Blackjack and craps (from what I have heard with those who partake) are not at all favorable at the Wynncore.

As for baccarat it is the BEST place. Oh no! Baccarat!!!!!!! Only betting joint to allow me to stop the shoe and begin a new one when I want to. Good or bad. Supervisor and the dealer gave me weird looks once when the shoe gave me +16 units in a roll. Oh no!!!! I won money!!! Nooooo!!!! How can that be????? Anyways, that hilarious WTF kind of look by everyone around was very memorable.

I don't know if this would happen in Everett but in Vegas I was given this privilege. Doesn't happen all the time but during the early wee mornings when I am the only one playing.

From the looks of things Wynn Everett would be a pretty awesome place to visit outside of Vegas. The North East casino scene is not very welcoming and friendly in my opinion. Especially AC and CT. PA is nice but the quality of the patrons are very questionable.


I played craps at Wynncore once and it was fine. There are fewer rules to tweak at craps to make it bad (as opposed to BJ). Obviously they can limit the odds, charge commission up front on the 4/10, and pay double on BOTH the 2/12 field. But the only one of those that impacts my playing style is the odds.

The one time I played, odds were standard strip 3/4/5. It very well could have changed since then. If the Everett location (if it's ever built) offers 3/4/5 odds or better I will probably play occasionally. Although honestly it would probably be better if I stayed away. I had to make a rule for myself in WA that I couldn't play craps in my home state, lest I become a problem gambler.

I never touched craps before so my knowledge of the game is extremely limited. But what I do know is the folks who play it are really up in arms in terms of the change of payout on one or some of the outcomes. This change was very recent like a few months ago. If enough people raised hell maybe Wynn would revert back to the old pay out structure. Who knows. The Encore side in 2011 limited to only five free hands at their two low limit Bac tables and many folks raised major hell. A week or two later it was back to unlimited free hands.

There was one that said that. It was a trip report from someone who stayed at Encore and didn't like having to go to Wynn for his tiles. Maybe 3 months ago? Less?

Thought I saw that- Well anyway as if three weeks ago that had multiple tables at Wynn and encore as well. Maybe they reinstalled them or maybe they added it because it was close to the new year of the monkey and the Chinese New Year

The mayors of Somerville, Boston and Revere are a bunch of low hanging fruit sour grapes.


I was a Somerville resident when the mayor was raising hell about the additional traffic through Somerville because of the new casino. I understand his position but traffic SUCKS in this entire metro area. I don't think the casino is really going to make it much worse. So thankful that his objections were thrown out.

So, I live about 6 miles from the proposed Wynn site.


I have moved since this post, but currently my commute to work on the train takes me directly by the construction site! Despite knowing about this casino in the past, I literally didn't realize until yesterday that the construction I had been idly glancing at for the past 8ish months was the new casino. I'll try to snap a picture and post it up sometime this week to show the progress. Sadly the train that departs near my home is across the water from the site, so while I *can* get there on public transit, it will require a transfer to a local bus route.

Honestly, I don't care that much. It would be kind of cool to have a big casino right here, but Wynn sucks. Almost all 6:5 blackjack.


I am waiting with bated breath to see what the BJ odds will be at the new casino. I would bet on 6:5 since they have no competition and based on their Vegas properties. I would be willing to wager on it...I would take "100% 6:5" at even odds I think. Conceivably I could see a high-limit area at 3:2.

I knew what casino this was, but unless you specify it when looking it up, you'll get the actress instead. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wynn_Everett

If possible, please change the title of the thread to "Wynn Boston Harbor."

Good call, I had meant to also make that request.
