Should Worcester Welcome a Slot-Machine Casino?

This report, which examines the operations and potential effects of the slots industry on the City of Worcester, was undertaken because Worcester has been designated as the preferred site for a slot-machine casino by Mass Gaming LLC, a subsidiary of Rush Gaming. It is intended as a supplement and update to our 2007 report “Casino Gambling in Worcester: The Case For and Against“, which concluded that the net effects of bringing a casino to Worcester would be far more harmful than beneficial. In our present research, we discovered that the societal harm associated with casinos in general is greatly exacerbated by new developments in slot-machine technology, multiplying the dangers identified in the earlier report.
