LAS VEGAS -

Casino mogul Steve Wynn has resigned as chairman and CEO at Wynn Resorts amid sexual misconduct allegations.

The Las Vegas billionaire has vehemently denied the allegations, which he attributes to a campaign led by his ex-wife.
  
He also faces investigations by gambling regulators in two states.
  
The board of directors for Wynn Resorts has appointed Matt Maddox, currently president of the company, as its CEO effective immediately.
