Total Pro Sports – If your looking for a place to lose some money in Las Vegas just talk to Steve Wynn cause he will take your action.
At 8:00pm Las Vegas time, the infamous Steve Alan Wynn who is most famous for creating The Mirage, The Bellagio, Treasure Island, and The Wynn. Will open his new luxury resort and casino named “Encore“, a mirror image of his Wynn property.
After selling off his first 3 properties to the MGM/Mirage Company, Steve Wynn found it fitting to establish himself again on the Las Vegas Strip with the opening of The Wynn in April of 2005. Barely a year later he broke ground in 2006 on his second property, with 24 hours of continuous construction and $2.3 billion in costs Steve Wynns Encore became Wynn’s sister property.
Inside Encore, the new resort houses 2,034 suites — 682 more than the Wynn. The Encore standard suites are 700 square feet, compared to 640 square feet at the Wynn. The larger suites at the new resort measure 5,800 square feet, 2,600 square feet larger than the flagship property’s large suites. Las Vegas Sun Reports
It seems funny to us how the American Economy is taking a beating and the government has to bail out the big 3 car makers for billions of dollars. But in Las Vegas, new properties are being built and people are still flodding the casino floors spending millions of dollars.
“In my business gaming has never been the driver,” he said. “It’s maybe been the best cash register in the building until the clubs came along.”
Steven you don’t need to lie here, we all know that if it weren’t for the casinos in your properties, the hotels on the strip will be broke. I guess we’ll just have to see how long it will take before the gamblers stop losing their money and the American Government has to bail out their biggest tax producer Las Vegas.
