Looks like the main outer glass covering in complete. Now they are working on the structure to support the logo, similar to their other resorts I imagine. Sorry for the poor angle on the pic. Thought to take at the last minute as I was going by on the train.

Thanks for the photo and effort. What is the anticipated opening date? Also if you happen to know, what is the status of sports wagering in that liberal state and has Wynn mentioned a sports book if same is allowed etc? Cheers mate.

Projected opening is summer 2019.

I haven't been following the sports wagering rules here. Based on a quick google looks like it could be ready to go next year:

I wonder what sort of mischief the latest crop of M.I.T. boys and girls will unleash upon this casino?

Hopefully some new, unexploited angle.

They're a clever bunch: if anyone can figure it out, they can.

All that ripe fruit dangling in their back yard should prove to be irresistible.

Indeed. I wish I were a good AP. Maybe if I dedicated myself to it, I would be the type of mind to find a new angle on new or existing games. But I'm more of a "follow the instructions" type, hence why I haven't gotten much past card counting in my nascent, mostly over, AP career.

If the BJ games are anything like the Wynncore in Vegas, there won't be much for traditional card counters to attack...I'm sure other opportunities will abound though, as they often do at new casino openings.

Looks like the outside covering of the building is basically done!

(as always, click for full size).

I missed my chance to snap a pic with just the "En" of "Encore" up there. What's fascinating to me is that they are apparently still considering offers to buy the property due to the Wynn scandal while putting the name up there:

Lastly, saw these ads at one of my T stops:

For some reason, my post above didn't bump this onto the recent posts list. Trying one more time...feels like a website bug of some type.

$60K for a dealer job?

No way that's entry level.... right??

Also, anybody know what that sign in Chinese says? Does that have anything to do with the casino?

So when it opens if I buy an Amtrak ticket for Boston I will be going to the correct city this time?
