Casino: First Light Casino
Owned By: Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe
Located In: Being built in East Taunton, Massachusetts
Launch Date: Summer of 2017
Site: First Light Casino

It will have a luxury hotel, high-end and family restaurants, a retail center, entertainment venues, and a water park. It is expected to be built in phases. The casino will be built first and the hotel will follow. This casino will be the first full destination casino for the State of Massachusetts.

They are expecting to bring in 2,600 jobs.

Overview of Facilities:

Gaming

150,000 sq-ft casino
3,000 slot machines
150 table games
40 poker tables

Restaurants

Food Court - 7 to 10 food outlets
International Buffet
Two Fine Dining Restaurants (Steakhouse / Seafood and Asian)
Center Bar with lounge seats and stage

Retail

10 Retail Stores

Other

Hotel Tower 1 is scheduled to be completed in 2018
Hotel Tower 2 is scheduled to be completed 32-60 months after launch
Familiy Water Park (hotel) is scheduled to be completed over 60 months after launch and will cover 25,000 sq. feet.

Bristol Community College (BCC, located across the street) is also creating a casino lab (currently under construction). They are offering a brand new associate's degree in hospitality management (one of which includes casino management).

Hope this info helps.

It's about 25 min from where I live so this is the casino I will be going to full time after it launches. I'm really looking forward to it opening.

Gaming floor looks terrible at first I thought it was a banquet hall or something.

As most gamblers play negative expectation games, it is a given that A Lot of money is transferred from their pockets to the casinos'.

I've got to wonder what effect, if any, this is having on the overall financial health of the gamblers?

I wonder if any analysis has been done, as to the per capita drain on the savings of gamblers since casinos exploded?

We should all sock away money, both for emergencies and for retirement: how much of this have the casinos induced us to hand over to them?

In other words, I wonder what percentage of our discretionary income is going to the casino's coffers?

No way that's the actual gaming floor-look closely at the roulette there is no where for the dealer and the wheel would be impossible for them to reach

They are renderings from their website. I agree with you. There has to be room for dealers and the pit crew. I'm not sure I like the brightness either but I'm sure the finished product will look good.

Why spend more than 1 Billion on a project that doesn't work 100%?

My amateur opinion is that the architects /rendering artists are not casino specialists; they just put some gaming tables in the space .

The floor plan is counterproductive to gambling; it should wind around through tables grouped to create more intimate pits.

The long, wide aisle creates a funneling effect through and out of the casino, when the intent is to help people linger, let games catch their interest.

Nothing looks shabby and grubby faster than white furniture. The spills, stuff on clothing, heavy use; they're going to double the typical cleaning and replacement costs.

There's an intimidating, almost factory feel to it with the brightness and regimentation. Emphasizes "we're here to take all your money, all of you".

It will be really loud with all the hard surfaces and high ceilings. Sounds echo across the room. This is something I don't like about Mohegan, fwiw (maybe it was Foxwoods? I was there briefly ). Anyway, it's a high ceilinged grey stone floors and walls casino; you couldn't hear yourself think, let alone relax for the noise bouncing around.

I really doubt the interior will actually look much like that. Maybe keep the color scheme since it's tied into the building components. JMHO.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Doesn't the asian games pit/room/thing at Foxwoods look basically just like that drawing of this casino? I'm sure they're just trying to capture a feel that they know "works". Why drive all that way from Boston if we have identical stuffs right here!!

The Ceiling in Mohegan Sun is high enough to accommodate a three story onyx mountain and a 55' waterfall with room to spare.

That may be why MS has much better air quality than low ceiling casinos.

Foxwoods is low ceiling and the air quality there is poor.

Look a little closer.

Those are all low profile tables.

IE: Chairs, not stools.
