MGM pulls $600m Brimfield casino plan

MGM Resorts is abandoning plans to build a $600 million casino resort on a secluded site in rural Brimfield, saying that the land would not meet the needs of its ambitious project, but that MGM will continue searching for an appropriate site, the company confirmed Tuesday.

MGM, one of the world’s biggest casino operators, still intends to compete for the sole casino license for Western Massachusetts, a region that has drawn heavy interest from casino developers.
