MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Not everyone is excited about the idea of building a casino in downtown Minneapolis.

The new owner of Block E is considering opening a Bellagio or Wynn style luxury casino.

However, John McCarthy, the executive director of the Minnesota Indian Gaming Association, has real concerns.

Speaking with WCCO’s Chad Hartman, McCarthy said it is not going to be a “money machine.”

McCarthy says he’d like the state to do a study of the impact of a casino on other gaming operations before it goes forward.
