A Billionaire’s Vegas Dream

“Billionaire Steve Wynn seems like one of those characters who could only exist in Las Vegas. Now 60, he has played as great a part in the creation of modern Las Vegas as anyone – and is now poised, with his latest, most spectacular venture, to leave his name permanently on the city’s skyline… A couple of months ago, he spent more than $25m in the space of 24 hours, buying works by Cézanne and Renoir at Christie’s and Sotheby’s in New York – but in Las Vegas he is casino magnate, philanthropist, city father and enigma all rolled into one.” Wynn’s latest venture is a multi-billion dollar resort hotel, in which he will place his legendary art collection, and open two theaters featuring performances by the likes of Cirque Du Soleil.
