Casino mogul Steve Wynn says the gun massacre outside the Mandalay Bay casino isn't keeping tourists away from Las Vegas.

'If you're going to ask us what effect did the tragedy at Mandalay have on us? None that we can measure,' Wynn said late Thursday on a conference call to discuss his company's earnings.

The latest, and most damaging attack, happened during the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas on Sunday night as Stephen Paddock opened nine seconds of non-stop automatic gunfire from the 32nd flood of Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in the first round of shooting, followed by two shorter rounds.

Slide Fire Solutions, LP, said in a filing in a Nevada court last month that it may be entitled to a portion of Stephen Paddock's estimated $1 million estate, arguing that Paddock's estate should.

Wynn said his company has invested more in security since the shootings. He expects the rest of the industry is doing the same.

'We're sort of operating as a group. Some of us are talking to one another, like the Sands and MGM,' he said.

Wynn said people 'in every executive suite up and down The Strip and in Reno and everywhere else and in hotels around the country' are searching for ways to prevent another massacre.

'We've had programs of training our employees for two years -- room service, housekeeping, audio visual people that go to fix a TV or touch screen,' Wynn said.

'They've all been trained for two years. They inspect the rooms. They look at the people. We profile everybody,' he added.

Wynn said that the Las Vegas gunman, Stephen Paddock, had been a gambler at Wynn-owned casinos since 2006 but that there was nothing remarkable about him. He was a typical slots and video poker player who 'didn't owe a dime in Las Vegas,' Wynn said.

'He didn't meet the profile of a problem gambler or anything like that. He was a very controlled person,' Wynn said.

Casino workers who knew Paddock 'were stunned, mystified, that the person they knew could have been a person that tried to assassinate hundreds and thousands of people,' Wynn said.
