Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against Encore Dismissed by Gaming Commission

By Josh Resnek

A disgruntled gaming customer at the Encore Boston Harbor Casino who filed a lawsuit claiming he was being robbed of his winnings among a flurry of other allegations led to an immediate investigation by the Massachusetts Gaming Commission last week.

The president of Encore Boston Harbor fired back at the lawsuit against the casino before the Massachusetts Gaming Commission Thursday, which claims that customers are being short-changed. “Every single customer gets every dollar and every penny they have coming due to them,” Robert DeSalvio said.

“At no time did we ever round and not give customers back the money that they truly deserved.”

The Massachusetts Gaming Commission agreed.

Following a preliminary investigation, the MGC determined and reported on Thursday last week that Encore Boston Harbor is in compliance with all regulations.

In the words of the Jurassic Park character John Hammond, “We spared no expense,” when talking about the fictional park in the said film, the same can be said about how Wynn has treated its new resort,Encore Boston Harbor.

The resort boast art in every corner your eyes can see, from the Jeff Koons’ mirror-polished stainless-steel stature of Popeye to venetian glass chandeliers and art decorating almost every ceiling surface. A impressive garden with a Preston Bailey carousel made of 83,000 flowers and 11,000 jewels, greets patrons as they enter the resort. The flowers are real and kept up daily.

Thirty Days to a New City

There is about one month remaining before Everett becomes the stepchild of the casino, which will rule in local circles once it gets its doors open.

Everything that was once about the city will become something dominated and controlled by the casino. The casino will come to dominate life in the city.

It is very, very large. It has a life force of its own.

It will be open for business 24/7 everyday of the year.

The mayor becomes a second class citizen when the doors open.

We all become prisoners of the casino and what it is likely to bring – a traffic hassle never before seen in Greater Boston.

When the casino opens

We have learned that casino officials believe as many as 50,000 people will attend a series of opening ceremonies and parties when the casino finally opens. The 50,000 figure may be low.

The opening crowds could number as many as a 100,000 people.

Mind you, that does not mean it is 50K-100K people all at once, but rather, over three days.

Those are big numbers that stretch the imagination.

A giant what if regarding Encore And the future of the casino

The Massachusetts Gaming Commission is beginning Tuesday and ending Thursday three days of long awaited testimony that will lead to a number of possibilities that are all of extraordinary importance to the city of Everett and everyone who owns property here or who has applied for a job at the casino/hotel site almost completed.

These hearings will determine – the decision the MGC makes after hearing testimony for three days – will result in Encore being granted its license neat and clean, no fuss or mess about it.

That is the first possibility and perhaps the most unlikely.

The second is that the license will be granted but with conditionsand a huge fine.

This is entirely possible and bettors say it is the most likely of the outcomes we can outline here on this editorial page.

The third possibility, and considered most remote – but a possibility -is that the MGC will find Encore unsuitable to hold a license for casinogaming in Massachusetts.
