Revenues rose at the Encore Boston Harbor dramatically from January to February by $7 million – a remarkable uptick.
Slot and game table revenues totaled about $40M compared with last month’s figure of $33M.
The expansion of hours and pent-up energy among gamblers is believed to be the catalyst for the huge 30-day jump.
The lessening danger of the virus and vaccinations are also apparently the extraordinary rise in revenues.
The jump in revenues came despite continued COVID-19 social distancing and health safety restrictions.
The reintroduction of craps announced last week by the Massachusetts Gaming Commission is likely to aid in another jump in revenues during the next 30 days.
