Malaysia’s Genting Group opens huge casino resort in Las Vegas as pandemic starts to subside in US

Malaysia’s Genting Group in a late-night VIP party on June 24 local time in Las Vegas officially opened its new luxury hotel resort and casino Resort World Las Vegas, spanning over nearly 36 hectares at the north end of the Las Vegas Strip (map).

The Malaysian conglomerate through its resort and casino division invested $4.3 billion in the complex that is being dubbed “the most technologically advanced resort ever built” and is expected to benefit from the effective mass vaccination campaign in the US that allows a return to entertainment activities across the country.

Resort World Las Vegas is the first new resort and casino opening in more than a decade in the US gambling city. It also comes at a crucial time for Las Vegas, which is rebounding from an economically crippling shutdown.

Hotel with 3,500 rooms, 40 food and beverage outlets

The casino resort features 3,500 guest rooms operated by Hilton and its brands Conrad and Crockfords at a three-star classification, 40 food and beverage outlets, a concert and entertainment venue with a capacity of 5,000 guests, over 6,500 square meters of retail space, more than 23,200 square meters of meeting and banquet space and a similarly sized pool complex.

The casino floor measures 10.870 square meters and features 117 game tables and 1,400 slot machines, plus five private gaming salons and high-limit areas.

Completely cashless operations, cryptocurrencies planned

In terms of technological innovation, the resort is completely cashless, with casino and resort guests using digital wallets for everything from slot machines to game tables to restaurants to pool drinks to night entertainment. The keyless hotel rooms can be entered via a Bluetooth connection from a smartphone. Guests can also connect with the Las Vegas Convention Center campus through an underground tunnel system using electric vehicles from Elon Musk’s Tesla. The resort further sports the world’s largest outdoor video screen.

The casino resort is also working on integrating cryptocurrencies into its revenue stream. It is cooperating with New York-based crypto exchange Gemini to explore how guests may at some point gamble and pay for property amenities and dining with digital currencies.
