BOSTON (AP) — The Massachusetts Gaming Commission's investigative unit has found Wynn Resorts suitable to open a resort casino in Everett.
The commission wasn't planning to take a final vote Monday, but the recommendation is another hurdle Wynn has cleared as it seeks to win the one eastern Massachusetts casino license allowed under the 2011 casino law.
The commendation comes after four commission members signed off on a revised real estate deal for the proposed casino.
It also comes after Las Vegas-based Caesars filed suit against Commission Chair Stephen Crosby for allegedly failing to disclose a potential conflict of interest in a timely manner.
Caesars had been a partner of the Suffolk Downs horse track in a resort casino bid, but it withdrew in October over concerns raised during the background check by commission staff.
