Boston-Area Mall Viewed as Possible Slots Parlor

simon.com

A Baltimore company that was a last-minute applicant for one of Massachusetts’ gambling licenses is considering a 100,000-square-foot slots parlor at a suburban Boston mall.

Officials in the town of Danvers about 15 miles north of Boston say PPE Casino Resorts contacted the town earlier this month about the possibility of building a 24-hour slots parlor at the Liberty Tree Mall.

Danvers Selectman Dan Bennett tells The Boston Globe (http://bo.st/WcLELt ) the proposal calls for an approximately 50,000-square-foot addition to be added to the current facility. The proposed slots parlor would have up to 1,250 slot machines.

PPE Casino Resorts was one of 11 gambling companies that submitted a $400,000 application fee to the Massachusetts Gaming Commission earlier this month.

State law allows for three full casinos and one slots parlor. (Associated Press)
