Massachusetts casinos to reopen without poker

Casinos will reopen in Massachusetts with restrictions and without poker, roulette or craps.

US.- Regulators from the Massachusetts Gaming Commission have revealed guidelines for the reopening of casinos. The body has not yet announced the date when casinos will be back in operation but it has developed a protocol for reopening.

Gamblers will not be allowed to carry drinks around the casino and operators will not be allowed to offer craps, roulette, or poker games.

Blackjack tables will be allowed only three players per table with plexiglass dividers used to separate players from each other and from the dealer.

The regulator said poker, craps, and roulette would be reintroduced once it was possible to ease restrictions.

Slot machines will be cleaned at least once every four hours and will be spaced out throughout the casino. Gamblers will be required to wear masks or face coverings while on the gambling floor.

It was expected that Massachusetts would allow casinos to reopen as early as June 29, but Governor Charlie Baker has yet to make any firm announcement.
