Wynn Resorts cooperates in anti-corruption investigation

(Macau).- Wynn Macau informed that it has been contacted by Macau’s anti-corruption agency regarding the company’s land purchase for its new resort-casino on the Cotai Strip. The agency is investigating why Wynn Resorts was made to pay USD 50 million for the land rights.

We are working cooperatively with” the city’s Commission Against Corruption, the Las Vegas-based company said in an e-mailed reply to questions yesterday.

The Macau Business newspaper reported July 11 thatWynn Resorts had to buy the rights from certain mainlanders, though the Land Public Works and Transport Bureau said it wasn’t aware of their involvement, according to the Macau Business report.

The anti-graft body had declined to comment on the report as the case is under investigation. Macau, the world’s largest gambling hub, is the only place in China where casinos are legal.

Mainland Chinese tourists accounted for two-thirds of the total visitors to the former Portuguese enclave in the first quarter.
