The Massachusetts Expand Slot Machine Gaming Initiative was a 2016 Massachusetts ballot measure. Also known as Question 1, it was an indirect initiated state statute question that would allow the Massachusetts Gaming Commission to issue an additional license for another slot machine parlor to exist in the state. The ballot question specified that the additional slots parlor be licensed only on a property within 1,500 feet (460 m) of a racetrack and built on a parcel that is at least 4 acres (1.6 ha) in size. The only location in the state where this would have applied was Suffolk Downs in East Boston.
A "yes" vote would allow a second slots parlor to exist in Massachusetts.
A "no" vote would leave the current number of one slots parlor place.
