The city of Leominster has become the third Massachusetts community to approve a proposed slots parlor.
The other two are in Plainville and in Raynham.
The Worcester Telegram reported that voters in Leominster backed the slot plan by about 63 percent of those casting ballots.
An affirmative referendum vote was required before the developer, Cordish Co., could submit its final application to the state's gambling commission.
Leominster is in northern Worcester County. The proposed slots parlor would be built near Interstate 190.
The Massachusetts casino law, passed in 2011, allows for only a single slots-only facility.
