The newest casino coming to the Wynn Resorts brand has finally been given an opening date, after the company's executives confirmed the timeframe with the Massachusetts Gaming Commission.
The Boston Harbor Casino is set to open in June 2019, and construction is underway. By the end of the project, more than 4,000 workers will have been employed in the project. The casino is set to be constructed and operated from Everett, Massachusetts, which is just outside the city boundaries of Boston.
The construction comes after a legal battle from the city of Somerville, who claimed the casino would impact traffic and cause poor air quality. Courts ruled in favor of the casino, and construction started soon after.
Wynn Resorts was founded in 2002 and oversees four casino properties: the Wynn Las Vegas, Wynn Macau, Wynn Palace Macau, and Encore at Wynn Las Vegas.
