The Great One might have a total of $2 million in losses at a casino in Las Vegas, a Nevada newspaper has reported.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal, citing an insider, reported Wayne Gretzky has lost more than $2 million in Sin City and has a line of credit with the Mansion at the MGM Grand that allows him to bet as much as $25,000 per hand.

"Less than one percent bet at that level," reported the Review-Journal.

"At $25,000, you've got a credit line of $1 million."

Gretzky and his wife Janet reportedly play at the MGM Grand Mansion, where guests must risk $250,000 to stay in the high-roller suites.

Casino spokeswoman Yvette Monet, wouldn't confirm the report yesterday.

"We have a policy where we do not release guest information ... we do not disclose it publicly," she said.

Janet, a former Hollywood actress, is embroiled in a controversy for allegedly placing more than $500,000 in illegal bets.
