LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada gambling regulators are investigating the sexual misconduct allegations against casino mogul Steve Wynn.
The Nevada Gaming Control Board announced the investigation in a statement Tuesday.
The board says it opened the probe after completing a review, but it did not provide any details. Board chairwoman Becky Harris declined to comment.
The Wall Street Journal reported Friday that a number of women said they were harassed or assaulted by Wynn. One case led to a .5 million settlement with a manicurist.
Wynn has denied the allegations.
Gambling regulators in Massachusetts, where Wynn’s company is building a casino, are also looking into the allegations.
In addition, the China arm of Wynn’s casino empire has said it will comply with Macau regulators as they seek more information.
