MGM Resorts will reopen the Excalibur casino while other venues will resume activities in the following weeks.
US.- MGM Resorts has announced it will reopen its fourth venue in Las Vegas after the two-month closure of all casinos in the city.
After already resuming operations at New York-New York, Bellagio and the MGM Grand last week, the group has announced it will reopen The Excalibur Hotel and Casino from Thursday (June 11).
Meanwhile, Caesars Entertainment has reopened The Flamingo, Harrah’s and Caesars Palace. Poker rooms were not opened with the rest of the casino.
MGM CEO Bill Hornbuckle told the Reno Gazette-Journal: “We are very pleased by the enthusiasm we are seeing from guests ready to come back to Las Vegas. As business demand increases, we are able to open additional properties and bring more of our employees back to work.”
The Las Vegas Review-Journal has reported that after the Excalibur reopening, Aria would be next on the list, reopening on July 4.
Hornbuckle also expects to reopen Park MGM, Luxor, Mirage and Mandalay Bay on a monthly or biweekly basis.
The Las Vegas gaming giant had furloughed more than 63,000 employees in response to the Covid-19 shutdown.
