Massachusetts Gaming Commission

Boston, MA



Pinck & Co. served as the Project Coordinator for the Massachusetts Gaming Commission, developing the program and review process for the evaluation of proposals from gaming operators and developers vying for Massachusetts gaming licenses (Category 1 for a casino license and Category 2 for a slots parlor license).  This project was subject to intense scrutiny by residents and legislators throughout Massachusetts and Pinck & Co. helped to shepherd the program forward.


Pinck & Co. was Oversight Project Manager, coordinating all activities related to the design, permitting, construction, adherence to community agreements, and commitments in applications for two Massachusetts Casino developments – Plainridge Park Casino and MGM Springfield.   The $225 million Plainridge Park Casino slots parlor development was constructed at the Plainridge harness track in Plainville, MA; the project features 1,250 slot machines, harness racing with simulcast, and created over  500 permanent jobs upon opening in June 2015.  The $800 million MGM Springfield casino – set to occupy a 14.5 acre site in downtown Springfield – will include a landmark casino, hotel and resort, dining, retail and entertainment facilities; the project will create 2,000 construction jobs over a 30-month construction period as well as thousands more permanent jobs when the casino opens in August, 2018.
