The company released an update on the Wynn Al Marjan Island casino in the UAE. New images of the resort were published and the group hopes to open the $4 billion project in early 2027.

Wynn also spoke of potential launches in New York and Thailand. The operator is considering opening an integrated resort in Hudson Yards but will have to wait until 2025 for a decision to be made regarding new casino licenses in the state.

Billings described the Thailand project as “very early days” but said that the company is very interested due to the country being a “major tourism destination” with “significant tourism infrastructure and a world class service culture.”
