The new casino on the Las Vegas Strip now opens on June 24 th
Visitors to the Las Vegas Strip are waiting for a brand new casino to arrive in just a few months. The long-awaited grand opening of Resorts World Las Vegas announced that their doors will officially open on June 24 th . This casino is one of the largest projects in the history of the Strip with 3,500 rooms, three hotel towers, over 40 restaurants and 250,000 square feet of conference space.
Construction on this historic building began in May 2015 and it was a long wait for the doors to open. The $ 4.3 billion casino has been around for a long time and of course the COVID-19 pandemic didn't help. They reportedly rounded into shape around 2018, but it took a few more years to finish.
Resorts World Las Vegas is expected to be the first new casino from scratch on the Strip from 2010. Luckily for them, it opens just as Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak expects all casinos to return to 100 percent capacity. Perhaps we could see this historic casino in full shape on the day it opens.
