Cordish Still Undecided Whether to Pursue Mall Site for Slot Parlor

The company eyeing Danvers still has not decided where it will seek a license for a slots parlor.

The Massachusetts Gaming Commission is still waiting to hear from Cordish Companies about where it wants to locate a proposed slots parlor in the state.

One possible site the company has considered is the Liberty Tree Mall in Danvers, and as a direct neighbor, Peabody would almost certainly factor into any considerations made for surrounding communities, if the plan were to go forward.

The other company that had not announced a location for its planned slots parlor, Mass Gaming and Entertainment LLC, has confirmed that it plans to pursue a project in Worcester, according to the Gaming Commission's Division of Investigations and Enforcement.

"They did not specify an exact location," said the commission's spokeswoman Elaine Driscoll.

The final company that has not announced a specific location is Cordish Companies, operating as PPE Resort Casinos in Massachusetts. It has not yet indicated a location and no deadline has been set for them to do so, Driscoll said.

There are also proposals for a slots parlor in Raynham and Plainville. The Massachusetts Gaming Commission will grant one slots license for the entire state later this year.

The company had planned to hold a public meeting at Danvers High School earlier this month to talk about its plans but that meeting was postponed. A new date has not been announced.
