The first public announcement was made by the MGM Grand, which announced a scheduled August 30th grand opening of the new casino resort at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas. At that time, the main attraction for the casino, which also has an outlet store, was the new casino poker room, which is set to be the tallest, with the second tallest set to be built around the same time, at the MGM Grand.
The new casino facility at the Sands Expo and Convention Center, which will feature a new casino floor and an additional four gaming tables will be the second largest in the country, according to the MGM Grand’s press release. Another attraction being touted is the new interactive casino video poker area. The new casino video poker area will be located on the second floor, above the main casino floor, according to the release.
According to one official source, the casino reopening date has not been announced yet, but is expected to occur sometime next summer. However, one casino dealer said, “I would think it would be sometime during the summer.”
In July, the Miami Times reported on a new casino-hotel complex being planned by Coral Gables, located near the Brickell-Downtown Miami corridor. The Miami Dolphins are scheduled to move into this hotel, called The Miami Hilton, in late 2020, according to the report. Although the casino-hotel plans were not publicized, some investors have already begun marketing the project. It is not known if a casino reopening will be held at the hotel, or if the Sands Expo and Convention Center will hold the event as well.
An MGM Grand casino reopening has always been seen as a sign of good things to come. The company has made several announcements about its new, expanded Las Vegas casino, including a planned reopening of the hotel property, the expansion of its casino facility, and its upcoming expansion plans. The reopening of the Sands Expo and Convention Center is expected to provide additional competition for the newly re-launched Las Vegas Sands, which was recently purchased by Venetian Las Vegas and is now owned by Macao Corporation, the world’s largest gambling operator.
