Macau casino regulators look into allegations against Wynn

Posted at 10:03 AM, Jan 30, 2018

The China arm of Steve Wynn's casino empire says it will comply with Macau regulators as they seek more information about sexual misconduct allegations against the Las Vegas billionaire.

Wynn Macau said Tuesday it will "fully cooperate with any requests" from authorities in Macau.

The city is the world's most lucrative casino market and the main source of profits for Wynn and other foreign gambling companies.

The statement came after Macau's gambling regulator said it was concerned about reports Steve Wynn might have been "involved in inappropriate behavior in the United States."

The regulator said officials met with Wynn Macau management on Monday "to find out more about the situation."

The Wall Street Journal reported Friday that a number of women said they were harassed or assaulted by Wynn.
