To take the advantage over others the Lucky Dragon Hotel & Casino is looking to open its first Asian themed resort, which is funded by Chinese investors and is set to open on December 3, 2016.
The casino will open on December 3 with a traditional lion dance and it is specific to Chinese visitors. The casino has a plan to bring Hong Kong and Taiwan based pop stars for performance on opening day on Lunar New Year festivities.
The casino will feature a special tea bar, restaurants and food for its Chinese customers and that would not look different than their own place i.e. shanghai.

Adding to this Bill Weidner, the chief operating officer and former president of Las Vegas Sands Corporation said that you would think that the resort is anywhere in Beijing or the idea behind making this relates from that place, but I would like to say that we have used American veteran gaming executives and their reviews to make the 203-room boutique resort a great place for Chinese gamblers.
Weidner, an advisor to Lucky Dragon was also involved with development of $5.5-billion Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.
Mr. Jacoby said that the pool of Chinese gamers will certainly grow on opening day of the hotel and casino resort and direct flights of Hainan Airlines from china to Vegas are confirmed.
