Online ad for Encore dealer training program says “up to” $60K starting salary. Glassdoor has average as $37K, high of $53K. Low is $17K, which I would take as closer to an entry level salary, but probably more than that for Boston.

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

Yes, but it looks like there will be no direct rail service to the casino. A footpath if some kind is planned, probably from near the current Wellington Station on the Orange Line subway. 12 minute cab ride, insist on the Malden Bridge route.

Yeah just over a mile from Wellington Station, 22 minutes or so to walk depending on your pace.

They've been talking about a new pedestrian bridge from Assembly station across the water, which would be faster, more direct, and more pleasant. Haven't heard the latest news on that, but I don't think it's in motion yet. Wynn offered to pitch in some amount for the project, but not the full amount. So the local governments would have to pitch in the rest.

I would imagine a full time dealer will bring in more than $60,000 at Encore Boston.

Salary + tips > $60K for an experienced dealer, sure. Starting salary for a newbie = 60K, don't think so.

Wynn Resorts fined $35M by Massachusetts for misconduct allegations response. http://bit.ly/2J7R367

* Gambling regulators in Massachusetts on Tuesday levied a $35 million fine on Wynn Resorts but allowed the company to keep its state casino license and open its Boston-area resort as planned after executives failed to disclose years of allegations of sexual misconduct against company founder Steve Wynn.

The Massachusetts Gaming Commission also fined CEO Matthew Maddox $500,000 for his “clear failure” to investigate at least one misconduct complaint and required the Nevada company, which also owns properties in Las Vegas and Macau, to be subject to review by an independent firm selected by the state. http://bit.ly/2J7R367

Has anyone on WoV been to the new Encore in Boston?

I would love to make a trip and review the casino but we have a 2 month old new baby at home (in addition to a 2 year old) so can't really get away at the moment. Maybe next summer :D.

Congratulations, Dad (and Mom)! I don't know when I might be in Boston again, but wouldn't that make a fun WoV NE meetup.

I’m planning on going on September 4 most likely. I’m sure it’s the same as the ones in Vegas and Macau I’ve been to, huge, beautiful and flawless.

The poker action is supposed to be great. I had lunch with a 10/25 crusher from 2+2 and that was his destination after the WSOP.
