Casino mogul Steve Wynn says he doesn’t care about a rival casino being developed south of Boston by the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe.

Wynn made the comment Tuesday during a rare public visit to Massachusetts as the Cape Cod-based tribe pitched its own casino plan to state gambling regulators.

Wynn said he met with area mayors and lawmakers to discuss his proposed Boston-area casino, tentatively titled the Wynn Boston Harbor.

Wynn’s project on the Everett waterfront had been expected to break ground this spring but has been put on hold pending a series of legal challenges.

Wynn said he had no plans to meet or negotiate with Somerville, the neighboring city challenging the state environmental permit for his $1.7 billion casino.
