Before you bet on the the future of Wynn (WYNN - Get Report) , it's time for a history lesson. 

Real estate businessman Steve Wynn,77, opened his first major casino on the Las Vegas Strip, The Mirage on November 22,1989. Interestingly, the casino got its popularity as it was the first casino to use security cameras full-time on all table games.

Even though the business was doing good, Wynn had some other things planned. 

He sold the Mirage Resorts to MGM Grand in 2000 and bought Desert Inn, laying the foundation for Wynn Resorts.

And rest they say is history.
