Nevada gambling regulators have filed a complaint against Steve Wynn, saying that the casino magnate’s alleged sexual misconduct has damaged the industry’s reputation in the state. The complaint lists multiple instances of sexual misconduct allegations that have been lodged against Wynn since January 2018.

The 23-page complaint, filed to the Nevada Gaming Commission, says Wynn is “unsuitable to be associated with a gaming enterprise or the gaming industry as a whole.” Wynn has denied all misconduct allegations against him.

The move follows a $20 million fine the commission levied on Wynn’s former company in February to settle allegations that former executives failed to investigate claims of sexual misconduct against Wynn by female employees. Gambling regulators in Massachusetts levied a $35 million fine on the company in April but allowed it to keep a casino license for a Boston-area resort.

An investigation by the Nevada gaming control board detailed allegations that Wynn paid hush money to multiple women who claimed he had pressured them into nonconsensual sexual relationships.

Senator Raymond Lesniak and Jamaal Lesane set to join stellar line-up

Two new speakers are to share their knowledge with delegates at next month’s Sports Betting USA conference in New York after being added to the roster.

Former New Jersey Senator Ray Lesniak and Jamaal Lesane, Senior Vice President, Legal and Business Affairs at The Madison Square Garden Company, will take to the stage on the second day the Metropolitan West.

Senator Lesniak, who was the instigator and driving force behind the legal battle that led to the repeal of PASPA, will deliver the keynote address.

Lesane is at the vanguard of venue owners looking to optimise in-stadia facilities for sports fans and will join the panel discussing the monetisation of the game day experience.

Sports Betting USA, which takes place 5-6 November and follows a one-day investor summit, will examine the opportunities and challenges of the wagering industry that has been estimated to be worth up to $150 Billion.

Event director Rory Credland believes the show, now in its third year, has a stronger line-up than ever and has become a must attend event for those with a stake in the growing market.

He added: “We’re delighted to welcome another two great speakers to Sports Betting USA and are confident they will have a lot to contribute to the exchange of knowledge.

“Senator Lesniak in particular needs no introduction and is one of the main reasons we are all gathering in New York. It will be fascinating to hear his take on the way other states can follow the lead of New Jersey in the coming months.”

Among the other highlights of this year’s show will be a presentation by New York Senator Joseph Addabbo Jr, who will share his state’s vision for sports betting as they look to include its legalisation in the 20/21 budget.

They will be joined by senior executives from leading operators, suppliers and media companies, including William Hill USA, Penn National Gaming and Sportradar, as well as representatives of sporting organisations including the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, MLS, PGA Tour, and NASCAR.
