Plainridge park casino to open in Massachusetts

March 31, 2014 by  

Penn National Gaming Inc. recently won approval for its Plainridge Park Casino in Plainville, just a few miles south of Foxboro, from the Massachusetts Gaming Commission and has planned a major ground-breaking ceremony.

Most likely, it is using a variety of printing services to let those in the area become aware of this new facility, which will create 1,000 jobs while under construction and 500 new permanent jobs once the project is completed.

The project is expected to cost $225m and will be 106,000 square feet in size, with a 1,250 slot machine parlor, a race course, an upscale casual restaurant, a food court, and the Doug Flutie Sports Bar, the first of its kind.

In addition, there will be a multi-purpose banquet room, a harness concourse bar, lounge for entertainment, 1,620 parking spaces, a clubhouse 13,000 square feet in size with box seats, and a grandstand 26,000 square feet in size with reserved and box seats.

According to senior vice president of Government Affairs for Penn National Gaming, Eric Schippers, the company is happy to begin construction on this project, which he feels will be a great economic boost for Massachusetts. The groundbreaking will be an opportunity for the company to share its excitement with the company’s employees, those in the community, and the state and local leaders who helped to make the project come to fruition.
