As you might expect, the action at Wynn is both sophisticated and decidedly pricey. Blackjack minimums start at $15, with a few single-deck games that pay the reduced 6:5 for naturals; hotel guests can also play 21 poolside at the Cabana Bar. Craps minimums are similar to blackjack. A single-zero roulette wheel is usually open in the high-limit room, though the minimums are high. The slots run the gamut from pennies to a $5,000 machine. Amazingly, Wynn has tried to attract local video-poker players with full-pay machines at higher denominations (very rare), though the schedules change unexpectedly; check the Las Vegas Advisor for their comings and goings. The keno lounge is one of the most comfortable in town.

Games: Baccarat ($100–$15,000); Big Six; blackjack ($15–$10,000); craps (3x, 4x, 5x; from $10); Let it Ride; mini baccarat ($50–$10,000); pai gow poker; pai gow tiles; poker (26 tables); roulette (single & double zero); three-card poker.
