A brand new casino on the Las Vegas Strip opens in just over two months.
According to a report from Yahoo! Resorts World Las Vegas announced on Monday that it will open its doors on June 24th.
It is one of the largest casino projects in the history of the Strip. The resort will have 3,500 rooms in its three Hilton hotel towers, more than 40 restaurants and restaurants, retail outlets, a 117,000 square foot casino, 250,000 square feet of meeting space, seven swimming pools and a theater with a capacity of 5,000 people. The on-site casino has a poker room.
The $ 4.3 billion resort began in May 2015 on the north end of the Las Vegas Strip, across from Wynn and Encore Las Vegas. In late 2018, when one of the property’s towers was taking shape, Wynn Resorts sued the Genting Group-owned casino for copyright infringement, claiming the building’s architecture was too similar to its own Las Vegas casinos.
“The architectural design contained in the Defendant’s Resorts World Las Vegas Hotel and Casino is essentially similar to the plaintiff’s registered copyrighted architectural work. Therefore, the defendant infringes plaintiff’s copyrights in addition to the plaintiff’s registered and customary commercial dress,” it said in the lawsuit.
The lawsuit was settled a month later when the Genting Group agreed to change various aspects of the building’s appearance.
Resorts World opens in the same location as the former Stardust Casino, a legendary Las Vegas casino that closed in 2006 and imploded in 2007. Boyd Gaming, owner of the Stardust, sold the land to the Malaysian gaming giant in 2013 for $ 350 million.
There have been several rebrandings on the Las Vegas Strip, such as the Imperial Palace, which is located in the LINQ Resorts World Las Vegas will be the first new casino in town since the Cosmopolitan opened in 2010.
The new casino will open shortly after the Nevada government. Steve Sisolak expects to see the casinos for the first time since COVID-19 pandemic in the US
