Despite being hit hard by the pandemic, the Las Vegas Strip has a new tenant. The new Asian-inspired $4.3 billion Resorts Worlds Casino and Hotel, opened Thursday, making it the first newly built casino in a decade.

It will include some of the first-ever mobile gaming tables and cashless casino slots. Malaysia-based Genting Berhad, the parent company of Resorts World, looked to break ground in 2015 but actual construction did not start until late 2017. Its opening date was also delayed multiple times due to redesigns of the project. 

The light-filled sleek designed resort includes 3,500 hotel rooms with 117,000 square feet of gambling space, 250,000 square feet of meeting space, and a 5,000-seat theater. The world’s most famous nightclub brand Singapore-born Zouk will also be held at Resort World.

Attractions you’ll find are a beach/nightclub, seven swimming pools, a “casual pre-game spot/millennial magnet” bar called RedTail, and a “vibe dining restaurant” called Fuhu. 

The residency list is impressively stacked with artists like Celine Dion, Katy Perry, Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, DJ Tiesto, and Zedd. Miley Cyrus also has a concert date.

Resort World is now the city’s most technologically advanced casino, guests will be able to make any payments using their mobile device. Gamblers can digitally load money by linking a bank account, credit card, or PayPal onto their digital wallets using on-site kiosks allowing for digital betting at gaming tables and cashless casino slots. 

The casino is hopeful that they will accept cryptocurrency for gambling and pay in the future through a partnership with crypto exchange company Gemini.
