The only sportsbook in the immediate Boston area took its first retail wagers on Jan. 31 as WynnBET Sportsbook at Encore Boston Harbor threw open its doors.
Actually located in Everett, and along the Mystic River, the ubiquitous Encore is a popular casino destination in Boston and figures to be the same kind of draw with Massachusetts sports betting finally underway.
The Patriots are no longer Super Bowl contenders, but betting on the NFL championship remains one of the most lucrative wagering markets of the year. And WynnBET Sportsbook will open in time.
“(We’re) the only place to place a bet in the Greater Boston area in advance the Super Bowl,” Jenny Holaday, president of Encore Boston Harbor, told CBS News Boston.
Mobile and online betting is expected to debut in March for the massively popular NCAA Tournament, or March Madness as many know it.
