MGM Resorts Seeking Casino In Western Mass.

Another major casino company is set to unveil plans for a gambling facility in Massachusetts.

MGM Resorts International plans to partner with a local landowner to develop a casino on a 150-acre site in the western Massachusetts town of Brimfield. That's according to a person familiar with the proposal who requested anonymity because a formal announcement had not been made.

A news conference has been scheduled for Thursday.

MGM Resorts operates 16 casinos, including several in Las Vegas.

The land just north of the Massachusetts Turnpike is owned by David Callahan, chief executive of Palmer Paving Corp. and a principal of Rolling Hills Estates Realty Trust.

Massachusetts' new gaming law allows for three resort casinos, one of which would be in the western part of the state.
