    5 to Watch: Can 'Shib Sibs' Win Gold? Men's Hockey Miracle?

    Massachusetts' lone casino is enjoying a rise in gambling revenues.

    The state Gambling Commission reported Tuesday that Plainridge Park Casino in Plainville generated $12.7 million in gross revenues from its slot machines last month.

    That brought the slot parlor and harness racing track's total gross revenues from gambling to $164.8 million in 2017, or a roughly 6 percent increase from the facility's $155 million in gross gambling revenues in 2016.

    December's haul is also slightly higher than the $12.6 million the casino drew from its slot machines in December 2016.

    The state, which collects 49 percent of Plainridge's gambling revenues, has drawn nearly $200 million from the casino since its opening in June 2015.

    MGM and Wynn are also building major resort casinos slated to open in the coming years.
