Slots Law in Massachusetts Could Cost Millions

massachusetts-quarter-75x74With the state’s first ever slot parlor scheduled to open in five month’s time, the gambling regulators in Massachusetts are calling on legislators to adjust the gambling law of 2011 or face the possibility of losing millions. Under the 2011 law, slot operators must stop a gambling machine transaction when a player wins $600. The chair of the Massachusetts Gaming Commission, Stephen Crosby, says that it is of critical importance to increase the threshold. It is also believed that this limit would drive gamblers to other gambling facilities in Connecticut and Rhode Island and would cost Massachusetts $6 million in revenue.
