A. Richard Schuster presented Encore Boston Harbor with a class-action suit for cheating last week. However, the Massachusetts Gaming Commission disagreed. Consequently, a preliminary investigation found that Encore Boston Harbor’s casino operations were compliant with state gambling laws. According to CasinoNewsDaily, “Schuster said that while playing blackjack at the recently opened casino, he expected to be paid out at 3-2 odds. But, he was eventually paid out at 6-5 odds. Usually, traditional blackjack pays players out at 3-2. However, under Massachusetts’ gaming laws local casinos are allowed to pay players at 6-5 odds as long as they fulfill certain other regulatory requirements.”
John J. James has been named the new President and CEO of Foxwoods Resort Casino. James currently serves as Chief Operating Officer for Morongo Casino Resort & Spa located in Cabazon, California. He will be taking the helm at Foxwoods beginning August 12. James succeeds Felix D. Rappaport, whose untimely death in June of 2018 left Foxwoods without a CEO. As a result, Chairman Rodney Butler took over as the resort’s interim CEO shortly thereafter. James has over 25 years of highly successful Native American gaming resort operations experience. Thus, James is uniquely positioned to lead Foxwoods into its next evolution.
