Wynn Resorts’ Encore Boston Harbor casino has announced a drop in prices amidst declining VIP visits. The casino operator said that the high prices aimed at VIPs as keeping the local regulars at bay.
At a meeting of the Massachusetts Gaming Commission (MGC), Brian Gullbrants, president of Wynn’s Encore Boston Harbor casino, confirmed that they are slashing the prices of its table minimum wagers from $50 to $15. Also, to attract more visitors, the casino would not charge any parking fees from visitors who parked their own vehicles.
Recently, the casino had introduced a series of concessions to attract more visitors to the venue. While the casino has offered free parking, it also added free bus service and discounted ferry travel for all visitors.
Moreover, customers who sign up for Wynn’s Red Card loyalty program will now be able to take free buses to the casino to and from three Massachusetts locations – Millbury, Rockland, and Gillette Stadium in Foxborough –as well as Londonderry, New Hampshire. Seats aren’t guaranteed for travelers taking advantage of the complimentary bus service. Red Card members who want to reserve will need to pay the regular $7 fare.
The Encore Boston Harbor Casino posted $175.8 million in operating revenues for the three months to Sept. 30. It was also the first full quarter of operations for the newly opened casino.
