Online Sports Betting On The Way

By Josh Resnek

Encore Casino and Hotel continues to rack up great numbers as July revenues came in way over June by almost $4.7 million.

July’s numbers continued a winning streak in revenues that has dominated Encore for the past five to six months while the state’s two other casinos are appearing to muddle along with numbers that are not changing very much from month to month.

Slots at Encore brought in a staggering $35 million in July, a whopping $3.6 million more than was generated in June, according to the Massachusetts Gaming Commission, which released the figures as usual on the 15th of August.

Table games games were up $1 million over June at $29.7 million.

The strong gaming figures indicate the continued success of Encore in identifying its customer base and delivering what its customers want, according to casino analysts.

As good as these figures are and have been, gaming revenues are expected to go over the top when online betting is finally available.

Encore Boston Harbor reported weaker than usual revenues at its Everett complex in May.

The total take for table games and slot machines was down almost $6 million from April – which was a banner month.

In April, Encore took in $63.7 million as compared with May’s $58 million.

The Spring take was not as hearty as the late winter spurt Encore experienced.

Some casino analysts claim inflation could have been the cause of the weaker showing.

Tourist visitation to Boston is not what it used to be. Plane flights have grown expensive as the cost for jet fuel has soared.

Conventions and business meetings have plunged in the aftermath of the Pandemic, when much of that business was simply cancelled out and the casino closed for several months.
