    Massachusetts casino regulators are stepping up their probe of Wynn Resorts in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations that led to the departure of the company's former chairman, Steve Wynn.

    The Boston Herald reports the Massachusetts Gaming Commission has asked a consultant to examine whether the scandal has impacted the financial stability of Wynn Resorts.

    The company is building a $2.4 billion resort casino in Everett, just outside of Boston.

    The commission began a review of Wynn's suitability for the project after the allegations involving Steve Wynn surfaced in January.
