Caesar Entertainment’s Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino, based in Las Vegas, will reopen and resume operations on December 22, just a few days before Christmas. This is the operator’s final property in the US and Canada to reopen after it was forced to shut down due to the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
Weekend stays will be allowed from Thursday to Monday, while the hotel’s gaming floor will operate for seven days a week. The opening will also include the return of the comedy-magic duo Penn and Teller.
The keno lounge, table games and slot machines will also be resuming operations, and Caesars will take the opportunity of reopening to launch its newly rebranded William Hill race and sports book.
“As the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino prepares to resume operations on December 22, this marks the final Caesars Entertainment resort to reopen in the US and Canada,” Anthony Carano, president and chief operating officer of Caesars Entertainment, said.
“The past nine months have been filled with challenges, as well as opportunities including the merging of our two gaming companies to form the new Caesars Entertainment,” Carano explained. “We recognize the incredible effort it has taken to reopen our resorts and get us to this important milestone, and we look forward to welcoming our team members and guests back to Rio with their health and safety still top of mind,” he added.
