Gary W. Loveman, who heads casino giant Caesars Entertainment Corp., is scheduled to address the Boston College’s Chief Executives’ Club of Boston next week, BC said.

Chairman, president, and chief executive of Caesars Entertainment, Loveman will speak about “The Gambling Business: Fortune, Science, and the Public Debate” at an invitation-only lunch set for Feb. 14 Boston Harbor Hotel, BC added.

The remarks promise to be timely. A state law legalizing casino gambling was signed by Governor Deval Patrick in November; the law authorizes up to three resort casinos, one each in Western Massachusetts, another in the Greater Boston/Worcester area, and another in the southeastern part of the state.


Caesars is working with Suffolk Downs to develop plans for a possible hotel and casino at the East Boston track.

With 52 casino properties located on four continents and more than $8.8 billion in annual revenues, Caesars Entertainment is the largest casino entertainment corporation in the world, BC noted in a press release.
