There have been some fantastic new casinos that recently opened their doors in Las Vegas. Circa Casino might be the most exciting one in decades. New reports claim that this incredible new Downtown casino-resort has finally decided to open some of its amenities for visitors during New Year’s Eve!
It’s exciting news for visitors to this city. New Year’s Eve will be considerably different here this year. There’s still something to look forward to, though. Today, we’ll discuss some of Circa’s big upcoming plans!
Let’s check it out.
Midweek Hotel-Casino Closures Continue in Las Vegas
We’ve seen a huge number of the biggest casinos across the United States shut down recently. Some of this has been state-ordered. Over in Illinois, for example, officials have forced commercial casinos to close their doors until further notice.
In other cases, casinos are choosing to close their doors on their own. Major casino hubs such as Las Vegas have been seeing major drops in revenue over the past nine months. Consistent drops in tourism seem to be to blame here.
Some of the biggest casinos have recently announced midweek closures. That includes The Palazzo, operated by Las Vegas Sands. The owners of this property have been claiming that this venue has seen large drops in visitors recently. As a result, it’s closing its doors from Monday to Wednesday evening.
Mirage Las Vegas is also deciding to take this step. This property has just revealed that it will soon close all of its operations between Monday and Wednesday. This measure will remain in place until further notice.
Downtown Las Vegas is still seeing drops in its visitor rates. This appears to be getting worse as the winter continues. It’s tough news for Circa Casino-Resort, the newest gambling venue to open its doors in this area of the city.
There are some big changes being made at this property recently. It appears the owners are ramping things up for New Year’s Eve weekend!
Here’s a Look at What is Happening With Circa Casino Right Now
There’s a good chance you’ve heard of Circa Las Vegas over the years. This casino has been under construction for years and was expected to be one of the best new venues in the city. Finally, in late October, this gambling venue opened its doors to the public.
It wasn’t the grand opening that the owners had hoped for. Las Vegas continues to see major drops in tourism. Hope was that this venue would immediately bring in massive amounts of revenue and help to bring more tourists to the Downtown area of Las Vegas.
This casino-resort hasn’t completely opened up. In fact, some of the amenities have remained closed to the public since the property began accepting guests. New reports claim that is about to change, though.
Reports have just surfaced claiming that the tallest Circa hotel tower north of the Strip is about to open to the public. This gives guests incredible views of the Las Vegas valley. Derek Stevens, one of the owners of this property, spoke about his excitement with this project to the media this week.
“This project is clearly my largest project that my brother and I have been involved with, and I think it’s even more special with what’s happening in 2020 because we’re in a community that needs jobs and when I had the opportunity to meet some of the different divisions, our table divisions, slot division, bartenders, it’s amazing to see how much emotion is coming out when they can get back to work,” he said.
Many have been eagerly waiting for Circa Las Vegas to open its largest tower. Soon, the more than 500 rooms here will become available to stay in. The new rooftop lounge will also be open prior to New Year’s Eve. Stay tuned for more news on Circa over the next couple of weeks!
What’s Happening With Resorts World Las Vegas?
For years, there’s been an incredible amount of hype placed on Resorts World Las Vegas. This property has been in the works for years and is now expected to open in the summer of 2021. It’s the most expensive casino-resort ever built in the city.
Interestingly, not many analysts have been talking about this property recently. Resorts World could have never predicted the state of the US casino industry right now. It’s a difficult situation for a brand new casino-resort to be in.
There’s reason to be excited, though. Some believe that 2021 could end up being a very successful year for Las Vegas. With the effective distribution of vaccines, many people around the country are going to want to travel. This could result in an economic boom for major entertainment hubs.
Resorts World would benefit greatly from this situation. This venue cost billions to construct and is expected to be unlike any other casino ever built in the city.
Circa Casino would also benefit from a massive surge in tourism next year. This property could help to transform the way people see the Downtown area.
