Encore Boston Harbor's opening follows a period of some
uncertainty for Wynn Resorts. Massachusetts gaming regulators recently called into
question Wynn's ability to retain a gaming license in the state after

This past April, regulators ruled that Wynn Resorts could
hold on to its license but they fined the company $35 million.
