Encore Boston Harbor Casino Allowed To Serve Alcohol Until 4 AM In Everett


STREET BETWEEN MARKET AND PARSONS. BOSTON POLICE ARE ASKING PEOPLE TO AVOID THE AREA UNTIL CREWS CAN FIX THE PROBLEM. ALSO CAN TONIGHT, THE RESORT IS NOT TELLING THE CASINO AND IT WILL BE READY TO OPEN IN JUST A FEW WEEKS. THE GRAND OPENING WILL BE JUNE 23. TODAY, THE GAMING COMMISSION APPROVED LAST CALL FOR GAMBLERS. LISA MUELLER IS LIVE TONIGHT WITH MORE. LUISA, THAT IS GOING TO BE LATE AT NIGHT OR EARLY IN THE MORNING, DEPENDING ON HOW YOU LOOK AT IT. Reporter: I GUESS IT DEPENDS ON HOW LATE YOU PARTY BUT THE APPROVAL IS TO SERVE ALCOHOL UNTIL ORAL CLOCK A.M.. NOW, THE CASINO SAYS THEY ARE GOING TO HAVE THREE TECH DAYS THAT RESTAURANTS OPERATING FULL BEFORE THE COMMISSION GETS INTO THE FINAL GO-AHEAD. IT IS CRUNCH TIME FOR CONSTRUCTION WORKERS AND THE RACE TO REMOVE THE YELLOW TAPE IS ON. ON WEDNESDAY, THE PRESIDENT OF ONCOR BOSTON HARBOR CONFIRMED IT WILL OPEN ON JUNE 23 AFTER MGM ABANDONED TALKS WITH WIND AND RESORTS ABOUT THE POSSIBLE SALE OF THE $2.6 BILLION CASINO. EXPECT THEY SAID WE ARE REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO WELCOMING THE PUBLIC TO THE FACILITY. I THINK THEY WILL BE AMAZED. Reporter: SOME THINKING THE OPENING WOULD BE DELAYED AND SPARKING FEARS THAT THE CASINO IN SPRINGFIELD WOULD HAVE TO CLOSE BECAUSE STATE LAW PREVENTS THE COMPANY FROM HOLDING ONE CASINO LICENSE BUT THE MASSACHUSETTS GAMING COMMISSION ADDRESSED THE ISSUE AT TODAY’S MEETING. DISCUSSIONS HAVE BEEN CEASED , TO BE CLEAR, AT NO TIME WAS THERE A PROPOSED TRANSACTION PENDING BEFORE THE COMMISSION. Reporter: FOR ONCOR, ANOTHER WIN. 4-1. Reporter: PERMISSION TO SERVE ALCOHOL FROM 8:00 A.M. UNTIL 4:00 A.M.. DRINKS ONLY FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE GAMBLING. GIVEN THE DENSITY AND THE SIZE OF THIS OPERATION, PURPOSE IS TO HAVE A CONVERSATION SIX MONTHS OUT AFTER OPENING. Reporter: DURING THOSE LATE HOURS, ONCOR SAYS IT IS PREPARED TO KEEP PATRONS SAFE. WE GIVE FULL AUTHORITY TO OUR EMPLOYEES TO BE SURE THAT IF THEY SEE EVEN THE REMOTE POSSIBILITY THAT SOMEONE SHOULD NOT BE APPROPRIATELY DRIVING A MOTOR VEHICLE AND THEY ARE ATTEMPTING TO LEAVE THE PROPERTY, WE ARE MORE THAN HAPPY TO OFFER THEM A LIFT HOME. Reporter: ONCOR STILL HAS UNTIL MAY 31 TO PAY A $35 MILLION FINE IMPOSED ON THEM BY THE COMMISSION AFTER EXECUTIVES HELD TO DISCLOSE YEARS OF ACTUAL MISCONDUCT ALLEGATIONS
