Encore Boston Harbor has finally assembled the complete set of Massachusetts major league sports teams after adding the Commonwealth’s MLB franchise to its collection. The Wynn Resorts-operated casino in Everett announced Wednesday that it has inked a multi-year partnership with the Boston Red Sox.
The casino already had similar relationships with the NFL’s New England Patriots, the NBA’s Boston Celtics, the NHL’s Boston Bruins, and MLS’s New England Revolution.
casino’s sportsbook already has the dubious distinction of taking illegal bets
Legal sports betting has only recently touched down in Massachusetts, with Encore Boston Harbor’s retail sportsbook WynnBET taking its first bets earlier this year. Despite its infancy, the casino’s sportsbook already has the dubious distinction of taking illegal bets on NCAA women’s college games twice in one month.
Wednesday, nevertheless, cast Encore Boston Harbor in a more flattering light, as it also announced $25,000 donations to community programs attached to the Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins, and Patriots franchises.
