Wynn Resorts; Casino Coming to Boston. A Win-Wynn Situation and I Am All In!
Gaming has always been a big part of my family. From early on, I can remember playing card games, board games, chess, and dominoes. We also played knock poker or 31. Gambling for real money wasn’t allowed, however, us kids would use toothpicks to gamble with or pennies.
I grew up and, of course, along came Casinos on Indian Land. I wasn’t a fan of a traditional gaming such as slots, roulette, etc; but cards, oh yeah, I can play some cards! Then I learned how to play Texas hold’em. Ever since I have been a fan of the game and other casino games as well. So, I was very excited to learn about a New and Exciting Vegas casino coming to the Greater Boston Area.
Scheduled to open in the summer of 2019, welcome to Wynn Boston Harbor; America’s first five-star urban gaming resort which will be accessible by land and sea. Wynn casino will offer numerous amenities and entertainment, including the Harbor walk, shoreline park, water shuttle.
Beating out rival proposals from Mohegan Sun and Suffolk Downs, Wynn Resorts won the Greater Boston casin0 license in 2014. Since that time, Wynn Resorts has prevailed in lawsuits filed against it by the City of Boston and the city of Somerville. I have said it before and I say again; Boston, the city where American Revolutions begin and where history is still being made!
Unlike most casinos who only open a few segments at a time, Wynn Casino is pulling all the stops and plans to open in one grand event. The 150,000 square foot casino floor is designed to comfortably house 3,242 slot machines and 168 table games. At a build-out cost of about $1.6 billion it is the largest private development ever in the state and will include 77,250 square feet of retail space, over 64,000 square feet of dining and entertainment venues, 32,942 square feet of convention, meeting, and private function space, and a nightclub with more than 30,000 square feet of floor space.
Wynn Resorts will be located in Everett, Massachusetts at 1 Horizon way. With all the excitement and entertainment a casino fan could ask for and the fact it will create over 4,000 more jobs, I personally am looking forward to Wynn’s grand opening. I will be there, sitting at the poker table. See you there. I am all in!
