Foxwoods joins chase for casino license in Mass.

Foxwoods Resort Casino, a dominant name in the New England gambling market, is joining the Massachusetts casino sweepstakes as a partner in a Milford proposal, and promising a “full court press” for the sole casino resort license in the Boston region.

The Connecticut casino operator’s decision instantly enhances the credibility of the Milford project, and intensifies the competition for what is expected to be the most lucrative casino license in the state. The addition of Foxwoods, the proto­type for the rural Northeast gambling resort, is likely to bring new attention to the debate over the comparative merits of urban and suburban casinos.
