Craig Billings, CEO of Wynn Resorts, said, "Our second quarter results reflect continued strength in North America and Macau. In the US, Wynn Las Vegas and Encore Boston Harbor continue to perform well, generating a new second quarter record for Adjusted Property EBITDAR at our combined North American properties. 

“In Macau, the post-Covidrecovery accelerated during the quarter, with particular strength in our mass gaming, luxury retail and hotel businesses. On the development front, we were excited to begin construction on Wynn Al Marjan Island, which we believe will be a 'must see' tourism destination in the UAE."
