Casino market getting crowded

Milford site a rival to 2 urban options

As another casino giant ­entered the fray in Eastern Massachusetts, officials at Suffolk Downs, until recently the sole contender for a license in the ­region, expressed confidence Monday that their application would ­remain strongly competitive.

“We always knew there would be competition for the resort casino license in our region and that we would have to earn the ­license,” said Chip Tuttle, chief operating officer of Suffolk Downs, the thorough­bred racetrack that is working with casino giant Caesars Entertainment. “We are doing just that with a world-class proposal that will bring thousands of jobs to the people who need them, keep the new revenue in Massachusetts, and also bring much-needed transportation improvements to the area.”
