Resorts World Las Vegas, the first resort built on the Las Vegas Strip in more than a decade, officially opened its doors for business this week. The monumental launch featured a ceremonial ribbon cutting officiated by Genting CEO & Chairman KT Lim.
President Scott Sibella, Lim and Sibella were joined by Hilton President and CEO Chris Nassetta; Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak; Clark County Commission Chair Marilyn Kirkpatrick; Clark County Commissioner Tick Segerblom; and Nevada Congresswoman Dina Titus.
The new venue features 117,000 square feet of gaming space including 1,400 slots, 117 table games, a dedicated Poker room and 30 poker tables, high-limit areas, and a sportsbook. The casino aims to redefine the traditional gaming experience by introducing the most technologically advanced casino and gaming operation within one integrated resort with cashless wagering, RFID bet tracking, and Ticket-in-Ticket out (TITO) at the table.
“This is a very proud moment for Genting and our Resorts World Las Vegas family as we are honored to officially open our doors,” said Sibella. “This spectacular resort was designed to usher in a new era of hospitality in Las Vegas with unsurpassed dining and entertainment, an array of luxury hotel accommodations, and new-age technology.
“We are excited to finally be able to present this resort to the world and officially welcome guests to experience our exceptional amenities firsthand. We are grateful for all of the support we received during our opening and truly hope our community and visitors enjoy all of the hard work that went into creating this incredible property.”
“We are thrilled to unveil Resorts World Las Vegas – an incredible property that marks the return of our signature Hilton hospitality on the Strip,” said Nassetta. “Together, Hilton, Genting and Resorts World Las Vegas are committed to delivering unforgettable experiences for our guests, and this new resort raises the bar for Las Vegas.”
