Everett Casino Renamed Encore Boston Harbor

Wynn Resorts CEO Matt Maddox has announced “Encore Boston Harbor” as the new name for the Everett gaming resort.

The name change is one of several actions taken by Wynn Resorts after allegations of sexual misconduct were filed against Founder Steve Wynn, who has been completely removed from company operations.

These actions include an internal investigation of the company’s awareness and response to the allegations, three new female members added to the board, new and progressive benefits such as paid parental leave, a review of gender equality in pay, and changes in sexual harassment training.

Encore Boston Harbor, a $2.5 billion resort situated along the Mystic River, is expected to open in summer of 2019.
