The Massachusetts Gaming Commission will decide in the upcoming week if a proposed casino in Revere can move forward with its planning efforts, according to BostonHerald.com.

Although the commission, which met Tuesday, delayed the decision by a week, the Associate Press said it seems likely the commission will allow the Mohegan Sun and Suffolk Downs proposal to move forward, according to Boston.com.

If the commission doesn't reject the Revere proposal, it will compete against another casino proposal—close to Somerville in Everett—for the lone casino license available in the Greater Boston region. If the commission doesn't allow the Revere proposal to move forward, the Wynn Resorts Everett proposal will be the only one in the running for the license.

The commission plans to grant the license in mid-2014, Boston.com said.
