Wynn Gaming Resort Opens in Macau

Macau, China -- Las Vegas hospitality entrepreneur Steve Wynn today opened a 600-room resort here, a luxury entry into an area that is emerging as a world-class gaming destination.

Wynn Macau contains more than 23,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, which among other state-of-the-art amenities includes both wired and wireless high-speed Internet access.

The resort also contains a full-service spa, six restaurants, three lounges, a shopping mall featuring high-end shops, and a 100,000-square-foot casino.

Wynn follows by two years fellow Las Vegas entrepreneur and rival Sheldon Adelson in establishing a presence in Macau. Adelson operates the Sands Macao Casino and is developing a massive, multi-resort and convention complex to be anchored by the 3,000-room Venetian Macao.

Macau is the only area in China where gambling is legal. It consists of a peninsula and two islands situated on the country's southern coast.

In Las Vegas, Adelson heads Las Vegas Sands Corp., which operates the Venetian Resort and Sands Expo Center. Wynn operates the Wynn Las Vegas Resort.
