    Northern New England: Tough Nut to Crack for Expanded Gaming

    Posted by gary on 03.25.2014



    toughnutIf you’re searching for a place to play a hand of black jack or visit a new slot facility, north of the Massachusetts border is not looking like the place to visit.  We’ve recently read about the failure to pass casino legislation in New Hampshire.  Vermont has never warmed up to the idea of casino gambling, and imposes strict fines on any violations of their anti-gambling laws.  And now the Maine Senate has rejected efforts to expand casino gaming.  Of course unlike Vermont and New Hampshire, Maine has already licensed casinos in Bangor and Oxford, and has gaming at a harness track and an off shore gambling cruise operation.

    Neighbors to Our North Nix Casino Gambling

    Posted by gary on 03.17.2014

    NHYou may have heard of the vote on March 13th that rejected a proposal to license one casino in New Hampshire with up to 5,000 video slot machines and 150 table games. The vote to kill the bill was 173 to 144 and Governor Maggie Hassan remains in favor of the one casino. What you didn’t read in the article is that their already is a vibrant gaming scene in NH with upwards of 9 licensed poker rooms in the Granite State operating daily. These rooms offer low limit poker and tournaments and even have blackjack and roulette. The caveat is that 35% of the poker room’s profits must be dedicated to a charity. Dozens of charitable organizations benefit from this, and there is a 5 year waiting list to get in on the action. The state also takes 13%. This is no small chunk of change. Rockingham Gaming LLC, which operates two of the poker rooms in Rockingham and Seabrook contributes nearly $2,000,000 yearly to charitable organizations and the state of NH. These rooms originated in 2006, and are regulated by the New Hampshire Racing & Charitable Gaming Commission.

    Online Gambling Decision Delayed in Massachusetts

    Posted by gary on 03.12.2014

    online-gamblingIt was reported today that it is highly unlikely that Massachusetts will become the 4th state to legalize online gaming, behind New Jersey, Nevada and Delaware. In fact, I’d be surprised if it ever happens at all. And given Massachusetts’s track record over the past few years in trying to bring brick & mortar casinos to life in the Bay State, this is probably a good thing.

    The Invaluable Tweet

    Posted by tara on 03.12.2014

    I consider myself a bit of a branding junkie. I am intrigued at the way that brands (big and small) choose to position and themselves and the impact those decisions have on consumer buy-in. In my former life I was in public relations and specifically worked with McDonald’s – one of the world’s most iconic brands. It was a challenge to keep the brand fresh, relevant, and protected especially when the biggest brands are very often the most frequent targets of negative news. In today’s world – social media has the ability to change things in an instant.
