Mohegan Sun, Wynn make their pitches to the Mass. Gaming Commission

The two competing companies vying for the right to build a brand new resort and casino in the Boston area pitched a pair of dueling presentations on Wednesday before the Massachusetts Gaming Commission at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center in Boston.
Competing over an area referred to by the Gaming Commission as “Region A,” Mohegan Sun and Wynn Resorts hope to be given the opportunity to be the only casino in the general Boston/northeast area. MGM Springfield represented the lone applicant out west in “Region B,” hoping to build a new $800 million casino in Springfield.
Mohegan Sun was represented by Mitchell Etess, chief executive of the Connecticut-based company, made their 90-minute presentation first featuring testimonials, professionally-produced music videos, backed by cheers from union workers and Revere senior citizens in the audience. Mohegan Sun is looking to begin construction on a resort/casinoto be based out of Revere. Etess claimed that the company would bring “old fashioned New England know-how” to the project.
“We have the wow this market wants and what Massachusetts deserves,” said Etess.
Wynn Resorts’ presentation was pitched by resort/casino magnate Steven Wynn. Wynn attacked the Mohegan Sunpresentation, referring to their proposed project as a “three-star” resort whiles his would be a “five-star” telling the commission that “we don’t give a damn about Connecticut.”
“We’re their worst nightmare,” said Wynn. “They don’t want us paying 25 percent of tax on table winnings when they pay nothing in Connecticut.”
Standing in the way of Mohegan Sun’s is the Feb. 25 referendum following a vote against the proposed suffolk downsproject from East Boston and a vote of approval in Revere last year. The initial plan was to have the complex based out of both cities but the commission allowed Mohegan Sun to move forward with a Revere-only project on 42 acres of Suffolk Downs, who will retain the role of landlord should the project be approved by Revere voters and the gaming commission in the spring.

Both presentations emphasized the revenue that the resort/casinos would bring to their respective cities, along with the expected construction and permanent jobs as a result. Each representative claimed that their project would be more successful than his opponent’s.
The commission is expected to award the sole gaming license for the northeast region in May.
