Elaine Wynn – after she got a divorce from businessman Steve Wynn, Mrs. Wynn became $ 750 million richer. And thanks to a decent share of the Mirage Resort Company she got into the rating.
Kazuo Okada became an exception from the rule. The managed to enter the rating by himself after founding Aruze Company, which deals with slots machines production.
