Stephen Alan Wynn (born January 27, 1942 in New Haven, Connecticut) is a casino resort developer. He is credited with spearheading the dramatic expansion of Las Vegas, Nevada in the 1990s.
Wynn's father, Michael Weinberg, ran a string of bingo parlors in the eastern United States, and died shortly before Wynn graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1963. Wynn took over running the family's bingo operation in Maryland. He did well enough at it to accumulate the money to buy a small stake in the Frontier Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, where he and his wife, Elaine, moved in 1967.
Wynn managed to parlay his profits from a land deal in the early 1970s (the deal involved two established titans of the Las Vegas casino business, Howard Hughes and Caesars Palace) into a controlling interest in a dusty downtown casino, the Golden Nugget Las Vegas. Wynn renovated, revamped and expanded the Golden Nugget with enormous success, in the process attracting a new upscale clientele to downtown Las Vegas.
Wynn had previously acquired interests in various existing casinos. His first major Strip casino, The Mirage, set a new standard for size and lavishness, with construction costs to match. The Mirage featured an indoor forest and an outdoor "volcano," and with high quality room appointments and an emphasis on service, the Mirage was another great success. The Mirage was the first project in which he was involved in the design and construction of a casino. Financed largely with junk bonds issued by Michael Milken it was considered a risky venture, by the standards then prevailing in Las Vegas, because of its high cost and emphasis on luxury. It proved to be enormously successful and made Wynn a major part of Las Vegas history.
Wynn expanded further on his concept of the luxury casino in the later Bellagio resort, including an artificial lake, indoor conservatory and an art gallery in which Wynn displayed museum-quality artworks, and branches of high-end boutiques and restaurants located in Paris, San Francisco or New York.
Wynn's company, Mirage Resorts, Inc., developed casino/hotels in other locations around the United States.
Mirage Resorts was sold to MGM Grand Inc. in 2000, to form MGM Mirage. With the money he made on that deal, and with his ability to secure ever-greater financing, Wynn built a new resort, his most expensive yet, the Wynn Las Vegas, which opened on the former site of the Desert Inn on April 28, 2005.
According to the Forbes 400 listing, Wynn became a billionaire in 2004, when his net worth doubled, to $1.3 billion. 
Wynn owned The Golden Nugget in Atlantic City in the late 70's and into the early 80's. The casino was a major success, and he rewarded his employees new cars from a Honda Dealership in Atlantic City. Frustrations with New Jersey gaming regulators led to Wynn selling The Golden Nugget to Bally Entertainment, Incorporated.
Wynn owns an impressive art collection, which is on display to the public at Wynn Las Vegas. It includes paintings by Picasso, Vermeer, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Warhol, and Matisse.
His daughter Kevyn was kidnapped  in 1993. The developer paid $1.45 million in ransom for her safe return, and the kidnappers were famously nabbed when one bought a Ferrari in Newport Beach. (This story was obliquely referenced in the Ocean's Eleven remake.)Wynn suffers from retinitis pigmentosa.
