Recently, leaders of the Aquinnah Wampanoags, a federally recognized American Indian Tribe of Cap Cod island proposed transforming an unfinished tribal community center into a brand new casino facility. The gambling establishment is planned to be equipped with a high-stakes bingo, multiple slots bonus casino machines and a poker hall. Being a favorite getaway for celebrities and other wealthy personalities in the world, this casino proposal is expected to provide Martha's Vineyard community an “economic self-sufficiency”, a way out to its dependence on federal government. Numerous are those who agreed on the idea.
For the moment, the tribe is looking investors to fund the casino proposal which is estimated at $ 10 million. Of course, many investors would be interested in this project since Martha’s Vineyard is home to a wide range of potential commodities including restaurants, movie theater, golf courses and beaches, all complementary to casino business.
