The Las Vegas strip’s newest casino resort property will swing open its doors for the first time today (Thursday 24 June) at 11pm local time, as Resorts World introduces the world’s “most technologically advanced casino and gaming operations”.
The $4.3bn Genting facility officially released the date of its grand opening in April, when a desire to play a part in the region’s rebound after what has been an “incredibly challenging year for the destination and greater hospitality industry” was disclosed.
Resorts World Las Vegas will be driven by mobile technology and cashless wagering, in a move which has been praised as a “tremendous opportunity” to further the digital transformation of the consumer experience in gaming.
A number of partnerships have been secured alongside the likes of Konami Gaming, Sightline, NRT Technology, Genesis Gaming and IGT, with the facility to offer 117,000 square feet of gaming space featuring over 1,400 slot machines, 117 table games, a dedicated poker room and 30 poker tables, plus high-limit areas and a sportsbook.
“After years of planning and constructing this monumental property with some of the most innovative partners in the industry, Resorts World Las Vegas will redefine the hospitality standard in Las Vegas with unmatched dining and entertainment, more variety of hotel accommodations than anywhere else on the strip, and the city’s most progressive technology,” Scott Sibella, president of Resorts World Las Vegas, was previously quoted as saying when discussing the impending debut.
Furthermore, through a partnership with Hilton, the property will feature three of the group’s brands, in a collaboration lauded as “the largest multi-brand deal” in the hospitality firm’s history.
This will see Resorts World Las Vegas boast the largest Conrad Hotels & Resorts property in the world, one of the first LXR Hotels & Resorts locations in the US, and a marquee Hilton Hotels & Resorts hotel.
“Hilton helped create the Las Vegas we know today – the entertainment capital of the world grew as we invested in unparalleled hotels, dining, entertainment and design,” commented Chris Nassetta, Hilton president and CEO, ahead of the launch.
“Now we are raising the bar again, offering brands for any style of travel with a renewed focus on premium and luxury hotels. Las Vegas has been an especially bright spot in our global growth strategy, and we are excited to open thousands of rooms there just as people begin traveling again.”
