Another Las Vegas Strip Casino Reopens
Another Las Vegas Strip casino reopened Thursday, leaving only a small number of casinos closed out of the COVID-19 triggered shutdown from mid-March.
Tropicana Las Vegas reopened for business Thursday, leaving only a couple of properties on the Strip locked with no time for reopening. Doors opened at 10 a.m. and can function under certain constraints to ensure a secure environment, such as many other Nevada casinos.
Tropicana will operate at 50 percent power, slot machines will be dispersed out and signage will be set through the casinos to guarantee social distancing happens proved only a number of those rules that the land fulfilled. The casino is simply one of two Penn National Gaming-owned casinos in Las Vegas and its just Strip property.
Tropicana was initially scheduled to reopen September 1 but pushed back those programs by a couple of weeks. The opening comes only a couple of weeks later MGM reopened the Mirage August 27. The Mirage, that had been the mecca for poker at the pre-Moneymaker age, didn’t reopen its poker area with the remaining portion of the property. The region is now full of slot machines, partially briefly.
MGM also announced that it might reopen the final of its Strip possessions, Park MGM, September 30. If it reopens, Park MGM will end up Las Vegas’ before all else smoke-free casino.
The moves leave just Planet Hollywood and Cromwell as the only two Strip properties without a reopening date. Both are owned by Caesars Entertainment. The off-strip casino, and home of the World Series of Poker, the Rio, is still locked as well.
Station Casinos has yet to announce a time frame for the four casinos it had said will stay locked for the time being.
