New Casino Slots Opening Ad in Globe, Not Herald

June 25, 2015

From our Local Daily DisADvantage desk

Plainridge Park – the “first and only” (so far) casino in Massachusetts – opened yesterday in the aptly named town of Plainville. (And no, we didn’t know where Plainville is, either.)

But yes, the gambling hell (as Raymond Chandler would call it) did take out a full-page ad in yesterday’s Boston Globe to celebrate the big event.

But not, interestingly, in the Boston Herald.

Not to stereotype or anything, but if you’re trolling for slots parlor habitués, wouldn’t you bet on the free-spending readers of the thirsty local tabloid over the tight-fisted readers of the stingy local broadsheet?

Just askin’.


Wynn Everett: No Globe Readers Need Apply

October 16, 2014

Wynn Resorts – which won the casino bake-off with Mohegan Sun last month – looks to be quickly embedding itself in the local economy. The proposed Everett gambling hell – sorry, hall (tip o’ the pixel to Raymond Chandler) – ran this ad in today’s Boston Herald to promote the upcoming Wynn Resorts Vendor & Career Information Sessions.

Average salaries over $50,000? (Is Steve Wynn’s factored in?) $120 million per annum on goods and services? I’d take all of that with a shaker of salt, yeah.

Meanwhile, no such golden opportunities are available crosstown at the Boston Globe. But maybe the Globe set could find gainful employment at the new UniQlo opening tomorrow at the Northshore Mall. Glenn Howerton, Actor/Producer certainly did.
