Resorts World Las Vegas Brings Luxury Gaming to the Strip
Resorts World Las Vegas drew a whopping 20,000 people to the Strip on its opening night. The first newly built casino resort on the Las Vegas Strip since the Cosmopolitan opened in 2010, Genting Group’s latest development promises to lead casinos into the future.
Resorts World Las Vegas has three hotel collections from Hilton. With smart capabilities, digital keys, and even an integrated mobile app, Resorts World Las Vegas shows just what luxury hotels of the future could be like. Where the casino truly shines, however, is in its gaming floor. Featuring a 117,000-square-foot casino with over 1,400 slot machines, 117 table games, and a dedicated poker room, all on top of high-limit areas and its own on-site sportsbook, Resorts World Las Vegas offers more than the usual gaming fare.
Inspired and spurred by the success of online gaming sites, Resorts World Las Vegas has integrated premium slots into their offerings. Online gaming sites have successfully used premium slots and elements of pop culture to cultivate an industry that is expected to grow to $100 billion by 2026. Foxy Bingo, one of the oldest and most respected online gaming sites, has appealed to players by offering slots themed after timeless sitcom FRIENDS and game shows like Deal or No Deal and Wheel of Fortune. Moreover, research by Facts and Factors has found that other top brands use the availability of games and ease of access to mobile applications to draw in players. Resorts World Las Vegas has taken notice of this and given modern gamers the luxury gaming experience they want.
"As the first ground-up resort development on the Strip in more than a decade, Resorts World Las Vegas is committed to integrating innovative technology conveniences across the resort to enhance the overall guest journey," said Scott Sibella, President of Resorts World Las Vegas.
One of the most innovative features of the gaming floor is that it’s the first Las Vegas casino to give patrons the option to go completely cash-free. Guests will have access to a Resorts World app, which lets them pay for any of the gaming stations – as well as other hotel offerings – right from their smartphones. They can also easily deposit money into their digital wallets through kiosks found throughout the gaming floor, the player services desk, or by connecting a bank account, credit card, or PayPal account to their app.
House chips are also implanted with sensors that track every bet, split, double-down, and side wager, making the gaming experience all the more convenient. “It’s all RFID,” said casino operations chief Rick Hutchins. “The table knows exactly what I’m betting.”
Resorts World Las Vegas is also set to be the first casino-resort to strike a partnership with a cryptocurrency exchange in the near future.
Of course, Resorts World Las Vegas has not forgotten to carry the luxury experience into its gaming floor. The Crockfords Casino & Lounge gives guests the chance to experience the true height of luxury, with personalized lounge service, high-limit games, and even curated VIP experiences.
