Basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal, F1 driver Ma Qinghua, pro golfer Rose Zheng, snooker masters Ronnie “The Rocket” O’Sullivan and “The Whirlwind” Jimmy White, and world-renowned DJs Soda, Amber Na and John Culter. What do they have in common? They’ve all made their way to Wynn Macau and Wynn Palace in recent months, making the two sister resorts the hottest places to be and be seen when it comes to entertainment, sporting events and much more.

A prime example of these “Only at Wynn” experiences is last month’s “Legend DJ Poolside Dance Party” featuring O’Neal – as his alter ego DJ Diesel – along with Korean icon and Asia’s No 1 female DJ, DJ Soda; top touring Malaysian DJ Amber Na; and renowned DJ John Culter performing over two consecutive nights at Wynn Palace. The crowds were pumping to the powerful vibes outdoors by the Wynn Palace pool, while LED screens and water dancing added to the excitement.

O’Neal – together with Ma Qinghua, the first Chinese driver to enter Formula 1 – officiated the opening ceremony for the “Wynn Signature – 2023 Hypercar Exhibition” that kicked off on October 1 and continues until November 30. The exhibition, under the lifestyle experience brand “Wynn Signature”, aims to promote the Macau Grand Prix with a collection of 16 world-class and rare hypercars with a total value exceeding HK$500 million. The extraordinary lineup includes the first-ever McLaren Hyper-GT Speedtail; Bugatti’s ultimate masterpiece, “Bugatti Chiron”; and the Pagani Huayra BC limited to 20 units globally.

Coming next month is the highly anticipated “Wynn Presents – 2023 Macau Snooker Masters” event that’s part of Wynn’s long-term plan to bolster Macau’s influence in the international sports scene. Ranked No.1 in the world, Ronnie “The Rocket” O’Sullivan was among the five world-class snooker players who travelled to Macau in June to participate in the press conference announcing the prestigious event.
