Resorts World Las Vegas, the first ground-up resort development on the Las Vegas Strip in more than a decade, will officially open its doors on June 24, 2021.
Resorts World Las Vegas has partnered with Hilton to provide 3,500 luxury guest rooms and suites from the three premium Hilton brands – the largest multi-brand deal in Hilton’s history – including the largest Conrad Hotels & Resorts property in the world, one of the first LXR Hotels & Resorts locations in the U.S., and a marquee Hilton Hotels & Resorts hotel.
The properties will provide over 40 food and beverage options, 70,000 square feet of dedicated retail space, and the next-generation casino floor will feature 117,000 square feet of gaming space with slots, table games, a dedicated poker room, high-limit areas and a sportsbook. The casino has already booked Celine Dion, Carrie Underwood, Katy Perry as headliners at the 5,000-capacity concert and entertainment venue.
….and you will be able to pay for most of it with cryptocurrency.
Resorts World announced a deal with Gemini, a cryptocurrency exchange company, that would allow customers to utilize cryptocurrencies at the $4.3 billion Strip resort.
Resorts World said the companies are pursuing the creation and implementation of crypto-friendly services at best-in-class institutional rates that would allow customers to use their Gemini crypto wallet at the 3,500-room resort.
In a statement, company officials said the goal of Resorts World Las Vegas is for the property to become “one of the most crypto-friendly resorts on the Las Vegas Strip.”
Despite a statement in the announcement that said Gemini and Resorts World would pursue creation and implementation of crypto-friendly services “across all areas of the integrated resort experience,” gaming can’t be included under current Nevada law.
It is only a matter of time….
