Steve Wynn comments on resignation | 2018-02-07



The board of directors of Wynn Resorts recently announced that it accepted the resignation of Steve Wynn as CEO and chairman of the board of directors.  The board has appointed Matt Maddox, currently president of the company, as its CEO, and Boone Wayson as non-executive chairman of the board of directors, effective immediately.

“It is with a collective heavy heart, that the board of directors of Wynn Resorts today accepted the resignation of our founder, CEO and friend Steve Wynn,” said non-executive chairman of the board Boone Wayson.  “Steve Wynn is an industry giant.  He is a philanthropist and a beloved leader and visionary.  He played the pivotal role in transforming Las Vegas into the entertainment destination it is today. He also assembled a world-class team of executives that will continue to meet the high standards of excellence that Steve Wynn created and the Wynn brand has come to represent.”

Wynn Resorts reportedly remains as committed as ever to upholding the highest standards and being an inclusive and supportive employer. The company will continue to fully focus on its operations at Wynn Macau, Wynn Palace and Wynn Las Vegas; the development and opening of the first phase of Wynn Paradise Park, currently under construction on the former Wynn golf course; as well as the construction of Wynn Boston Harbor, which will open in June 2019.  

Details of Mr. Wynn’s separation agreement will be disclosed when they are finalized.

STATEMENT FROM STEVE WYNN:

“In the last couple of weeks, I have found myself the focus of an avalanche of negative publicity.  As I have reflected upon the environment this has created — one in which a rush to judgment takes precedence over everything else, including the facts — I have reached the conclusion I cannot continue to be effective in my current roles.  Therefore, effective immediately, I have decided to step down as CEO and chairman of the board of Wynn Resorts, a company I founded and that I love.

“The Wynn Resorts team and I have built houses of brick.  Which is to say, the institution we created — a collection of the finest designers and architects ever assembled, as well as an operating philosophy now ingrained in the minds and hearts of our entire team — will remain standing for the long term.   I am extremely proud of everything we have built at this company.  Most of all, I am proud of our employees.

“The succession plan laid out by the board of directors and which I wholeheartedly endorse now places Matt Maddox in the CEO seat.  With Matt, Wynn Resorts is in good hands.  He and his team are well positioned to carry on the plans and vision for the company I created.  

I want to thank all of the employees who have made Wynn Resorts the most admired resort company in the world, and for the support I have received from them in recent weeks.  Most importantly, I want everyone to continue to be proud of this company and the many unique ways it will forever continue to delight guests.”

Konami announces Fortune Cup market release | 2018-02-02



Konami Gaming, Inc. recently announced the market release of its Fortune Cup mechanical horse racing game, bringing modern technology improvements to a high-demand gaming format enjoyed by generations. The game features a 9-foot wide mechanical track with eight horses that travel freely and independently across the course. The horses’ actions are mirrored by real-time digital animation on connected LCD screens in a sports broadcast format, and players place their bets through touchscreen stations with race stats, horse odds, mystery progressive jackpots and comprehensive bet options for win, place and quinella. Following months of success on the Las Vegas Strip under Nevada’s New Innovation Beta (NIB) program, Fortune Cup is now live at four locations and is expanding across North America.

“Mechanical horse racing is a unique attraction and beloved casino classic for its shared social experience, fun creative ingenuity, and irresistible nostalgia. Konami’s Fortune Cup is bringing that dynamic back to the casino with top quality and advanced features for players to enjoy for years to come,” said Tom Jingoli, executive vice president and chief commercial officer at Konami Gaming, Inc. “Fortune Cup has proven entertainment value both in the legacy of the product category and Konami’s roots as an amusement company for nearly 50 years.”

Konami Gaming, Inc. developed Fortune Cup based on proven technology from the organization’s video game and arcade divisions. Its core processing is powered by a proprietary cross-platform game engine and the machine’s hardware components have logged years of time-tested performance and durability under Konami’s amusement arcade division. Fortune Cup is a continuation of Konami’s specialty expertise in large multi-station products, designed for unique amusement and attraction.

“Fortune Cup is designed to provide new entertainment options to players and appeal to a broad audience, which we’ve seen affirmed in several ways by outcomes and results from launch locations,” said Jingoli. “It carries the most advanced technology in the history of this product category, without compromising the quintessential charm. The response from players has been strong and we’re looking forward to continued growth.”

Konami’s multi-station Fortune Cup mechanical horse racing game is available for placement in the U.S. and Canada through general release. Operators interested in further details are encouraged to contact their Konami account executive.
