One thing that seems to be consistent with all of these meetings is that they are very far away in MA from really understanding the future of online gaming. They bring it up briefly every meeting.
Something that would be helpful. Does anyone have any statistics on how online gaming and online poker specifically affect B&M casino business? The MA Gaming Commission is looking for these insights.
They are also looking for insights from the public on the following topics:
- Insights into the best way to arrange the 3 casinos and the slots parlor in the predetermined regions. These insights should be based on actual economic impact statistics.
- Creative ways to create additional jobs with the addition of new casinos.
- What percentage of casino profits comes from "problem gamblers?" What percentage of casino profits comes from people whose gambling negatively affects their own lives, regardless of whether or not they are technically problem gamblers? What percentage of casino profits comes from casino employee gambling? Other stuff along those lines. They would rather have the study and reports than the numbers alone.
If I remember more, I will post it. The forum outage made it tougher to remember!
