Casino operator earnings season is quite fun when business is good. It’s at least interesting when the businesses are in flux. RIP Wynn Paradise Park, Wynn West Lives…Sorta, Caesars Expands Property-Wide Progressive Table Games + More Vegas and all the Vegas Scoop!
Wynn Las Vegas
Much of the news in Las Vegas for this week comes from the Global Gaming Expo (G2E). The casino business doesn’t entirely stop but it comes close.
The biggest news involving Las Vegas this week comes from another country (at least that’s what wikipedia says). The brand new LEGO Architecture Las Vegas is available to purchase on Amazon.
By the time you read this, I’ll be enjoying my summer vacation on the Vegas Strip. I’ll be staying in a casino and will be as immersed in Vegas for a week. It’s always fun to be a tourist in Las Vegas instead of someone on a mission to do X, Y, Z before going home.
You may have noticed that we made an emergency news post during the week. We didn’t think that the news about 18 Fremont and Wynn Paradise Park plans should wait until Sunday. Having said that this news post will be a little shorter than some others.
This week Wynn Resorts and Derek Stevens revealed plans about upcoming projects that need to be shared before Sunday. We’ll have more thoughts on each of these by Sunday but thought we should share the news before it’s news.
Steve Wynn took all the lessons learned with the Golden Nuggets, both in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, and turned them into the Mirage, the resort that became the model for themed resorts for years to come. That success has driven us through the wild success of Bellagio, Wynn and Encore, Wynn Macau and Cotai, and the wildly inventive ideas coming to this day with Wynn Paradise Park, Wynn West, and Wynn Boston Harbor.
I knew there was big news coming from Wynn Resorts today. On top of a massive revenue increase, Steve Wynn dropped a Las Vegas news bomb.
Wynn Resorts announced that they will be reporting earnings on Monday morning. Hard Rock May Finally Be Sold. While the deal isn’t confirmed there’s too much smoke not to see a fire. + more news and scoop
