Encore Boston Harbor Poker Room Comparison
With 88 poker tables (including 11 for high stakes and six separate “VIP” tables), the Encore Boston Harbor instantly becomes one of the largest poker rooms in the northeastern United States.
That number is nearly double the amount of poker tables that can be found at the largest Pennsylvania land-based poker room, located inside Parx Casino, five hours away.
It also rivals the approximately 100 tables that are expected at the June 28th poker room re-launch of tribal-based Foxwoods Resort Casino in nearby Mashantucket, Connecticut, while dwarfing the 33 poker tables currently available at the Mohegan Sun near Montville. Both casinos are just under two hours away from the Encore Boston Harbor in Everett, MA — a suburb of Boston.
The allocation of 3,100+ slot machines on the Encore Boston Harbor gaming floor is also competitive with the largest Pennsylvania properties that offer roughly the same number of terminals (Parx, Wind Creek, and the Meadows).
