Massachusetts gambling regulators have imposed a fine of $35 million on Wynn Resorts, but allowed it to retain its casino license after failing to disclose allegations of sexual misconduct against company founder Steve Wynn.

The Massachusetts Gaming Commission’s decision clears the way for the opening of Encore Boston Harbor in June. The commission also fined CEO Matthew Maddox $500,000 and mandated an independent firm to evaluate the company’s recent organisational changes.

A five-member panel has privately investigated the misconduct allegations. Steve Wynn has denied the claims but resigned as CEO last year. Nevada regulators earlier this year levied a $20 million fine on Wynn Resorts but also allowed it to retain its state license.
