company made metal parts and products there for more than 100 years.

Chairman Neil Bluhm tells The Telegram & Gazette his group, a subsidiary of Rush Street Gaming, has spent more than a year looking for the right location.

City Manager Michael O'Brien called MGE's formal selection of the site an important first step. He says the next steps are local discussions and a formal review of the proposal.
