I'd like to draw attention to the thread RESORTS WORLD VIP OPENING JUNE 24, 2021. I am not trying to make another thread on the same topic. Let's discuss the grand opening party there and general comments about Resorts World here. I will be putting an emphasis on the game rules.

For now, here are some pictures. Give me a day or two to compile to notes on the odds. Generally speaking, they are on the stingy side, which I would expect of a high-end Strip properly.


This is a big illuminated sphere in the shopping area.


Where is that license plate from?


Trivia time! Phoenix is the only state capital to have an X?


Table game area


There is a collection of Rolls Royces in the corredor (why doesn't my computer like that spelling?) between the parking garage and casino. This is just one of them.


Is Katy Perry related to Steve Perry?

Here is my first installment of game odds information. This is on a randomly selected video poker machine on the main floor. There are very few video poker machines to be found. In fact, I found only four, but I don't claim to have seen every machine. Of those four, two were specialty games. One was Split Card and I forgot the other.

Here are the games available for the $0.25, $0.50 and $1 denomination. The average return is 96.43% and the maximum 96.87%.

Game Pay Table Return
Bonus Poker 6-5 96.87%
Bonus Poker Deluxe 7-5 96.25%
Deuces Wild Bonus Poker 12-4-3-2 96.22%
Deuces Wild 16-13 96.77%
Double Bonus 9-6-4 96.38%
Double Double Bonus 8-5 96.79%
Jacks or Better 7-5 96.15%
Triple Double Bonus 8-5 95.97%
Triple Triple Bonus 7-5 96.49%



Here are the games available for the $2, $5, $10, $25, and $50 denomination. The average return is 97.41% and the maximum 97.87%.

Game Pay Table Return
Bonus Poker 35,6,5 97.36%
Bonus Poker Deluxe 8-5 97.40%
Deuces Wild Bonus Poker 10-4-3-3 97.36%
Deuces Wild 20-12-9-4 97.06%
Double Bonus 9-6-5 97.81%
Double Double Bonus 9-5 97.87%
Jacks or Better 8-5 97.30%
Triple Double Bonus 9-5 97.02%
Triple Triple Bonus 8-5 97.55%


I have no idea of the value of points. There was an enormous line to apply for a player card.

There was a story here on the morning news about new technology that they are utilizing for a cashless casino experience. It seems you can use a phone app to buy in at slot machines and table games. I would be interested to learn more about this. The claim was that this technology is a response to Covid, I guess maybe safer than handling money. Seems like it could be more convenient than the current marker system. Maybe it is also too convenient, could induce people to gamble more than anticipated? Is the system optional or mandatory? Is anybody else doing anything like this?

The saga that started off as the Echelon project in 2007 and turned into Resorts World Vegas in 2013 has finally come to an end.
RIP Stardust. :(

Now the New Frontier casino next door was also demolished in 2007 but still sits empty.
After many twists and turns, it is currently owned by Wynn for a fraction of the cost. (His Encore casino is across the street.)
No cool name for this project though.

Because it's spelled "corridor" - apparently, "corredor" is Spanish for "runner."

The minimum on all table games are high. I think the lowest it got in craps is $15. There is a little craps table in the high limit room. I've never seen that before. I didn't check the limits, but probably $100+. Not that you asked, but they do have 3-4-5x odds, liberal Field, and 15-30 "to one" hops.
