         The Registrant announced today its intended expansion of its Wynn Las
Vegas project on 20 acres of land adjacent to the existing site. The new
development, tentatively named "Encore at Wynn Las Vegas," may include an
approximately 1,500 suite hotel tower, additional casino space and additional
restaurants, a spa and swimming pools, and retail and convention space designed
to capitalize on the significant infrastructure of Wynn Las Vegas, which is
scheduled to open on April 28, 2005. While the plans for the expansion have not
been finalized, Encore at Wynn Las Vegas is expected to cost approximately
$900.0 million. The Registrant expects that funding for Encore at Wynn Las
Vegas will be provided by new debt or equity financing to be obtained by its
indirect wholly owned subsidiary, Wynn Las Vegas, LLC. Encore at Wynn Las Vegas
would be expected to open in 2007. The Registrant's press release, dated
November 8, 2004, relating to Encore at Wynn Las Vegas, is filed herewith as
