There are several incredible new hotel-casinos scheduled to open in Las Vegas over the next 10 months. One that many are excited about is Circa las Vegas, located in the Downtown area of the city. New reports claim this property has officially received a license from the Nevada Gaming Commission to open next month.
It’s exciting news to hear. Many believe that Circa could quickly transform Downtown Las Vegas into one of the hottest areas of the city. It’s easy to see why. Now is the perfect time to look at what this hotel-casino has to offer its guests.
Let’s get into it!
Downtown Las Vegas is Working Hard to Boost Tourism
When most people think of Las Vegas nowadays, the image of the Strip comes to mind. It’s easy to see why, as this area is home to many of the biggest and best casino-resorts in the world. Downtown Las Vegas has always been a popular gambling destination too, and seems to be improving right now.
There are many great casinos in this section of Las Vegas. Many are owned by the Stevens brothers. Of course, all of the Downtown Las Vegas casinos were forced to close their doors back in March and didn’t reopen until late June.
The focus for these casino owners is now bringing in new players. Casinos have taken many different measures to achieve this goal. Not everything is running smoothly for them, though. News recently came out that the Fremont Hotel-Casino was facing official complaints for unrightfully detaining one of its patrons.
It’s been a difficult year for all of the casinos in Las Vegas. Revenue earnings are considerably lower right now than they were in 2019. That seems unlikely to change anytime soon and may even get worse as winter rolls around.
One of the most exciting new properties scheduled to open here is Circa Las Vegas. Gambling fans around the country have been eagerly awaiting news on when this hotel-casino would open its doors. It now appears we have an answer.
NGC Finally Grants Casino License to Circa Las Vegas
There are a number of large casinos being constructed in Las Vegas. To the surprise of many analysts, Circa Las Vegas has been one of the most-anticipated hotel-casinos in the city. It’s owned by the aforementioned Stevens brothers and should prove to be the most impressive venue ever built in Downtown Las Vegas.
There’s a lot of exciting features of this property. Most of the attention the media is giving this property is on its swimming pool. This is a multi-level resort pool featuring one of the largest television screens in the entire city.
Everyone knew that Circa would be opening its doors sometime in 2020. With the events unfolding around the world, however, no one seemed to know exactly when this property would begin accepting guests. One of the main delays was obtaining a casino license from the Nevada Gaming Commission.
This process is now officially complete. News has just surfaced that this property has finally obtained its elusive license from the NGC. That guarantees the casinos opening on October 28th. It’s important to note that the hotel won’t open up until December.
Circa Las Vegas may help to significantly boost tourism in Las Vegas. The casino floor here features nearly the same number of gambling options as the Golden Gate and D Las Vegas combined. It will be interesting to see how many tourists flock to this new venue once it finally opens its doors.
Stay tuned for more updates on Circa over the next few weeks.
The Las Vegas Virgin Hotel Will Open in Early 2021
As we already mentioned, there are a number of exciting new casino-resorts scheduled to open their doors in Las Vegas over the next few months. This week, we officially received news that the Las Vegas Virgin Hotel will be opening up in early 2021.
This is Virgin’s first foray into the land-based gambling industry. The company’s new casino will open in the same location as the former Hard Rock Hotel. Company officials have been working hard to make this one of the best new gambling venues in the city.
Virgin Hotel’s project was delayed several times this year. The initial hope was for this hotel-casino to begin accepting guests sometime late into 2020. That proved impossible with the delays in the renovation.
Las Vegas will soon be treated to a wave of new casino-resorts. Most of the owners of these venues could never have predicted how things look the way they do now. The gambling and tourism industry in Las Vegas is still struggling and may remain that way for years.
These casino owners aren’t letting that slow them down, though. Hopefully, these new properties help to stimulate Nevada’s tourism industry and bring casinos some much-needed revenue.
