Hard Rock International had partnered with Paper City Development to build a casino in Holyoke, Massachusetts. But now the gaming franchise, owned by the Seminole Tribe of Florida, and Paper City are considering alternative sites for a gaming resort in Western Massachusetts, reported GazetteNet.com.

The parties had previously proposed to develop a Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on the 100-acre Wyckoff Country Cluboff Interstate 91 in Holyoke, according to CityBiz Real Estate.

The Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority behind the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut is also seeking to build a gaming resort in Western Massachusetts. The Authority's proposed destination casino in Palmer would feature a 600-room hotel and spa, and a casino with slots, table games and poker.
