Las Vegas Opens First Casino In 2 Years On $780 Million Property

  • For the first time in two years, a new casino has opened in Las Vegas, but it may not be where you’d expect.
  • The Venetian, Caesars Palace and the Bellagio are just a few of the many resorts that line the Las Vegas Strip.
  • Durango Casino & Resort, the newest addition to Sin City, won’t be joining them. Durango is located several miles away. Its location makes it more of a hot spot for locals rather than tourists visiting the city. It is the first casino to open in Las Vegas since Resorts World, a $4.3 billion project that opened on the strip in 2021.
