Bentleys, Beemers, and Cedes? Not talking about the set that play the lotto every week. They are NH and Mass people who live near the border. And yes, perhaps some summer tourists staying at campgrounds, bored. Convenience is everything today. Maine always, always, always does things at the minimum. You know what I'm talking about. The best location for a Vegas scaled and styled casino in this general area would be, or would have been, Hampton Beach. No sales tax and an easy drive from the Boston, Portland, and Manchester metro areas. Although, OOB across from the train station would have been sweet (replacing that run-down section), which is an easy train ride from North Station. The Encore in Boston will bring in the BIGGER money, which includes the Chinese as well as high profile sports celebrities, who attract for events and clubs. Winter 2019-20 in Boston will be the place to be for entertainment. Have you looked at the event schedule at C.I.A. lately? Enough said. (Although Merrill Auditorium has a nice schedule.) Portland's "dream team" for the ultimate, year round entertainment complex? Justin Alfond, Lauren Wayne and the Bissell Brothers. Give them a few hundred million and they would come up with something for winter tourism.You are wrong about Oxford Casino. I see tons of cars with out-of-state plates in the parking lot.
