On a recent PBS Nevada TV program “Ralston Reports”, casino owner Steve Wynn spoke about the current decline in Macau, business endeavors and his stance on online gambling in the US.
Wynn, who was previously in talks with PokerStars but backed out, said: “I believe that Internet gaming is not going to happen in any way that is meaningful for Las Vegas.”
He also commented on the chances of online gambling legalization at the federal level saying: “I don’t think it has any chance of getting through the House of Representatives, and even if it did, it would be at the behest, at the encouragement, of the state lottery boards who want to go into that business. I am not going to get into [online gaming]. We’ll get blamed if anything goes wrong.”
