Rio is set to reopen in the month of December.

Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada

On December 22, 2020, it was revealed by Caesars Entertainment that the reopening of Rio is imminent. Come March, guests can expect not only the opening of the casino but also the hotel and a selection of amenities. Rio is eagerly anticipating the return of its valued visitors, who will be greeted with open arms.

Rio temporarily shut down in response to Governor Sisolak's orders, which forced the closure of the gaming industry in the state. Unlike other Caesars Entertainment properties in Las Vegas, Rio has yet to resume operations.

Cromwell made history as the final Las Vegas Strip casino to reopen, graciously hosting its first guests on October 29.

Starting December 22nd, the casino and hotel are set to reopen their doors, welcoming guests for a revitalizing stay. From that date until January 3rd, 2021, accommodations will be available every day of the week, allowing visitors to enjoy a memorable experience throughout the holiday season. However, beginning January 4th, a slight change will take place, with the hotel operating exclusively on Thursday through Sunday nights. During the weekdays, the casino floor will remain accessible, along with selected amenities, ensuring that patrons can still indulge in a range of entertainment options.

At Planet Hollywood, they adhere to the same policy. However, at Encore, Palazzo, and Park MGM, they take it a step further by closing their hotel rooms on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights. In fact, during this time, the entire casino floor at Encore is also shut down. On the other hand, Palazzo and Park MGM keep their casino floors and other amenities open throughout the weekdays. It's interesting to see how different establishments handle their operations during specific days of the week.

Rio's grand reopening will see the revival of numerous amenities, such as the addition of the state-of-the-art William Hill sportsbook and the keno lounge that accompanies it.

The casinos in Las Vegas remain shuttered, unable to open their doors.

Boyd Gaming and Station Casinos are currently the only companies in the Las Vegas market that have not yet reopened their closed casinos. The announcement from Rio has brought attention to this fact. Boyd Gaming's closed properties include Eastside Cannery, Eldorado, and Main Street Station. On the other hand, Station Casinos has several closed properties, namely Fiesta Henderson, Fiesta Rancho, Palms, and Texas Station. These establishments have yet to announce a reopening date, leaving them as the only remaining closed casinos in Las Vegas.

There are currently two unincorporated Clark County casinos in the south of Las Vegas that have yet to reopen. Buffalo Bill's, located in Primm, is closed with no set reopening date. Terrible's in Jean, previously known as Goldstrike, also remains closed indefinitely.
