Elaine Wynn submitted this letter to shareholders in her proxy fight with Wynn Resort this afternoon.

Elaine P. Wynn
c/o Wynn Resorts, Limited
3131 Las Vegas Boulevard South
Las Vegas, NV 89109

To My Fellow Wynn Resorts, Limited Stockholders:

I am furnishing this proxy statement and the accompanying GOLD proxy card to stockholders of Wynn Resorts, Limited (the "Company") in connection with my solicitation of proxies to be used at the Company's 2015 annual meeting of stockholders (the "Annual Meeting"). The Annual Meeting is scheduled to be held on Friday, April 24, 2015, at 9:00 a.m. local time, at the Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas, 3131 Las Vegas Boulevard South, Las Vegas, Nevada. This proxy statement and the accompanying GOLD proxy card are first being furnished to stockholders on or about March , 2015.

At the Annual Meeting, I am seeking re-election to the board of directors of the Company (the "Board"). I am using this proxy statement to solicit proxies from holders of the Company's common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the "Common Stock"), to vote for my re-election to the Board, and to vote on the other proposals identified in this proxy statement. As one of the Company's original founders and its third largest stockholder, I have a unique history with the Company and I represent a strong, independent voice on the Board. As a director, I am committed to acting in the best interests of all of the stockholders of the Company, and I urge you to vote your GOLD proxy card to re-elect me to the Board.

Only stockholders of record at the close of business on March 5, 2015 (the "Record Date") are entitled to attend and vote at the Annual Meeting and any adjournments or postponements thereof. Stockholders of record at the close of business on the Record Date will be entitled to one vote at the Annual Meeting for each share of Common Stock held on the Record Date.

Whether or not you plan to attend the Annual Meeting, I urge you to vote for my re-election to the Board by signing, dating and returning the enclosed GOLD proxy card in the postage-paid envelope, or by voting via the Internet or telephone. I URGE YOU NOT TO RETURN ANY WHITE PROXY CARD SENT TO YOU BY THE COMPANY. Please note that if you submit a WHITE proxy card to WITHHOLD your vote with respect to any of the Company's nominees, that submission will not cause your shares to be counted as a vote FOR me, and will revoke any prior GOLD proxy card that you may have submitted. If you want to vote for me, use only the GOLD card.

Also, if you hold your shares of Common Stock through a brokerage firm or bank, only they can exercise voting rights with respect to your shares and only upon receipt of your specific instructions. Accordingly, it is critical that you promptly contact the person responsible for your account and give instructions to vote the GOLD proxy card.

If you have any questions or require any assistance in executing your proxy, please call my proxy solicitor, Okapi Partners LLC, at (877) 629-6355.

Haha holy crap. The signature reveal at the end was Keyser Soze-esque. Now I want to see her sign 'Elaine Mirage' to compare that logo too.

They say behind every great man there's a great woman...

The signature looks to be the Wy from Steve's signature and nn from Elaine's.

Wynn Resorts needs Elaine on the board. She is the only voice of reason in that joint. Without her, all you have is another casino company run by a batshit crazy, megalomaniac billionaire. Without Elaine, Wynn might as well merge with Sands. Heck, the Wynn employees already park on that side of the street anyway.

She's sent out a new version of this letter.
