Plainville Casino... not doing too well. Could have been us

Remember all the empty promises about the new Slots Parlor that was being proposed at Ames Hill??

SO glad we dodged THAT bullet despite the ridiculous endorsement of all of our 'Town Fathers' and others drinking the Flutie koolaid who fell for the pitch....hook, line and sinker! And that's JUST what we would have ended up being by now....SUNK!!! :roll:

Probably for the best that we dodged the bullet but you'll never know if a slots parlor in this location might have fared better. Plainville is too close to other action.

Soon Tewksbury will be too close to other action as well. The huge Wynn Casino will soon be built right in Everett... a stone throw away from Tewksbury. Closer than Plainville is to the other "action".

Everett will really be a "destination"... only the drunks will come to our slot parlor... oh wait... we don't have one ! :)

It doesn't take a brainiac to figure out that if two Connecticut casinos are having a hard time making big money in New England... how will five more help that ???!! Duh.

Not to mention being dumped in the middle of a bordering residential neighborhood! It would have ended up being another black hole in Tewksbury once the damages were done.
