BOSTON, Massachusetts (December 9, 2022) — Following a presentation today by representatives of Encore Boston Harbor (EBH) and a review of the application submitted by Wynn MA, LLC, the Massachusetts Gaming Commission (MGC) voted unanimously to approve the first Category 1 sports wagering operator license in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

The MGC set a goal to launch retail sports wagering at the three casinos in the Commonwealth, which are eligible for Category 1 sports wagering licenses, in January.

EBH now must obtain a certificate of operations and meet additional conditions before bets can be accepted. More information on a universal launch day for retail sports betting will be released in the coming weeks.
