Well it's finally settled and Steve Wynn will be building a new casino here in Massachusetts, just having been awarded the Boston area license. Mohegan Sun and Suffolk Downs lost out for a variety of reasons. In reality Mohegan, having a casino in Connecticut barely an hour away would be slicing its own pie further. At least Wynn has the chance to develop new clientele. Plus he has deeper pockets and better bathroom amenities. The sad part here is the loss of Suffolk Downs. It's been barely hanging on for many years as the locals have urbanized and lost their interest in horse racing. The NO vote from East Boston didn't help. Lots of jobs lost and very soon. However lots of construction and eventually gaming jobs gained when the new casino opens. It won't be a net gain for the State in the end though I bet. Massachusetts is one of the most lottery addicted States in the nation, around $1500 per capita on scratch tickets, Keno, numbers, etc. A portion of that will be lost to the casinos as the economy here sucks, taxes are high and few people have excess discretionary income. Good times in the short term but probably not what anyone promised. Hope for the best though! Plan your 2017 trips now!
