EAST BOSTON—Emboldened by their win at the polls last week, casino opponents are going for broke: "[A]nti-casino activists say they have the momentum to repeal the state's gambling law as the deadline approaches for organizers to secure nearly 70,000 signatures for a ballot question push." [Herald]

EAST BOSTON/REVERE—Plans to plunk a casino-resort just over the Boston border in Revere are running out of steam and fast: "Suffolk Downs' eleventh-hour effort to shift its proposed casino site from East Boston to Revere is looking more like a Hail Mary bid, with House Speaker Robert DeLeo expressing doubts and Boston Mayor-elect Martin J. Walsh touting Milford yesterday, while Revere's own mayor said he's in the dark." Some Eastie residents would be quite happy if the casino ended up in Milford. [Herald/Globe]

MASS.-WIDE—Meanwhile, key twists in the state's casino-licensing saga are a-comin': "Three casino proposals reach critical junctures this week, as Suffolk Downs plans to pitch a new Revere-centric vision to the state Gaming Commission, the date of a recount on Mohegan Sun's failed Palmer bid is set, and a Foxwoods proposal in Milford gets its suitability vetting."
