BOSTON — The three companies hoping to operate the first resort casinos in Massachusetts are getting a chance to make direct pitches to the state gambling commission.
MGM Resorts International, Mohegan Sun and Wynn Resorts are scheduled to each make 90-minute presentations to the panel on Wednesday.
MGM has proposed a casino in downtown Springfield and is the only remaining applicant for the western Massachusetts casino license.
Mohegan Sun wants to build a casino in Revere, if voters there approve a Feb. 25 referendum. The company would be competing for the sole eastern Massachusetts casino license with Wynn, which has proposed a facility in Everett.
All three firms have filed thousands of pages of documents with the five-member commission, which hopes to make decisions and award the licenses in May.
