This week’s casino news starts us off in Las Vegas where a date has been set for the highly-anticipated Resorts World. Let’s take a closer look at the details as the grand opening nears.
Brand New Las Vegas Strip Casino To Open On June 24th
Visitors of the Las Vegas Strip are in store for a brand-new casino to arrive in just a few months. The highly-anticipated grand opening of Resorts World Las Vegas announced that their doors will officially open on June 24th. This casino happens to be one of the largest projects in Strip history with 3,500 rooms, three hotel towers, over 40 restaurants and a 250,000 square foot meeting space.
Construction on this historic building first started back in May of 2015 and it’s been a long wait for the doors to open. The $4.3 billion dollar casino has been in the works for quite a while and obviously the COVID-19 pandemic didn’t help. They were supposedly rounding into form around 2018 but the finishing touches took a few more years.
Resorts World Las Vegas is also expected to be the first new ground-up casino on the Strip since 2010. Luckily for them, they are opening just when Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak expects all casinos to return to 100 percent capacity. Perhaps we could see this historic casino in full form on the day of its opening.
Las Vegas Local Hits $238k Slot Jackpot
Imagine turning a $1 bet into six figures. That’s the American dream and it’s exactly what happened to one lucky Las Vegas resident.
The lucky winner received a massive payday after hitting the progressive jackpot at Palace Station. The winner was identified as Delores Raymond and it was revealed by the company that the win came on a IGT Wheel of Fortune slot machine. It was also shocking to find out that the winnings came off of a $1.25 bet that she made.
The Wheel of Fortune slot machine has worked wonders at Station Casinos in the past few weeks. This huge payday came just a little after another guest hit the progressive payday for $603,644 on just a $1.75 bet. However, that guest didn’t hit the jackpot on the same machine, as that big win took place back on April 17th at the Red Rock Resort.
The Wheel of Fortune slot is one of the most popular machines on The Strip. Not only is a recognizable brand name, it’s one of the games that tends to frequently have huge paydays.
