Steve Wynn: Loved in Las Vegas, hated in Boston

Las Vegas casino magnate Steve Wynn and Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh are at odds over Wynn’s plans to open a casino in the Boston suburb of Everett, Mass.

Steve Wynn earned widespread respect in Las Vegas for creating some of the Strip’s most successful resorts, but his plans to expand his business to the East Coast have encountered serious resistance there.

Wynn Resorts last fall won approval from Massachusetts gaming regulators to build a casino on the site of a former chemical plant in Everett, near Boston. If built, it would be Wynn Resorts’ only U.S. casino outside Las Vegas. (The company also operates in Macau.)

Although the $1.7 billion project already survived a failed ballot initiative to ban casinos in the state, numerous other obstacles remain.

Boston and two nearby cities, Revere and Somerville, filed separate lawsuits challenging regulators’ decision to give Wynn the only casino license for eastern Massachusetts. Boston’s objections to the project have been particularly intense; some elected officials there believe the Massachusetts Gaming Commission unfairly favored Wynn during his application for the casino license.
