Casino applications stretch thousands of pages

Wynn Resorts delivered a final application more than 18,000 pages long to the Massachusetts Gaming Commission, promising a $1.3 billion resort casino on the Mystic River waterfront.

MGM’s application for a Springfield casino topped 7,000 pages. And Mohegan Sun submitted more than 16,000 pages outlining its plans for a 42-acre project at Suffolk Downs in Revere.

The three companies, the remaining applicants for two of the state’s three casino licenses, submitted their final applications by Tuesday’s deadline, punctuating a comprehensive, two-phase application process that had already seen other companies bow out of the competition.

The gambling commission said on its website Tuesday that it plans to publicly post the lengthy applications next week. It hopes to name the winning licensees for Western and Eastern Massachusetts by May.
