BOSTON - The new Encore Boston Harbor casino raked in nearly $16.8 million in gambling revenue and paid $4.2 million in state taxes in its first week of operation.
That's according to figures released Monday by the Massachusetts Gaming Commission.
The Boston-area's first resort casino opened its doors on June 23. During its highly-publicized first week of operation, the Wynn Resorts-owned facility in Everett reported approximately $9.1 million in revenues from slot machines and $7.7 million from table games.
