New England Casino Promotions & Events Left In January

Happy New Year everyone!  It’s a New Year, and a New List of news, promotions and events happening at New England’s Casinos.

SECTIONS BELOW INCLUDE include NEW ENGLAND NEWSGAMBLING PROMOTIONS, EVENTS, & ENTERTAINMENT


SPORTS BETTING ARRIVES IN NEW ENGLAND

Rhode Island, the smallest state in the country, became the eighth state to have sports betting as of November, 2018.  Like horses at the starting gate, a huge line had formed and excitement built until at 3:00pm EST, the Speaker of the House Nicholas Mattiello, Senate President Dominic Ruggerio and John Taylor, executive chairman of Twin River Worldwide Holdings Inc., placed the first sports wagering bets, marking the opening of the Twin River Casino Sports Book in Lincoln RI .  The new Tiverton Casino and Hotel, Twin River Management Group’s other RI casino, opened their sports book in December.

So they could started ASAP and get ahead of other New England casinos, Twin River’s setup is temporary, called “Phase 1″ and is found in the third floor in the simulcast wagering area. This “Phase 1” area will be kept even after the main sports book is completed.  The Main Sports Book will be overlooking the grassy remains of the once vibrant greyhound track.

According to Jeff Moony, Staff Writer at the Providence Journal, “Rhode Island will be poised to go online whenever lawmakers are ready. IGT and William Hill power Rhode Island sports wagering. IGT is behind the computer technology, while William Hill is setting the lines.”

Connecticut has approved sports betting, but won’t start implementation until the next legislative session. Massachusetts will consider sports betting next year. Data collection by the legislature and Massachusetts Gaming Commission may cause long delay, but MGM is lobbying for a quicker change to the legislation.

A Few Important Considerations include

  • The State of Rhode Island takes 51% of the sports betting revenue at the start
  • 32% goes to IGT as vendor operations
  • Only 17% of the revenue generated by sports betting goes to each casino – Twin River or Tiverton
  • The Wicked Good Bar & Grill has been re-tooled to now be the SPORTSBOOK Bar & Grill, a dedicated sports betting venue with over 100 TVs, odds boards, comfortable seating areas, and a full bar and dining menu
  • Bets are now allowed on pro sports and college games, but Rhode Island colleges are not available for wagering.
  • Only pre-game betting is available.  In-game betting will be only be ready when the mobile on-line wagering is in place, and that could be for quite a while.

Still No Third Connecticut Casino

Connecticut’s third casino, a joint project by the Mashantucket Pequot and Mohegan tribes, remains stagnant, and the likelihood of it happening seems slim at the close of 2018.

The tribes cleared the casino’s East Windsor site in the spring but never secured the key federal approvals they needed to start construction. A federal lawsuit, in which the tribes and the state sought to compel the U.S. Department of the Interior to grant the approvals, languished most of the year.

In October, a federal judge ruled that the state and the tribal operators of Foxwoods Resort Casino and Mohegan Sun cannot legally force federal Indian gaming regulators to approve changes to revenue-sharing agreements that give the state a cut of slot machine revenue each year. The state receives 25 percent of slot machine revenue, which translates to hundreds of millions of dollars annually.

A proposal by state Sen. Cathy Osten to get an East Windsor casino built — legislation co-sponsored by much of our area’s local delegation — deserves serious consideration from the General Assembly and Gov.-elect Ned Lamont.

Osten proposes bypassing the U.S. Department of Interior. Interior’s refusal to sign off on current state legislation allowing an East Windsor casino to be jointly operated by the Mohegan and Mashantucket Pequot tribes has stalled the plans. The foot-dragging by Interior appears politically motivated, with lawmakers from Nevada having lobbied the agency on behalf of MGM.

Wynn Suits Dominate Encore Boston Harbor News 

Massachusetts Gaming Commission officials say they would have begun an adjudicatory hearing on the licensing of Wynn Resorts Ltd. by now had it not been for a lawsuit filed by former Chairman and CEO Steve Wynn last month. State commissioners were scheduled to meet in a closed executive session to discuss the state’s legal strategy to fight the lawsuit Wynn filed in Clark County District Court. Wynn’s six-count lawsuit seeks to block the report’s release based on it containing or relying on Steve Wynn’s attorney-client privileged communications from Wynn Resorts’ six-year litigation against former business partner Kazuo Okada.

Meanwhile, Encore Boston Harbor on Wednesday afternoon tweeted that “reservations are coming later this year” to the $2.4 billion gaming resort now under construction in Everett — despite the fact that the approval process is far from complete.

Connecticut’s Mohegan Sun gaming company has said it is willing to buy out Wynn Resorts $2.5 billion Everett casino project. “The Massachusetts Gaming Commission has stated that it will conduct adjudicatory hearings as part of the Wynn Resorts suitability review, and make a determination with regards to the Region A license to operate a resort casino in Everett. Everett Mayor Carlo DeMaria expressed opposition to a sale to Mohegan, the Herald reported, saying the Connecticut company was “not welcome to operate a casino in Everett.”

Controversy has surrounded this casino project.  In September, Sterling Suffolk Racecourse has filed a lawsuit against Wynn alleging that the company cheated its way to being awarded the right to run Encore Boston Harbor in Everett. Sterling argues that the application for the license to run the casino in Revere  — submitted by its partner, Mohegan Sun Casino — was superior to Wynn’s.

HAve we reached the Saturation Point?

Connecticut studies, ironically made by MGM, suggested another casino in southwestern CT would be a plausible candidate for casino expansion, as Mohegan & Pequot tribes started plans for their joint casino near the border of MGMSpringfield. In his article “Growing Gambling Facilities In The Northeast U.S.: Is There A Market For Them All?, Elliott R. Morss provides tables of gaming progression in select casinos, including Wynn & MGM. The article implies that the survival of both Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods is in jeopardy.  Why? The old casino model of 80/20 – that’s 80% from gambling revenue and 20% from entertainment, dining, etc., – is changing to a more “integrated resort development” in new casinos.  Both Wynn & MGM are building newer casinos in New England with that in mind.

However, this is the same story we’ve heard for years?  When Maine added a second casino in Oxford. Massachusetts excluded the Brockton Southeast Gaming License due to the Wampanoag Casino in Taunton and the many stages of flux it was in.  Two large casinos in Southeastern Mass. was considered too much by the Massachusetts Gaming Commission.

And, yet, Massachusetts in now looking into opening up that license again, since the “First Light” casino resort of the Wampanoags is close to receiving its last rights. MGM still wants open bidding in CT for it’s Bridgeport incentive. Sports betting in Rhode Island has opened another enthusiastic group of gamblers, making the pie now larger with additional gamblers.

Saturation?  We’ll see.  Revenues in recent months have declined in all but one casino in New England – Oxford Casino & Hotel. We will have to wait and see what 2019 will bring to the Northeast gambling action.
