Casino odds change on Beacon Hill for Wampanoag Tribe


The Massachusetts Senate version of a gaming bill that emerged Friday from a legislative committee changed the odds for the Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head (Aquinnah). The Senate budget committee endorsed legislation Friday that calls for casinos in three regions of the state, eliminates an earlier provision setting aside a license for an Indian tribe, and allows no slot machines at the state's four racetracks.
