Resorts World Las Vegas Review 2022

The Resorts World Las Vegas is the newest resort to be developed on the Las Vegas strip, and it’s also the most expensive, costing more than $4 billion!

Despite their impressive budget and attention to architectural detail, the Resorts World Las Vegas location just doesn’t live up to the hype. Many people were eagerly awaiting the resort’s completion, and it eventually opened in June of 2021. The resort was meant to be both a culinary pinnacle of the Las Vegas Strip, as well as a premier gambling arena.

In our opinion, Resorts World succeeded in one of those goals. Their selection of unique restaurants and food options makes it an enticing place to spend a few days, also considering that their hotel rooms are quite inexpensive.

But, with a lukewarm casino floor, paltry sportsbook, and scarcity of entertainment options, Resorts World succeeds in being an alright place to stay on the Vegas Strip.

Resorts World is located on the southern end of Las Vegas Boulevard, across the street from Convention Center Drive. The Circus Circus Hotel and Casino sits directly behind Resorts world, and shares West Resorts World Drive.

Even farther along the boulevard, you’ll run into Treasure Island Hotel and Casino and The Venetian Resort.

Pro Tips for Visitors to Resorts World

  • Check the Resorts World Las Vegas Offers page on their website. They frequently post package deals or promotions that can score you up to 35% off your reservation.
  • For the cheapest rates, book rooms at the Hilton. It’s by far the least expensive of the three hotels that make up Resorts World.
  • Make sure to account for the daily $45 resort fee that’s tacked onto every reservation.
  • Use the Red: Digital Concierge. Through the app, you can ask for wake up calls, make reservations, or order room service, all digitally!

Gambling at Resorts World Las Vegas

In total, Resorts World Las Vegas has 117,000 square feet of casino floor, making it one of the largest casinos in Las Vegas. Their expertise lies with high-roller games, and they have an exclusive high-limit casino, the Crockfords Casino and Lounge.

This VIP casino features personalized lounge service and curated cocktail service from the Crockfords bar. Generally, the limits on the table games throughout the casino are higher than the average table limit in Vegas, but occasionally you’ll be able to find low-limit tables during the weekdays.

But, one of the coolest parts about playing at Resorts World is the ability for wireless gambling. You can download the Play+ app, which allows you to connect your favorite e-Wallet and fund slot machines, table games, or shop at restaurants and stores without your card or cash.

While this makes it easy to get carried away with gambling, it can be a good way to limit yourself if you only deposit a certain amount of cash in your e-Wallet.

Slots

Slot Machines at Resorts World
In total, Resorts World has 1,400 slots machines, including a massive Buffalo Link slot machine kiosk that’s dead-center of the casino floor.

There isn’t a whole lot to say about the slots selection at Resorts World. It’s sort of par for the course of most Las Vegas hotels and casinos.

The denominations range from penny slots to $1,000 per spin, with higher end slot machines taking up residence in one of the three high-roller lounges.

Resorts World does have a few interesting video slots machines, including:

  • Back to the Future
  • Lord of the Rings
  • Willy Wonka

Video Poker

Located near the food court, the video poker selection at Resorts World is fairly diverse. They have small denomination games of 25 cents, and they have higher denominations, usually capped at $5.

There are a few higher-level machines in the Crocksfords Lounge, with denominations as high as $100.

You’ll be able to find video poker slots like:

  • Jacks or Better
  • Double Bonus
  • Double Double Bonus
  • Ultimate X
  • Ultimate X Bonus Streak
  • Spin Poker
  • Super Triple Play
  • Three Way Action
  • Split Card
  • Dream Card

Table Games

Resorts World offers 117 table games, most of which are in the higher limits. Let’s start out with the blackjack tables:

  • 6:5 Blackjack with min. $15 bet
  • 6:5 Blackjack with min. $25 bet
  • High Limit Blackjack with min. $100 bet

The maximum bet for the lower limit tables is $5,000, while the max bet for the high roller table is $10,000.

Moving on, Resorts World has three kinds of roulette:

  • American Roulette
  • Sands Roulette
  • European Roulette

Sands Roulette is a newer variation of the game, first introduced at The Venetian. It has three 0 slots instead of one or two. The limits on the roulette tables at Resorts World are $15 to $500 for American and Sands, and $100 to $1,000 for European. The European Roulette wheel resides in the high-limit section.

In addition, Resorts World has games like:

  • Baccarat ($25 to $20,000)
  • Craps ($25 to $5,000)
  • Crazy 4 Poker ($25 to $500)
  • Face Up Pai Gow Poker ($15 to $10,000)
  • Three Card Poker ($25 to $500)
  • Ultimate Texas Hold’em ($15 to $500)
  • Let it Ride ($15 to $500)
  • Mississippi Stud ($15 to $500)

If you’re looking for a faster pace card game, you can always try out Resorts World’s video table games. They have video roulette, craps, baccarat, and Fortune Cup.

Poker Room

Not all Las Vegas casinos can boast a poker room, but Resorts World certainly can! Their expansive poker room features 30 tables with seating for 10 people at each table. Usually there are only a few games running unless there’s a tournament happening. You can participate in daily poker tournaments for prizes of $3,000 or more, twice daily.

The Resorts World Las Vegas poker room has food service from most major restaurants in the resort, and it has convenient parking at the Hilton Hotel Parking lot.

Players who are looking to exclusively play poker are eligible for reduced room rates, including $99 rooms Sunday through Thursday, and $149 rooms Friday and Saturday.

Most poker variations are available on demand, but the most popular games that happen around the clock are:

  • No Limit Holdem (1/3 to 100/200)
  • Pot Limit Omaha Hi (1/2 to 100/200)
  • Limit Holdem (max 150/300)
  • Limit Omaha 8/b (max 150/300)

Casino Promotions

Resorts World Las Vegas doesn’t currently offer any promotions, but they do have a pretty extensive rewards program that can net you some impressive comp points.

The Genting Rewards program has four tiers:

Tier Point Level
SkyClassic 0 – 99 Tier Points
SkySilver 100 – 299 Tier points
SkyGold 300 + Tier points
SkyPlatinum 10,000 Tier points (invite only)

Earning points is pretty simple, even though they don’t outline this information on their website, if you ask anyone at the customer service desk or the cashier’s desk, they’ll tell you what you need to know. Here’s the break-down of earning points:

Point-Earning Method Conversion
Slots $1 = 3 points
Video Poker $3.50 = 3 points
Table Games $1 in ADT = 20 points
Retail $1 = 5 points
Nightlife $1 = 1 point

*The comp rate for your points is 1,000 to $1.

It’s interesting to see how easy it is to move up the ranks of the tier list. After a night of gambling the slots, you might be a Gold Tier rewards member. And being in the higher tiers certainly affords you more benefits at Genting locations, including Resorts World.

For example, members can earn points by book rooms, and can even redeem some of their points for free stays at select locations. Cardholders are invited to membership programs, events, and parties before the general public, and in the higher tiers you have VIP access to tournaments, shows, and other events.

Not to mention you’ll have exclusive access to dining outlets and private dining rooms. At select locations with the Platinum membership, you’ll have Chef’s Table seating and invitations to private dining events.

Plus, Gold and Platinum members are privy to the exclusive VIP Gold and Platinum gaming areas, with unique high-limit games.

Sports Betting at Resort World

During our Resorts World Las Vegas review, we were kind of underwhelmed with the sports betting options. Normally, big Las Vegas casinos will partner with a reputable sportsbook to offer both mobile and in-person betting options.

Resorts World opted to create their own sportsbook, which you have to download from their website before you can place a sports bet.

Their Live Betting Sports App is available for both iOS and Android, but you have to complete a mobile wagering application to sign up.

Once you’ve downloaded the app, you can place sports bets on popular leagues, like the NFL, MLB, and NBA.

If you were looking for an all-in-one sportsbook lounge at Resorts World, you’ll leave disappointed. They do, however, offer some sportsbook features at the Dawg House Saloon. The sports bar is equipped with multiple TV screens for watching the big game, and the bar frequently has live entertainment.

All betting has to be done through the app, however, so you’re really only going to the Dawg House for the atmosphere, as you can use the betting app anywhere in the resort.

Staying at Resorts World: Rooms and Suites

Suite at Resorts World
Resorts World has three different hotel towers, the Hilton, the Conrad, and the Crockfords. In total, the resort hosts over 3,500 rooms and suites. While not the largest hotel in Vegas, it’s certainly a contender.

Here’s a breakdown of all the rooms, suites, villas, and palaces available at Resorts World Las Vegas.

The Hilton

Economy rooms at The Conrad range anywhere from $120 to $140, making them a bit more expensive than the Hilton’s rooms. However, you do have access to more square footage, and better views. Suites will run you anywhere from $400 to $700 per night.

Just like the Hilton’s economy rooms, rooms at the Conrad come with a TV, mobile charging station, a safe, and other common hotel amenity.

Suites, on the other hand, take luxury to a new level. Suite rooms have wet bars, private powder rooms, walk-in closets with a vanity, as well as freestanding bathtubs, writing desks, and sofa beds.

The Crocksford

The Crocksford offers much the same in terms of rooms and suites as the Hilton does. Where their real expertise comes in is with their villas and palaces, the premium hotel experience for VIP guests.

Two Bedroom Pool Villa – This estate-style villa at Resorts World has gated entry with a private lobby entrance. Inside the villa, you’re treated to 24-hour luxury Ambassador service, floor-to-ceiling views of the Las Vegas Strip, a walk-in rain shower, and many other luxury bath amenities. Outside, you have full run of the outdoor garden, pool, kitchen, and dining area, as well as access to the massage room, sauna, and steam shower. And don’t forget about the cinema!

Four Bedroom Chairman’s Villa – On the 65th floor, the Chairman’s Villa overlooks the Strip, with an impressive view of the Vegas lights. At 5,500 square feet, this villa has a billiards table, a full wet bar, a karaoke system, and much more. What might be the most impressive part is the four ensuite bathrooms with walk-in closets. Or maybe it’s the full kitchen with residential grade appliances. Regardless, this villa is bound to impress even the wealthiest of guests.

Three Bedroom Palace – This palace makes the Chairman’s Villa look like a budge apartment. The exclusive access to a private pool and en-suite garden make this the perfect place for summer relaxation. The gourmet patio kitchen is great for grilling up snacks for guests, while the state-of-the-art cinema room is well-equipped for a family movie night. In addition, this 6,500 square foot palace includes complimentary access to the 66th floor Starlight Lounge.

Four Bedroom Palace – As the crown jewel of Resorts World Las Vegas, this palace clocks in at 7,000 square feet. It includes a private garden, pool, outdoor kitchen, and spa area, as well as a game room, movie room, and a fully-stocked wet bar. Enter through the private lobby and visit the lobby bar for top-shelf cocktails. All four bedrooms have an ensuite bathroom with walk-in closets and soaking tubs. An just like the three bedroom palace, you have access to the 66th floor Starlight Lounge.

Resorts World Las Vegas Restaurants

Resorts World Las Vegas advertises a culinary adventure, and they certainly deliver on their promise. At Resorts World, their dining options run the gamut, with everything from authentic Chinese cuisine to mouth-watering American steaks.

Their food options can be broken up into a couple of different sections, including fine dining, casual restaurants, famous food, and quick meals.

Below we’ll highlight a few of our favorite food and beverage outlets at Resorts World!

Writer’s Pick: Kusa Nori

Kusa Nori at Resorts World
Of all the fancy dining locations at Resorts World, Kusa Nori impressed us the most. This modern Japanese bistro combines traditional Japanese dishes with a contemporary dining experience. Primary a seafood restaurant, Kusa Nori features classic dishes like Shrimp Tempura and Octopus Carpaccio. Plus, their extensive ingredient list lets you customize your own Sashimi and Nigiri, as well as crafted Maki and specialty rolls.

Or, if you’re not a big seafood person, you can try the Wagyu Striploin, complete with Kusa Nori signature garnishes.

No matter your dining preference, there’s a wine pairing for you! Choose from classic reds and whites, or try delicate Sake or signature cocktails. For beer drinkers, you can try imported Japanese beers like Asahi, Sapporo, and Kirin Light.

Casual Dining

Resorts World’s casual dining options provide a more laid-back dining experience, with comfort food options to help you relax after a day of tourism and prepare for a night of gambling. At Resorts World, you can choose between classic American diner food like burgers and fries, or you can branch out and try a lasagna pizza!

  • Mulberry Street Pizzeria – Authentic Pizzas with Specialty Toppings
  • Dawg House Saloon & Sportsbook – Nashville-style Sports Bar
  • Tacos El Cabrón – San Diego-style Mexican Cuisine

Writer’s Pick: The Kitchen

The Kitchen at Resorts World
Normally, we’re not impressed by buffets—they’re usually nothing special. But, The Kitchen at Resorts World gives the buffet-style new life. Their all-you-can-eat buffet offers all the American classics, from fried chicken to ice cream.

And if the buffet food isn’t for you, you can order something off their menu. Start off with a classic Caesar Salad and move onto a Jidori Chicken, Baked Lasagna, or a Southwest Chicken Wrap, your choice!

Plus, the neat restaurant design blows the classic buffet style out of the water! Just look at this sophisticated dining area!

Famous Foods

We have to say, Resorts World certainly went all out when they were designing their food court. With all the inventive options for fast-and-easy meals, making a choice might take up the most time! Their goal was to bring as many culinary influences together in one place, from Asian street markets to Nashville chicken houses. They’ve certainly succeeded in that goal!

  • Sweet Eats – Gourmet Desserts
  • Ah Chun Shandong Dumping – Fresh Dumplings and Hand-Pulled Noodles
  • Fuhu Shack – Peking Duck Burritos
  • Here Kitty Kitty Vice Den – A Cozy Speakeasy

  • Ten Suns Braised Beef – Thai-style Beef Dishes
  • Tiger Sugar – Taiwanese Bubble Tea
  • Nori Bar – Hand-rolled Sashimi
  • Mozz Bar – Italian Sandwiches
  • Blood Bros. BBQ – Texas Barbecue

Writer’s Pick: Springleaf Prata Place

One of the most unique and interest food joints at Resorts World Las Vegas has to be the Springleaf Prata Place, which classifies itself as a Roti Canai Eatery.

The Springleaf features authentic Indian cuisine from both South and North India. The family-owned restaurant specializes in tasty roti canai (a kind of pita bread) as well as their delicious chicken curry and Nasia Lemak, a traditional Indian dish.

This quaint eatery has earned a Michelin Plate award and continues to be a highlight of Resorts World’s food center.

Quick Eats

If you’re in need of a quick snack, there are a couple places you can turn to at Resorts World. First, you can use their GrubHub-powered room service to bring all of Las Vegas’s food and beverage world right to your threshold!

Or, you can stop by one of the two Starbucks at Resorts World for a fresh cup of coffee and a specialty muffin. If coffee isn’t your style, you can try Craig’s Vegan, which offers unique frozen vegan ice creams and other treats.

Want ice cream with an extra kick? Aubi & Ramsa offer 21+ boozy ice cream flavors, a perfect way to end off a night of clubbing.

And finally, to fuel your day of pool-side fun, Resorts World has Bites, a snack bar located next to the family pool.

Drinking and Nightlife at Resorts World

Zouk Nightclub
One of the most exciting parts about visiting Las Vegas is the gambling, yes, but also the wonderful nightlife!

Resorts World as a great selection of bars and lounges, ranging from the classy speakeasy to the popping nightclub! Here’s a list of their drinking establishments:

  • Eight – A Cigar and Whiskey Lounge
  • Genting Place Lounge – Small Bites from Genting Palace and Classic Cocktails

These seasonal Veuve Clicquot igloos offer a nightly rooftop experience, with fine dining, drinking, and an amazing view of the Las Vegas Strip. These igloos are only available by reservation, and are only at Resorts World for a limited time! They make the perfect spot for an evening Valentine’s Day date.

For a sunlight party, turn up to the Ayu Dayclub, with poolside music, private cabanas, and gorgeous palm tree shade.

Entertainment

Carrie Underwood Reflection: The Las Vegas Residency
As far as entertainment goes, we were a bit disappointed at Resorts World Las Vegas’ lineup. Sure, they have some upcoming shows with big-name artists, but generally, they lack the flair or uniqueness of places like the Wynn or Sahara, just down the street.

Upcoming shows at Resorts World include:

  • Luke Bryan – Feb. 11-26
  • Katy Perry – Select dates from Mar. 2 – Aug. 13
  • Carrie Underwood – Select dates until May 2022
  • Michael Bublé – Apr. 27

We’re not upset that they’re bringing big talent to their resort, we’re just saying that they should be putting their 5,000-seat theater to work. We’d like to see more variety when it comes to live shows, maybe add in some comedy shows or magic events.

Attractions

When it comes to attractions, the Strat has the SkyPod, the Wynn has the Lake of Dreams. What does Resorts World have?

Well, they have GLOW.

GLOW is a one-of-a-kind multimedia performance, pairing optical illusions with upbeat music. There are two GLOW areas at Resorts World: the indoor globe that’s 50ft in diameter, and the display on the exterior of the West Tower, 100,000 square feet.

GLOW shows occur every day on the hour from noon until 1 am, and they’re a must see, even if you’re not staying at Resorts World for the night.

Check out a sneak peak of the GLOW performance on the indoor globe:

Luxury Amenities

Awana Spa at Resorts World
The amenities at Resorts World Las Vegas aren’t over the top like some other Las Vegas resorts, but they are exceptionally luxurious.

One of the prime points of interest is their spa, known as the Awana Spa. The immersive facilities offer a range of wellness and rejuvenation services inspired by both European and Eastern practices.

You can arrange for a couple’s massage, foot spa treatments, or organic facials. While you’re in the spa, visit the Fountain of Youth, a set of 6 vitality pools within a heated laconium room. And for a restful relaxation session, schedule time at the Art of Aufguss, a themed sauna that employs concentrated heat and aromatherapy combined with choreographed lightshows and music.

All services of the Awana Spa require a reservation, but Resorts World hotel guests can receive special pricing.

In addition to the spa, Resorts World also has a fitness center, which is only available for hotel guests via their hotel key. The fitness center features all the popular workout equipment, including treadmills, ellipticals, rowing machines, as well as free weights and yoga equipment.

For more specialized workout routines and assistance, you can schedule time with one of Resorts World’s in-house personal trainers.

Shopping at Resorts World Las Vegas

Not everyone thinks of Las Vegas as being the hub of shopping, but there are certainly plenty of options for luxury and designer outlets. Resorts World curated multiple designer boutiques for their 70,000 square foot shopping center, making it the perfect place to treat yourself after your big win at the roulette wheel.

In the shopping center, you’ll find:

  • Black Clover
  • Corso
  • DR Refresh
