The Steve Gets Paid

The irrepressible Steve Wynn - casino magnate, Picasso poker, builder of cool gamblin joints, friend of the Dali Lama - took home a spiffy $10,000,000 in cash and prizes for busting his ass last year.

"The Steve" took home $2.8 million in salary, $6.9 million in 'non-equity incentive plan' and $262,915 in other cash and prizes - including, but not limited to, use of the Wynn Resorts jet, payment of life insurance, a years supply of Turtle Wax (one can), Rice-A-Roni (the San Francisco treat) and a new set of American Tourister luggage for him and The Elaine.

To put this booty in perspective, The Steve's haul equals (approximately):

  • 40,000,000 spins of a .25 slot machine
  • 13,333,333 spins of a .25 Wheel of Fortune slot (at Max Credits)
  • 666,666 hands of $15 blackjack
  • Losing every $15 blackjack hand for 463 days (with no bathroom or sleep breaks)

Celine Dion makes about 3 times that. Go figure.



Comments & Discussion:

Funny, because I find The Steve way more entertaining than Celine Dion!

Still good work if you can get it.
