LITTLETON, Mass. —
A Canadian gambling company has announced that it is no longer interested in building a slots parlor in Littleton.
Toronto-based Clairvest said in a statement Wednesday that while it is still interested in exploring a gambling facility somewhere in Massachusetts, Littleton is off the table.
Clairvest had said it was interested in building a 100,000-square foot slots parlor on a 90-acre, mixed-use development being constructed just north of Interstate 495, close to the intersection with Route 2, called The Point.
The company met with town officials in December but never submitted a formal proposal to the state.
State law allows for three casinos and one slots-only facility. The deadline for applying for a permit for a slots facility is Jan. 15, with a $ 400,000 application fee required.
