Massachusetts Casinos To Have Relaxed Alcohol Rules
When it comes to drinking or buying alcohol in Massachusetts, the state has some tougher laws than many other states. However, that won't be the case for casino's coming to the Bay State.
The Governor this week has signed a bill that loosens the alcohol restrictions for the casinos masslive.com. For example, bars in the state can't serve drinks after 2 a.m., but casinos can serve until 4 a.m. There are no happy hours allowed in Massachusetts taverns, but the casinos will be allowed to serve comp drinks to gamblers.
Another drinking rule change for the casinos happens on Sunday Mornings. If you want a mimosa with alcohol for brunch at a restaurant in the state, you have to wait until 10 a.m. However, at the casinos you'll be able to have a drink at 8 a.m.
The Mass Live story adds that this was done to help maximize the potential and competitiveness of the three gaming facilities that will operate in the state.
