He is considered by some the father of the modern Las Vegas Mega Resort with design and construction of Vegas staples like the Mirage, Bellagio, and Treasure Island and before that the Frontier and Golden Nugget. These casinos have all since been bought by MGM/Mirage Corporation (along with about half of the casinos in Las Vegas) which originally was simply MGM before acquiring Mirage, Bellagio, and others in one of the largest deals in Vegas history changing its name from MGM to MGM/Mirage. It was only a matter of time before the 512th richest man in the world with a net worth of over 2 billion threw his name into the ring again… this time literally with the construction of Wynn than later the sister site on the same property, Encore. Together they are the 2nd largest resort complex in the world (though this may be disputed since they have considerably less rooms than the third ranked Venetian and Palazzo Resort) regardless of size though, the Wynn is a top tier hotel casino and by most accounts the second most luxurious on the Strip following only the Bellagio.
Ideally located on the second busiest cross street and the most upscale cross street on the Strip, the north east corner of Spring Mountain Rd. and Las Vegas Blvd. Wynn can be seen from miles around standing apart from the majority of her neighbors with a solid golden brown façade reflecting elegantly depending on the sun’s position. Leading to the complex is a beautiful array of nature separating itself from the hustle of Strip activity with a serene and calming atmosphere. Flowers bloom throughout the Wynn giving it almost a garden feel. It is a masterful mix of tranquility and excitement and one of the most popular destinations for locals and tourists alike. Before you slow down too much though, be sure to check out Nevada’s only Ferrari Maserati dealership located completely within the Wynn. Here you’ll find rare cars and some of the most expensive vehicles in the world – incase you win Megabucks you don’t even have to leave property to buy your dream car. In addition located behind the two hotels is a members and hotel guest only championship tier golf course designed by Tom Fazio and Steve Wynn.
It is a 5 star resort, and if they gave diamonds to Strip hotels only this and Bellagio would earn them. It is priced accordingly from the rooms to the gambling limits, restaurants and shopping. In addition Wynn hosts some extreme high limits gambling, for oil sheiks, Bill Gates, Princes, Kings and whoever invented toilet paper only basically. It is fun to think of someone betting on a hand what the average human makes in a lifetime though.
