Auditor releases report on Massachusetts Gaming Commission

MGC administers both self-voluntary and non-voluntary gambling exclusion lists which prohibit individuals from gaming activities in the state. Although the audit, which examined July 1, 2018 through March 31, 2020, found no deficiencies in these areas, it highlighted the need for MGC to improve collaboration with other entities around issues facing the state’s horse racing industry.
