This is from April 2019
Steve Wynn Could Soon Be Banned From Wynn Resorts Casinos, CEO Matt Maddox Found Suitable in Nevada
https://www.casino.org/news/steve-wynn-could-soon-be-banned-from-all-wynn-resorts-casinos
Should Steve Wynn try and step foot on a property owned by the casino empire he founded 17 years ago, he might be quickly escorted off the premises by security personnel.

but the new news is that the NV Gaming Control Board is considering revoking Wynn's gaming license and Black Book banning him from all Nevada casinos:
Nevada Regulator Seeks to Ban Steve Wynn From Stateís Casino Industry
Board urges that former executiveís status as a person suitable to hold a casino license be revoked, asserting that his conduct has damaged the stateís gambling business
https://www.wsj.com/articles/nevada-regulator-seeks-to-ban-steve-wynn-from-states-casino-industry-11571166499
so that Wynn may join the ranks of Darkov in being 86'ed from casinos. But not in riding the bus TO the casinos.

Nothing like a publicity bandwagon. Lost amongst all this is one salient fact: What earth did he do to be deserving of such universal condemnation?
Pedophelia? Tax evasion? Rigging slot machines? Murder? Torture? Inflicting a hangnail on some girl? Stealing from the Toke Fund? Chaining his dealers to their tables? Poisoning the EDR slop? LSD in the Bloody Mary fountain?

Steve wynn's eyesight is so bad I think he should have went with this defense. "I am blind, I thought she was my wife."
At my age, a "Life In Prison" sentence is not much of a deterrent.

Wynn could fit into the category of "ugly men with money and power who abuse their authority over women." Not every power broker in Vegas does that though, for example Sheldon Adelson seems to be content with screwing over his contractors and tenants.

Adelson (and his buddy Trump) are routinely sued for withholding payments to their contractors. Another game Adelson plays is trying to force out his tenants in high earning spots such as casino nightclubs and restaurants, in an effort to take over the businesses for the casino to run in-house.

Still, I think it's funny to think about how the VIP lounges at the Wynn/Encore wouldn't bother to ask Steve Wynn to see the star on his tower suite key (star indicates RFB status) like they do the rest of us, instead they'd just give him the boot.

The link says:

LAS VEGASóSteve Wynn should be banned from Nevadaís casino industry because of his alleged sexual misconduct against former employees, according to a state regulatorís filing on Monday.

And goes on to say:

damaged the reputation of the state's gambling industry

So they are going to put his name in the Black Book where Tony Spilotro was? Kind of an over reaction.

Steve Wynn is being sued by the US Justice Department for failing to register as a foreign agent. The Justice Dept is claiming that at the same time Wynn was on the Republican National Committee, he was also working for the Chinese Communists Party in asking the then-current administration to not allow enemies of the CCP to remain in the US.
Wynn and his lawyers say he did nothing wrong.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

Maybe the Wynn will go back to 3/4/5 odds for craps. I don't know of any other strip casinos that have lower maximums

I for one have wondered about him.

His rise from being a nobody to casino developer / owner/ impresario seemed surprisingly easy.

I could never understand why E. Parry Thomas, the Mormon president of the Bank of Las Vegas, took him under his wing and helped make him the mogul he became.

Whatever, his accomplishments have been amazing and I gotta tip my hat to the guy.

Back in the 60s it was easy to make big money deals in Vegas through Howard Hughes' confederates.

You could have bought Summerlin. Yes, you.

I played craps at the Wynn last week. It was 3/4/5.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

I didn't know that they switched back to 3/4/5...haven't been there in a while

I always thought that going to double odds was a dumb move that would cost them business. I wouldn't stay there due to that rule

I tried playing 3X, 4X, 5X on a double odds max bubble craps machine. $10 on the DP and $12 on the 6/8 odds, $15 on the 5/9 odds, and $20 on the 4/10 odds. So I'll win $10 on the DP and $10 on the odds. It's possible to win 10 DP odds bets in a row, but those come-out 7-11's seem unavoidable even while trying to throw 3's and 4's.
I'll switch to the Do side if I lose 2 come-out rolls or lose my DP with odds bet, then bet 1X odds on the PL. I'll switch back to the DP on a new shooter (me).
