Resorts World Las Vegas offers its guests not only more than 3,500 hotel rooms, but also a gigantic casino area on an area of around 10,900 square meters. After many years of planning and construction, the opening of the resort could now be celebrated at the end of the strict Corona measures. Just a few weeks ago we reported in the article entitled “Back to normal” – Gambling in Las Vegas about the impressive progress made by the desert metropolis in combating the global corona pandemic.
Shortly before the opening, a fire broke out in the casino
Just a few days before the official opening, a fire broke out at Resorts World Las Vegas Casino. According to media reports, on Saturday, June 19, 2021 there was a fire in a warehouse near the garages in the evening. The fire was quickly under control by the local fire brigade, so that the damage was not too great. Fortunately, no people were injured either.
The cause of the fire is still unclear. Previously, residents had reported heavy smoke development at the location of the new resort. It is conceivable that the persistent heat in Las Vegas was the cause of the fire in the new Resorts World. In the desert metropolis, the thermometer sometimes showed temperatures of more than 47 degrees Celsius. By the way, at the beginning of the year we reported in another article about the dark and criminal sides of Las Vegas.
In Resorts World Las Vegas there is a casino area with around 10,900 square meters and three hotels with a total capacity of 3,506 rooms. These include the Las Vegas Hilton at Resorts World (1,774 rooms), the Conrad Las Vegas at Resorts World (1,496 rooms) and the Crockfords Las Vegas (236 rooms). Until 2007, the Stardurst Resort and Casino was at the same location.
High-tech casino can open on time despite an incident
Resorts World Las Vegas is the first new casino and hotel resort on the Las Vegas Strip, which opened in 2010. The Cosmopolitan opened over ten years ago. Since then, there have been no new openings on a large scale on the Las Vegas Strip. In return, Resorts World Las Vegas is now exceeding all expectations: visitors can not only look forward to a playing area of 10,900 square meters, but they can also check into one of the three Hilton hotels on site.
Thanks to technical advances, casino guests can look forward to very special highlights. Accordingly, cash payments are completely superfluous in the brand new casino resort due to the latest technical developments. For example, guests can conveniently pay with their smartphone on the entire casino floor. In addition, there are already rumors that the newly opened resort is already working with the Gemini crypto exchange to offer cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin for payment in the future. It was only in February of this year that we reported on the breakthrough of the cryptocurrency Bitcoin in Las Vegas.
Mega project cost around $ 4.3 billion
Behind Resorts World Las Vegas is the listed Genting Group based in Malaysia. According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the development and construction costs for the impressive casino resort were approximately $ 4.3 billion. This makes Resorts World Las Vegas the most expensive resort to date that has ever been built in the desert metropolis.
Just in time for the end of many Corona restrictions, a new gigantic casino resort is finally opening again in the gambling metropolis Las Vegas. Resorts World Las Vegas should originally have opened several years ago. However, the completion was delayed again and again. But a few days ago the time had finally come: the 4.3 billion mega project was completed and the glamorous Resorts World Las Vegas opened its doors.
