The rest of the story

While Steve Wynn regales Foxboro with pretty pictures of an idyllic "rural" casino off Route 1, linked to a mall, a far different picture emerges across the world.

The New York Times tells us of a feud between Wynn and Japanese billionaire Kazuo Okada, a tale rife with accusations of bribes and payoffs that has begun to get the attention of the Nevada Gaming Control Board. which the Times notes:
Under its relatively taut regulations, allegations of corruption raise the risk that a person or company can be declared unsuitable, lose their licenses and be barred from the gambling industry.
With Massachusetts only two-fifths of the way to its own regulatory body, it's a cautionary tale to be sure.

Caveat emptor.
