Resorts World Las Vegas, a multi-billion dollar project over five years in the making, opened on June 24, 2021, on the north Strip.
Many, including RWLS’s president, Scott Sibella, hope the project will breath new life into the city’s tourism industry, still reeling from the effects of the pandemic, in addition to energizing an area of the Strip that has not been the target of major development in a long time.
The property was designed from the start for cashless technology, including cashless wagering and QR codes that allow guests to bypass the Reception desk for check-in.
