Locals Speak out about New Casino

State officials reveled in excitement as the opening of the States News Resort style casinos launched on Friday night with panache.    New England’s Las Vegas style celebrations will continue for the next recent weeks opening with the infamous Clydesdales Horses on opening night, Stevie Wonder scheduled to play on 1 September and the anticipated Prince show, A Symphonic Celebration of Prince slated to play on 18 September. 

According to Springfield resident Corey W., “The Casino opening in Springfield is a good thing, I’m excited, more for the entertainment venues rather than gambling possibilities.  The Entertainment scene will be real addition to the city.”

Locals in general seem to be leaning towards the affirmative when it comes to the new opening.  However longtime resident Tracy C. says,” If I go to Connecticut, they will provide my alcoholic beverages in addition to offer a smoking section.  Those are real value adds and I like those benefits.  I will continue to travel to Connecticut for the time being.”

The $950 million Casino project was gently pushed back to allow the rebuilding of I-91, and is advertising new positions within MGM Casino with pay grades ranging from $17 to $51 per hour.

After seven years of planning and building, Lt Governor Karyn Polito, Congressman Richard Neal, and Governor Charlie Baker were able to celebrate the new Opening together on Thursday night.
