Las Vegas Reopening June 4 Target Date
Las Vegas is moving one step closer to reopening with the news that Nevada’s governor is going to consider wider reopenings including in the gaming industry. In a recent announcement Governor Steve Sisolak said he would hold a press conference on May 26, 2020 to announce the next phase of Nevada’s reopening.
That same day the Nevada Gaming Control Board is scheduled to meet with officials to determine the safety of reopening the state’s casinos. If that goes well and the data continues to trend in a positive direction, they could sign off on the reopening of Nevada Gaming which would pave the way for an announcement of a June 4 reopening by the Governor.
Hotels to Open Sooner?
It’s possible some of the hotels attached to casinos could reopen before the casinos are allowed to. Venetian Las Vegas has announced a June 1 reopening of its hotel and we know Caesars and MGM Resorts are taking reservations for some hotels from June 1, 2020 onward as well. We will see if these dates get adjusted when the Governor makes his announcement.
When the Vegas Strip reopens it won’t be fully back to normal for awhile. Smaller players like Wynn, Venetian, Cosmo and Treasure Island will surely be open, but the big players may keep some properties closed. For example, Ceasars Entertainment has said they will start out by opening Flamingo and Caesars Palace while MGM Resorts plans to start with NYNY, Bellagio and MGM Grand.
Las Vegas Reopening June 4 Target Date – Bottom Line
As of now it looks like June 4, 2020 is the most likely date for a reopening of the Las Vegas Strip casinos. We will keep an eye out for Governor Sisolak’s announcement on May 26, 2020 and then will watch as Sin City slowly comes back to life.
