Nevada gambling board after Wynn

Nevada regulator to probe allegations against Steve Wynn

Dozens of women, including Wynn Resorts employees, are accusing Las Vegas Casino Mogul Steve Wynn of sexual misconduct.

In a Wednesday statement, MA gaming commissioners said that they were not informed about the above-mentioned settlement when they were reviewing Wynn Resorts' suitability to operate a casino in the state.

The commission, which met publicly Wednesday, confirmed a Wall Street Journal report of a $7.5-million settlement with a manicurist who says Wynn demanded sex from her.

"After completing our review, the Nevada Gaming Control Board is conducting an investigation with regard to the allegations of sexual misconduct involving Steve Wynn", Harris said. The $2.4-billion Wynn Boston Harbor is now under construction and is on schedule to open doors in June 2019.

Wynn, 76, has denied the allegations, calling them "preposterous".

Commission Chairman Stephen Crosby said that any decision, including possibly revoking the license, will be based on facts gleaned during the commission's ongoing probe.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board, which regulates Wynn's flagship properties on the Las Vegas Strip, has announced that it, too, would open an investigation into the allegations.

Hilton Hotels Corp. planned to open a casino-hotel in Atlantic City, N.J., but state regulators denied the company's license, saying some connected to the project had ties to organized crime.

Wynn, who owns about 12 per cent of Wynn Resorts, has an agreement with Elaine, who owns just under 10 per cent, that neither can sell their stock without the permission of the other and both blocks of stock must vote together on company matters.

Wynn resigned as Finance Chair of the Republican National Committee when reports detailing decades of sexual misconduct and abuse surfaced. "The Nevada Gaming Control Board will conduct its investigation in a thorough and judicious manner".

Gaming Control Board Chairman, A.G. Burnett, left, speaks as Gov. Brian Sandoval, looks on during the Gaming Policy Committee, which meets at the direction of the governor, on Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2017, at Clark County Government Center commissioners chambers in Las Vegas.

Wynn has also been accused by several employees of parading around his casino in short shorts and no underwear at times, with workers in the spa stating that his genitals would be hanging out and on full display at times. The state granted Wynn and his company a license after an extensive background check.

■ Monitor the corporate response to the allegations, now that they are public. However, she further pointed out that if there are allegations against a licensee's integrity and good reputation, these need to be considered by the commission.

Wynn is listed with a current net worth of $3.6 billion on the Forbes 400 list of the richest Americans.
