    The resort is expected to open on December 3, 2016.

    For a $299 room, taxes were $35.88.

    Note that's just taxes though. Looks like resort fees are not being charged currently.

    My 2 chips worth. I have done a few Christmas day trips and found that much if not most of the clientele to be of Asian origin. I never gawked long enough to to get a solid chip count but it wasn't unusual to see tens of thousands being played per player.

    I can see where the Lucky Dragon concept (all asian-all the time?) could be the place to be for these and other gamblers.

    That has been what they have said from the start, geared towards the Asian money and they never said small time money.:haha:

    it's neighbors are the Stratosphere and Palace Station. not exactly high-roller territory. its the budget crowd. they will need all types to fill the rooms. when will they learn?

    They only have 203 rooms to fill, while SLS has 1720 (more than I expected for SLS). Big difference there. If they can give a high class immersive experience then the rich Asian patrons they are hoping for won't have to leave the property and see the rundown that surrounds it.

    Can they pull that off. I have no idea. Wouldn't get my hopes up though.

    Hot rumor going around is that the place will open, quietly, tomorrow.

    I'll be in Vegas next week, and am getting unreasonably excited about this.

    Yayyy...I will definitely check the place out. Sounds like it's opening this Saturday at 4pm, just in time for my arrival on Sunday.

    I won't stay there but did consider it at those rates with no resort fees. Will try a restaurant or two and probably check out SLS at the same time.

    Article in LV Sun has LVA's Anthony Curtis saying there's approximately 40 table games, with many being baccarat, only four blackjack, and no craps tables as of yet.

    Whatever the Asian clientele they are aiming at is the type of games they will have more of I would think.

    Stopped by this morning. Staff was nice and the casino was very nice. Not my cup of tea but I think they'll fit a certain niche.

    :peace: :beer:
