Wynn: The Opening

The casino mogul who brought to this desert oasis such over-the-top hotels as the Mirage and Bellagio kicked it up another notch just after midnight Wednesday with the opening of the world's most expensive casino resort, a $2.7 billion behemoth that had guests' mouths agape as they filed through an ornate front hallway bedecked with more than 10,000 flowers.

Thousands rushed into the Wynn Las Vegas as its creator, Steve Wynn, personally stood at the entrance shaking hands, posing for pictures and thanking the rich and the common folk alike for coming to witness what Wynn has modestly likened to the Great Pyramids of Egypt.

"Oh my, God!" gasped Georgina Fields, 34, of Manchester, N.H., who had waited in line for four hours. "Just look at the molding, the tile, everything."
