A multi-billion-dollar Las Vegas Strip mega-resort, Resorts World Las Vegas has released updates by developer Genting Group with the most significant being that the $4.3 B integrated casino resort is checking in its Asian theme.

In addition, following the failed Lucky Dragon Casino, as a result, Resorts World developers are toning down the Asian flare in an effort to make sure that the property still appeals to a wide enough demographic for the multi-billion-dollar investment to make a return.
Moreover, in a project update, Genting mentioned that “Resorts World Las Vegas will combine both traditional and modern architecture, weaving a new luxury hotel experience into the fabric of Las Vegas with Asian influenced touches, growing technology, and also world-class guest service”.
Equally important, the 88-acre site of Resorts World is just to the north across the Strip from Encore Las Vegas furthermore the property sits between Phil Ruffin’s Treasure Island and Trump International. Which was later owned by Ruffin for 50 per cent and The Trump Organization the other half.
In fact, The Las Vegas Strip hasn’t opened a new casino resort since The Cosmopolitan debuted in December of 2010. As a matter of fact, at $4.3 billion, Resorts World will become the most expensive Strip development with The Cosmopolitan currently holding the title at $4.18 billion. Similarly, Blackstone Group, owners of The Cosmopolitan, has recently agreed to buy Bellagio Resort from MGM Resorts International for $4.35 billion.
Additionally, it was mentioned that Resorts World will feature a 110,000 square foot casino floor with slots, table games, high-limit gaming areas, private gaming salons, and also a dedicated poker room. In the same way, it would be accompanying 14,000 square foot “entertainment zone” that will house a sportsbook.
As a matter of fact, two hotel towers will offer a combined 3,500 rooms, which includes luxury suites, villas, penthouses, open balconies, and even a sky casino. Then, Scott Sibella, president of Resorts World Las Vegas, mentioned that the goal is to “redefine the luxury hotel standard in Las Vegas”. In like manner, the complex will come with 350,000 square feet of meeting and convention space, with seven unique pools, and 75,000 square feet of day and nightclub.
Overall, Resorts World will “wow” Strip pedestrians with a 50-foot diameter video globe displaying more than six thousand square feet of LED content which is one of the world’s largest and with the East Tower with a 19,000 square-foot display. Not to mention that Sibella likes the location and firmly believes that the northern end of the Strip would be ready for a resurgence. Besides, he’s also optimistic regarding the future of Circus Circus in Ruffin’s hands, and The Drew is scheduled to open just north across the street in 2022.
As has been noted, not only getting hinted that the Resorts World would open in late 2020 but also it seems that the project would be delayed again. Although it was a project that dates back to 2007 when Boyd Gaming demolished the Stardust Resort and Casino. Then what’re a few more months to wait? Genting mentioned that the integrated resort is now expected to open in the summer of 2021.
