According to published reports, the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe plans to build a casino resort in Taunton, Mass., just east of Providence, R.I. The proposal is one of at least six that have been announced, only three of which actually will come to fruition, as the state's new gaming law allows for just three casino licenses. Other proposals have come from Mohegan Sun, Caesars Entertainment, MGM Resorts International, Hard Rock International and Wynn Resorts.
