True Story: Last August I bought tickets to Spamalot and as a new club member I was to get $25.00 with my ticket purchase. Well, I waited on line and finally received my club card with FREE slot play.
I went to a machine put in my card and the machine reader wrote out "Welcome Richard, you have $10.00 Free Slot Play". Well, the deal was $25.00 so I trudged back to the Card Club line and waited another 10 minutes and the gal was apologetic and supposedly straightened out the problem.
When I returned to my machine, the reader read, "Welcome Richard, you have $35.00." Again it was wrong, but this time in my favor. I started to play and a guy ina "suit" comes over to me and says, "We wondered where you went. We were looking for you!" I said, "Pardon me?" And he says, when you run it down to $10.00 that's OURS!"
My wife loved the rooms. Everything in the rooms is first rate-modern, clean, comfortable. I was surprised that Steve Wynn did not build an attraction into the hotel as he did in TI , the Mirage and Bellagio.
While a very nice casino there is nothing here to make the property standout from its competition. The buffet is first class but once again does not stand out frpm its competition.
This place is a must see! Lots of high end shoppes to window shop, feels like Rodeo Drive. Beautiful flowers and plants everywhere. Table games have higher limits than most casinos. We both got $10 free slot play for signing up for players club card. Put it in a nickle machine, 3rd or 4th spin won $110! cashed out, played through the rest of the $10 and quit gambling. Give it a try!

What can you say about the Wynn other than it is probably the most elegant casino on the strip?(with the Bellagio and Palazzo finishing a close 2nd & 3rd) It has everything: gourmet buffet, top-notch suites, a tight nightclub (Blush -- the Obama inauguration party was held here), a comfortable gambling environment with great cocktail service, and the prerequisite Vegas show.
Though the casino is geared towards high-rollers, the employees are not aloof; rather they are very friendly. Sign up for a player's club card and you get free slot play (which I was able to double), and earn points to obtain a free buffet token -- which is a great deal considering the quality of the food.
I recommend staying at the Wynn for those discerning travellers who value quality. The new Encore is attached to it, as is the Palazzo (which is connected to the Venetian). You could spend your entire vacation in these four casinos and never run out of things to do... especially if you love window shopping (I'm a fan of the Rolex store).
With the troubled economy wreaking havoc on Vegas casino revenue, you should be able to get a great deal at the Wynn, along with most other casinos. So now is the time to stay at the opulent casino. I'd rather shell out the bucks here than at Encore.
Wynn is an elite casino, and every visitor to Vegas should at least check it out once.
