If everything goes according to the plan as approved this week by the Massachusetts Gaming Commission, Wynn Boston Harbor Casino will be opening on or around June 29.
Thus, will end an extraordinary closure of the casino which began on March 15 when the Coronavirus began hitting us with full force.
Since March 15 neither the casino nor the Encore Hotel has produced a dime of revenue.
BOSTON - Steve Wynn, the gambling mogul seeking to build a $2 billion casino on the Mystic River in Everett, says the opening date is now likely May 2019. Jun 23, 2019 Everett Casino is renamed Encore Boston Harbor (opens summer 2019) May 1, 2018 - Due to the allegations against Steve Wynn, the company decided to rebrand the Wynn Boston Harbor.
The hotel will not be reopening on the 29th, according to Wynn company officials.
The hotel may reopen but on a limited basis, according to company reports.
The casino however will be reopening with a full litany of social distancing and hygienic requirements.
Temperatures will be taken. Hand washers will be everywhere. All employees will be wearing masks.
It is expected that many customers will do the same although the requirement is not absolute.
It is not yet entirely clear which restaurants will be reopening and in what capacity.
The buffet, which has been reopened in Las Vegas, will not be reopened here.
In the casino itself, card games have been eliminated and many other table games have been introduced.
Ending card games eliminated the need for dealers.
They have all been laid off.
With $3.4 billion in liquid assets, or enough to last the company for 1 1⁄2 years at the present burn rate, Wynn company president Matt Maddox is confident the comeback will be strong and over time, everything will come back to normal.
“We are confident that travel and tourism will recover in both the US and China, and our industry leading assets, fortress balance sheet and talented team members position the company to thrive in the years ahead,” Maddox affirmed.
The casino operator posted operating revenue of $953.7m for the period ending 31 March, a fall of 42.3 percent compared to the same period in 2019.
Wynn closed its Strip operations on 17 March. In Las Vegas, Q1 operating revenues were $323.8m, a 19.3 percent decrease from $401m for the first quarter of 2019. Operating revenues at Encore Boston Harbor came in at $140.9m.
In Asia, the company’s subsidiary Wynn Macau reported a nearly $154.2m net loss for the first quarter.
Wynn’s Macau interests generate about $75% of the company’s income. The closing of Beijing because of a recurrence of the virus will impact business in Macau which is a new worry for Wynn Resorts.
With air travel and tour- ism to Boston remaining extremely slim and limited, it is difficult to predict how the casino reopening will go.
Company officials in statements to Wynn employees say they are raring to go, a sentiment shared by a great many employees who have been paid by the company throughout the ordeal.
It is believed that pent up demand for customers to go out again and to gamble will
be enough to bring respectable crowds back to the casino.
As of Tuesday, Wynn stock was traded at $92.00.
Its 52 week high was $153.00. The 52 week low, $35.00.
The dividend has been suspended.
The market cap, that is, the value of the company’s stock in the hands of all its shareholders is about $10 billion.
Wynn presently owes the city of Everett for in lieu of tax payments – an amount believed to be about $12 million.
It is expected that money will shortly be paid to the city.
The city will be without substantial income generated by hotel room fees for the near future.

Getting to Know Wynn Boston Harbor
The Wynn Boston Harbor resort is going to be huge with a 24 story hotel that is being created in the likeness of other Wynn properties such as Wynn Las Vegas and Encore. There will be several choices for food and beverage along with entertainment and shopping. A harborwalk is being created along the water front so guests can enjoy the beauty of the Mystic River. The construction of the venue is creating around 4,000 temporary employment positions while the casino will offer the same amount once operational, but in different positions.
Wynn Resorts the Top Choice
The Gaming Commission of the state had decided that Wynn Resorts was the right fit when trying to decide on a casino developer for the new gaming venue to be created in the Greater Boston area. Operators who were in the running but not chosen include Mohegan Sun and Suffolk Downs. Wynn Resorts was given a license for the gaming venue in 2014 but was unable to begin construction due to legal fights in court as there was much opposition to the project in Everett.
Cities near Everett, including Somerville and Boston, have been opposed to the project, arguing that construction of the gambling resort will bring more harm than good. Traffic as well as an increase in crimes are major concerns of those who are opposed. Wynn Resorts was able to prevail and has moved forward with the project. However, now it will take much longer to complete, with opening set for 2019, as long as construction takes place as expected.

The operator has to maintain the requirements that have been set via the licensing agreement with the state as well as pay certain monetary amounts to Everett as it is the host city as well as surrounding cities to be able to make surrounding municipalities feel better about the project.
