The Suite Blog >> Forbes Casino Billionaire's Duke it Out

March 11, 2008 - Now that Forbes' latest edition of the The World's Top Billionaire's has been released, there's somewhat of a debate going on in the casino gambling world. Or should I say it's more of a braggadocios banter that's going down. Taking the spotlight away from Donald Trump for once, attention was given to the casino gambling king pins - Steve Wynn and Sheldon Adelson.

Adelson was named #6 on the billionaire list, while Wynn finished a disappointing #264. Well, not disappointing to me at least. The only disappointment is that Wynn couldn't give Adelson a better run for his own money...and ego. A battle of egos indeed, the two men were recently quoted in the London times shouting put downs at one another.

Adelson said something along the lines of nobody else being as rich as he was, that he simply does a better job at what he does, and will continue to "eat their lunch". He even referred to Wynn as a "so called rival" and said that Wynn thinks he is a superior being. If that isn't enough to strike a nerve in a man who puts his name on a building, I don't even think a heist on Wynn's fine art collection would do the trick.

Wynn's comments about Adelson were that he "harbors a lot of animosity towards a lot of people". Yourself included no doubt there Mr. Wynn. And showing something more of his "superior" taste, Wynn referred to Adelson's casino and hotel operations as a "Wal-Mart-style operation". Maybe that's not such a bad analogy. It certainly explains Adelson's $26 billion of net worth.

Amidst all this trash talking, do these guys really even deserve the attention. The only reason I'm writing about it now is because it is somewhat fitting on the gambling section of the Online Casino Suite Blog. However, when it comes down to it, I would much rather hear about the billions that Warren Buffet gives away to charity, and yet still remains the second largest billionaire in the world. Or how about Michael Bloomberg's pledge to give away his entire fortune when he leaves his office as New York City Mayor. Now that's interesting.
