With Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker clearing the way for sports betting at the states major casinos in August, Encore Boston Harbor patrons will be able soon to place bets both online and in-person at the casino’s WynnBET Sports Bar.
According to WynnBET staff, the bar’s betting option is on track to be available sometime in December.
For Chelsea resident Wilver Vasquez, the newly-added attraction is just in time for the football season.
“It has the potential to be great with their setup. They have food there (Shake Shack & Italian Gelato), a full-service bar, and they already have lots of windows to bet from,” said Vasquez.
“I’m 1000% more inclined to hit up Encore now. With their large assortment of TV’s and dozens of recliner chairs, it’s a great location to catch a big game.”
The popular sports bar at Encore is open daily noon-2 a.m.
