Las Vegas is home to some of the biggest and best casino-resorts in the world. That includes the Venetian Casino-Resort, located directly on the Strip. This week, officials within the Las Vegas Sands Corp. offered an exciting update on the reopening of the LV Venetian.
Many believe this is the best casino in Nevada. Today, we’re going to discuss when the Venetian may allow guests to return. We’ll also look at what some of the other casino companies in Las Vegas have planned for the future.
Let’s get into it!
Las Vegas Casino Guidelines Have Been Approved
Things are very different in Las Vegas right now. They have been for months. Casinos remain shut down and the normally-bustling Strip is now essentially empty. People around the country have been discussing when the city can finally get back to some sense of normalcy.
That can’t be accomplished unless casinos reopen. This city is known as the gambling hub of the United States. Some of the world’s best gambling venues and hotels are located here and under normal circumstances, they make a killing.
All of the casinos in Nevada have been closed since March. It’s been devastating for this city that’s known to rely so heavily on its gambling and tourism industry. Fortunately, things may begin to change over the next few weeks.
Not long ago, Nevada’s Gaming Commission officially approved a set of guidelines to reopen the casinos here. This government body seems to feel that enough safety measures can be set in place to keep the public safe inside these gambling venues. Some are complaining that these guidelines have not been made public, though.
This approval was a big moment for the state and many of its residents. Reopening casinos is one of the most important ways to restart the state’s economy. This week, one of the biggest and most beloved casino-resorts in Las Vegas revealed it’s likely to open back up next month.
Officials Offer Exciting Update On the Reopening of the LV Venetian
Those who have been to Las Vegas have probably checked out The Venetian Casino-Resort. It was first constructed back in 1999 and is considered one of the best venues in the entire city. When included into the entire Venetian Resort Complex, it’s the second-largest hotel in the world.
The Venetian is owned and operated by Las Vegas Sands, one of the biggest and most profitable gaming companies in the United States. Like all other casino companies in Las Vegas, LVS is losing an incredible amount of money every day due to the current regulations. That may finally change next, though.
Today, this casino’s website revealed that it’s accepting reservations beginning on June 1st. A new company statement claims that the reopening of the LV Venetian will come in several stages. Fortunately, the casino floor is expected to open back up, as well as more than a dozen restaurants.
This casino-resort will be operating under the Venetian Clean guidelines. This is intended to minimize the risk to guests and staff. This casino also claims it will test all employees for Covid-19 in the weeks leading up to opening day.
Many are already getting excited. The reopening of the LV Venetian means that more major casino-resorts are set to do the same. Hope is that enough tourists begin flocking to the city to start turning things around.
Here’s what some of the other major Las Vegas casino-resorts have planned.
More LV Casino Companies Prepare for Reopening
Las Vegas Sands is just one of many companies currently suffering from the casino shutdown in Nevada. As time goes on, however, more of these companies are beginning to make plans for a major reopening. That’s especially true now that The Venetian plans to accept guests next month.
MGM Resorts is working to entice guests in a number of ways. News has just surfaced that the company will offer free parking upon reopening. Owners of the Cosmopolitan Hotel & Casino are taking the same approach.
Wynn Resorts has been working on reopening plans for weeks. It seems likely that thermal cameras will be installed inside the casino to detect those with a fever. There’s even a rumor that Las Vegas Sands is considering purchasing Wynn Resorts.
Things are stranger in Las Vegas right now than ever before. No one really knows how things will look even after the casinos open their doors to guests. Will Las Vegas stop being what it grew so popular for?
The reopening of the LV Venetian is now slated for June 1st. Nevada’s state leaders are likely to comment on this decision over the next few days.
