Wynn Resorts Suggests Banning Steve Wynn

At this moment, the casino giant – Wynn Resorts, is looking to do just about anything to keep the MGC (Massachusetts Gaming Commission) happy. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that its latest move was suggesting to ban their founder and previous CEO Steve Wynn from entering any of their premises.

In the event that Massachusetts takes up the offer, Steve Wynn will be prohibited from the Encore Las Vegas, Wynn Las Vegas, the new Boston project, and the Macau locations that are run by Wynn Resorts. However, this is not their only offer to the MGC. In their 49-page proposal, Wynn Resorts offered about 12 more suggestions in order to avoid losing their operating license in the state. Read on below and find out more.

Wynn Resorts Suggestions to Massachusetts

The suggestions they made to the MGC include a yearly audit of their company policies, a compliance committee that will investigate the sexual assault claims, routine harassment and discrimination training for their staff members, keeping their distance from Steve Wynn’s lawyer, and lastly keeping the MGC posted on every single complaint that will be raised.

In filling this document, the leading casino operator mentioned their hopes and these read that the MGC finds that Wynn Resorts has recognised their suitability by proving convincing and clear evidence. More so, they do hope that there isn’t any substantial evidence that the company provided, which the MGC will find as misleading or false, in violation of the gambling rules and regulations.

Of all their suggestions to the Massachusetts Gaming Commission, one that couldn’t make the cut was for the current CEO of Wynn Resort – Matt Maddox – to be fired. Being Steve Wynn’ right-hand man for years and handpicked successor, Joan Vennochi from the Boston Globe argued that he must be forced to resign. The reason was that he most likely assisted in concealing Steve Wynn’s bad behaviour and also that he carries a reminder of it.


These 13 suggestions from Wynn Resorts might go reasonably well. However, the most critical question is are they going to go far enough. Based on Elaine Wynn’s testimony day, Matt Maddox doesn’t seem to be the MGC’s favourite person. In addition, with the Globe supporting his resignation, it might just be what it takes for Wynn Resorts to retain its operating license. Contrary to this, the Nevada Gaming Control Board reported to the media that regardless of it all, Matt Maddox is in good standing.
