Steve Wynn Career, Earnings, Salary

Steve Wynn was born Steve Weinberg, but his father changed their family's last name to avoid discrimination. Wynn's father owned a set of bingo parlors, so it looks like the apple didn't fall far from the tree. Wynn was raised in New York, went to a private boy's school and obtained a college degree from the University of Pennsylvania, where he was involved in a fraternity.

Although Steve Wynn did get into Yale Law School, he gave up a seat to matriculate at the school in order to take over his family's business after his father died of a heart attack.

Although Wynn's father reportedly left him a hefty gambling debt, it wasn't long before Wynn quickly began expanding the family business.

However, Wynn had his sight set on something much bigger. After getting married and starting a family, he moved to Las Vegas where he used his success with his family's business to obtain a stake in a casino. But it was a partnership with E. Parry Thomas, that served to truly launch Wynn's career since Thomas's bank financed most of Wynn's early real estate and casino deals. In the 1970s, Wynn's major casino move was to acquire, renovate and revamp the casino, the Golden Nugget.

The Golden Nugget esrved as one of Wynn's major successes and also inspired a lifelong friendship with the Sinatra family since Frank Sinatra often headlined shows at the Golden Nugget. In 197, Steve Wynn actually sold the Golden Nugget for $440 million.

From there, Steve Wynn went on to finance other major Vegas casinos releases, include the Mirage, The Bellagio and The Beau Rivage. Steve Wynn has also expanded into releasing casinos in Macau.

About the casino business, Steve Wynn has said:

What we know about the destination resort business is clearly established. But it's all about one thing, and one thing only. All of the razzmatazz and jazz we hear about facilities and everything else doesn't amount to a hill of beans. It's customer experience that determines the longevity and endurance of these enterprises.

In addition, to his casino ventures, however, Steve Wynn is also known worldwide for his extensive art collection. He has acquired several famous pieces for more than $30 million dollars apiece.

Steve Wynn famously intended to selling the painting "The Reve" for more than $130 million but while showing the painting to several famous friends, he actually put his elbow through the painting and as a result, was informed he could only sell the painting for $50 million less.

Of course, Wynn then went on to sue the insurance company.
