First here is the link to the website: Caesars at Suffolk Downs

I've never been to Boston, though it is on a list of places I want to visit. With a Caesars there, I might have more incentive in the future....

It amazes me the plans they have for this place. I guess if you're going to dream big, DREAM BIG! A 200,000 Sq. Ft Casino (!), 4000-5000 Slot machines and 200 Table Games. This sounds more like a vision for a new Macau casino, though if they get the license, it would be the only way to go. As a travel destination, the Caesars moniker should fit well, though it's kind of ironic they aren't going with Horseshoe, being a racetrack. Maybe it offends some of the horses...

Anyways, it appears nothing is set in stone; they still have to vie for a license, though it's hard to think they wouldn't get it. My question is, where is Caesars going to get the money to invest in a $1 billion dollar casino?? Maybe that's why they sold off Harrah's St Louis and they think the 33% of Horseshoe Cleveland will be enough to float them...

This would be interesting given the current casino situation in New England. There is Foxwoods and Mohegan which are both huge, but there are currently no casinos in Massachusetts, so this could steal a lot of business from Foxwoods, which is already screwed, and Mohegan, who is doing better. I know living in Boston myself I'd happily go to a Caesers property, and maybe even play a game with slightly worse rules, than drive 2 hours each way (if there is no traffic which is rare) to go to the CT Indian casinos. That's close to 50 bucks in gas in my Jeep, with bi-monthly trips to the casino, which is about what I would plan to do once I start working fulltime, I'd have an extra 1200 dollars. I'm sure there are a lot of players in the same boat. There are no real casinos in New Hampshire or Vermont either, so there would be some travelers as well.
