Documents Commitment To Environmental Efficiency Standards And Green Building Best Practices

 

LAS VEGAS, July, 2018  — Wynn Las Vegas announces that is has earned Four Green Globes for its dedication to creating and maintaining environmentally-friendly buildings, the highest certification given by the Green Building Initiative, a nonprofit organization that stimulates approaches to creating energy-efficient and environmentally sustainable buildings.

To receive Four Green Globes, dozens of key environmental performance metrics were reviewed at both Wynn and Encore covering energy use and efficiency, water conservation, heating and cooling, waste management, emissions and pollution control, and many more. As part of the extensive on-site evaluation process, an independent third party inspected almost eight million square feet of facilities, including all common areas, guest rooms and suites, employee back-of-house areas, mechanical rooms, and exterior spaces.

“We continuously examine every aspect of our resorts in order to protect the environment as much as possible,” said Erik Hansen, Chief Sustainability Officer for Wynn Resorts. “In many cases this can mean developing entirely new systems as solutions, which have served as a roadmap for our future developments and helped redefine green building practices on the Las Vegas Strip.”

The most recent energy advancement was the opening of the Wynn Solar Field in June 2018, a dedicated 160-acre solar energy facility that is offsetting up to seventy-five percent of the resort’s peak power requirements, the largest percentage of renewable energy used by any resort in Las Vegas. The Wynn Solar Field will eventually be used to power the resort’s new 280,000 square foot meetings and convention space expansion with 100% renewable energy.

ABOUT WYNN LAS VEGAS
Wynn Resorts is the recipient of more Forbes Travel Guide Five Star Awards than any other independent hotel company in the world. Wynn Las Vegas opened on April 28, 2005 and was once again named the best resort in Nevada on Condé Nast Traveler’s 2018 “Gold List,” a title received for the tenth time. Wynn and Encore Las Vegas feature two luxury hotel towers with a total of 4,750 spacious hotel rooms, suites and villas, approximately 192,000 square feet of casino space, 21 dining experiences featuring signature chefs and 11 bars, two award-winning spas, approximately 290,000 square feet of meeting and convention space, approximately 110,000 square feet of retail space as well as three nightclubs, a beach club and recreation and leisure facilities.

The Orion Upright is launching with a library of exclusive new titles and greatest hits from AGS’ ICON™ cabinet.

Debuting for the first time at NIGA, gaming operators will experience AGS’ Orion Upright with the new Fortune Blast™ family featuring four brand-new titles — Luck and Luxury™, Imperial Luck®, Goddess Treasures®, and Blazing Luck™. This new series offers ways or line-pay evaluation for more winning opportunities, and a symbol-locking feature to keep players on the edge of their seats.

AGS President and Chief Executive Officer David Lopez said, “NIGA is a show we look forward to every year because it gives us a chance to meet with our tribal operator-partners in an intimate setting and highlight our newest and most exciting products that are launching over the year. This year we are very excited about our new Orion Upright because it fills a need on many casino floors for a differentiated, attractive, and sophisticated core cabinet with great content.”

For the Orion Slant, AGS will spotlight the Fa Cai Shu™ and Kingdom Ca$h® families, which offer themed banking, linked progressive jackpots, and a variety of math models for a diverse and exciting gaming experience.

AGS continues to propel its table products business with a host of new proprietary table games and table solutions.

AGS will demonstrate its two table-game progressive platforms – STAX™ and Bonus Spin – which just reached a milestone of more than 1,000 units installed across the U.S. with a healthy backlog of orders planned throughout 2019. The award-winning STAX has a must-hit-by option that is driving demand and excitement on games like Super 4®, Blackjack Match™, and Royal 9™ as players anticipate the chance to win one of the five progressive jackpots. And Bonus Spin offers an eye-catching and anticipatory experience with its virtual prize wheel.

Caesars Palace is one of the largest properties in that part of Las Vegas with a variety of spacious facilities, including its nearly 125,000-square-foot casino floor.

Caesars Palace table game dealers now move to unite with the UAW, the major Detroit-based labour union representing workers from different industries across the United States and Canada. Nearly 550 casino dealers at Caesars Palace voted to unite with the UAW.

The Caesars Palace unionisation decision was made after a 371-12 vote in favour of the move. More than 1,470 dealers at Caesars-owned Bally’s Harrah’s, Paris, and Wynn Resorts’ Las Vegas casinos voted last week to join the union that represents around 400,000 active workers in different industries.

Union President Gary Jones said that they were thrilled to have Caesars Palace “vote to be allowed to join what are now over 10,000 casino workers in the UAW.”

Vance Pearson, Director of UAW Region 5, said in a release that they welcome the new union members and “look forward to getting down to business and bargaining great contracts.”
