New Casino Slots Opening Ad in Globe, Not Herald

June 25, 2015

From our Local Daily DisADvantage desk

Plainridge Park – the “first and only” (so far) casino in Massachusetts – opened yesterday in the aptly named town of Plainville. (And no, we didn’t know where Plainville is, either.)

But yes, the gambling hell (as Raymond Chandler would call it) did take out a full-page ad in yesterday’s Boston Globe to celebrate the big event.

But not, interestingly, in the Boston Herald.

Not to stereotype or anything, but if you’re trolling for slots parlor habitués, wouldn’t you bet on the free-spending readers of the thirsty local tabloid over the tight-fisted readers of the stingy local broadsheet?

Just askin’.
