Regulators: New casino not cheating gamblers out of winnings
BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts gambling regulators say their preliminary investigation shows the new Encore Boston Harbor casino isn't cheating gamblers out of their winnings as a class action lawsuit alleges.
The state's Gaming Commission said Thursday that Wynn Resorts appears to be complying with state gambling regulations for blackjack payouts and is not rounding down payouts from slot machines.
But regulators noted the Everett casino's redemption machines for slot game winnings don't dispense coins. Gamblers must to go to casino cashiers for winnings less than $1.
They suggested the casino provide better signage for customers. Casino officials say they'll consider adding redemption machines that dispense coins, as the state's other two casinos offer.
Joshua Garick, the lawyer who filed the class action suit Monday in Middlesex County Superior Court, didn't immediately respond.
