The Encore Boston Harbour Casino is the first full five star casino resort in the US’s painfully hip New England. Not only is this new arrival ruffling feathers with its top class cache but it’s landed in the midst of Boston’s new and very desirable Harbourwalk Development. How very chichi.
The Encore Boston is a new gem in the Wynn Group of Casino's already heavy crown of establishments. And it should be - this casino hotel development is rumoured to have cost $2.6 billion to build.
Unsurprisingly the Encore has a perfect setting, some seriously glitzy looks, a solid gambling offer to spoil you with- and that’s before we even start on the eateries.......
It’s hard to miss the shimmering bronze building which thrusts through the Boston skyline from a former industrial zone overlooking Boston’s famed Mystic River, part of the charming River Charles.
This place isn’t on the small size with gambling taking place on the 210,000 square feet of pure casino heaven. You can take a break from the all too alluring gaming to recoup your energy at the massive hotel, a part of the complex.
Table game lovers will find themselves ensconced in a glamourous table games salon located upstairs from the fantasy- land slot hall. Here amongst fancy furnishing you can make yourself at home to play on the impressive 144 table games including the king of them all, roulette. Other distractions for your gaming pleasure include craps, blackjack and baccarat.
But why play roulette in a first class gaming salon when you can take your gaming alfresco?
The Encore Boston Harbour has gone the whole hog and located table games on a fancy terrace that takes in the Mystic River. Roulette “en plein” never felt so luxurious.
Tables are set amongst giant TV screens which broadcast live sporting events and more to keep you gaming and relaxing in equal measure.
If you’re amongst those lucky gamblers who roll high and like to try their luck in more private surroundings, then there are six smart private gaming rooms. There are also high limit rooms if you want to take your spending and winning sky high.
For those who love a touch of slot play, or simply want a taste of something new, prepare yourself for a royal spoiling. The slot hall is located in a lavish room with tall embossed ceilings and a carpet that is on the unforgettably loud scale.
Slot enthusiasts will be excited to learn that this newly opened casino has upward of 3,011 electronic games to sate their slot appetite. As with many new slots, these games are coinless.
And of course, as with most American casinos, there’s a super scale poker room bursting with plenty of action and 88 tables.
Now if you’re exhausted by the grandeur and gaming, then fear not, prepare for an oversized dose of tranquillity at the world –class spa. Or if you want to sweat your way back to winning form there’s even a fitness centre. What more could you need after 24 hour a day gaming?
And, for those hungry roulette lovers you’re spoilt for choice with a dizzying 15 eateries where you can join a smart buffet or eat all the Italian food you could dream of in Sinatra’s, or go local with New England’s mouth-watering seafood at The Oyster Bar. If you can think of a dish, then there’s probably a swanky eatery to cater for it. This place has tried to pander to our every whim.
Make sure you make time to grab a cocktail in the Centre Bar which is located in the midst of the gaming action while you ponder on your next game. And to celebrate your winning streak there’s even a club - the mysteriously titled Memoire - where you can make merry on the dance floor with live djs.
Wynn’s Encore Boston Harbour has cut no corners. This is gambling on a massive and opulent scale. And, there is a wealth of table games including roulette. Bravo!
