The Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation of Connecticut wants to open a casino in Massachusetts and gaming regulators are eager to hear more about the plan.

The tribe is partnering with a developer to bid on a casino in the eastern part of the state. But the Massachusetts Gaming Commission hasn't received any information so far.

“We do not yet have any official documentation from [the tribe],” a spokesperson for the commission told The Revere Journal. “They will need to have a discussion soon with MGC investigators to determine their qualifiers and then they will need to submit their applications.”

Two other non-Indian gaming companies are also bidding for the eastern Massachusetts license. The commission has promised to make a decision in early 2014.
