Massachusetts Casinos Cleared to Reintroduce Roulette
Roulette wheels can spin once again in Massachusetts casinos, but only with COVID-19 safety precautions that outlaw the typical rowdy atmosphere of players and spectators around the table.
The Massachusetts Gaming Commission approved the reintroduction of roulette to MGM Springfield and Encore Boston Harbor at a meeting Thursday that also saw regulators approve a variety of mostly minor changes to the rules of the games offered at Massachusetts casinos.
When the commission allowed casinos to reopen in July, regulators did not allow poker, craps and roulette on the gaming floors.
The commission approved a series of safety guidelines the casinos must follow if they plan to offer roulette. Instead of the usual nine players seated and others standing around the table, the game will be capped at a maximum of three players, all of whom must be seated and separated by plexiglass. No spectators will be allowed to stand around the table.
