EVERETT, Mass. — Massachusetts’ third casino is opening near Boston.
Encore Boston Harbor opens Sunday after years of anticipation and controversy .
The $2.6 billion casino, hotel and entertainment complex sits on 33-acres of formerly industrial land along the Mystic River in Everett, Massachusetts.
Casino officials are expecting more than 50,000 visitors Sunday and roughly 8 million annually.
The resort is in a notoriously congested area so officials are urging patrons to use transit options provided by the casino, such as free shuttles from nearby subway stations, local and interstate buses and a water taxi from downtown Boston.
The casino features a 671-room hotel tower, a gambling floor with 3,100 slot machines and 231 table games, 15 bars and restaurants, shops, lavish art displays and a harbour walk. It employs more than 5,000 workers.
