    I guess this is the reason I don't get shit from this company here in NY. Their target customer is Asian/Chinese.

    amazing they think they will build the resort and the people will come? good luck with that. too far north up the strip if you ask me.

    Genting has casinos throughout the world, including in Asia if memory serves. They'll be able to attract an Asian clientele at the Las Vegas location once it is operational

    I have no doubt they will attract their targeted audience, will it be enough? this isn't NYC where they also target the Asian community, bigtime, but theres zero competition here, and last week when I was up in their new casino, I went to the back to the "Asian" section, and there weren't more than 10 people back there.(the casino that posted 58 million dollar loss?)

    vegas is vegas, competition is brutal, and this casinos location might not attract anyone else....that's all Im sayin.

    they have money to burn, no question, but do they need another casino that doesn't live up to expectations?

    wasn't there another casino opened past couple years aiming at that same target audience and it failed quickly?

    I wish them the best of luck but they'll need something revolutionary to make a go of it on that far North on the strip.

    Random noted they have a presence in Asia. Perhaps they can attract a lot of clientele from Asia on junket style packages.

    Too bad they wouldn't extend the monorail to the airport. That has potential to help the North end of the strip.

    Yes. Lucky Dragon. It closed up. In fact I don't even know if the hotel is still open. It was supposed to go to auction...but I don't remember hearing if it sold. One of the quickest open and closes I can remember.

    Derek Stevens took a look but I think he hated the location....

    Jim Murren said no more themes to Monte Carlo, the Orient, Italy or whatever. I'm wondering the same thing about this resort. Keep it neutral and cater to all.

    Park MGM. National Harbor. Springfield. All will have their own identity not linked to a particular theme or group or locale. I think it's probably a good idea.

    genting can hedge their bet

    they know they are going to be the first full casino in NYC limits, and I will predict, you read it here first, when the moron governor finally allows them a full license, it will gross more money, and make more profit than any casino on this planet, and it isn't the largest casino.
    and if genting was smart, they would start looking for land in flushing NY, right now, pay the fortune,
    I remember 10-15 years ago, it was a so so neighborhood, then the Chinese and Koreans got interested bought up all the real estate, including every business, and now, its one of the most toughest places to get a condo or apartment or home.
    if they stuck a casino in that area, they will have to hire security to keep people OUT as there is no way they can build one large enough to accommodate the population over there.

    I believe honestly that NYC, the 5 boroughs, and Long Island can support 10-15 casinos and keep them in profits longer than any other area.

    I have no love for genting corp, they don't give shit as far as cardholder programs. Its not only me, we know many, many people who are slot players, my wifes friends, neighbors, a lot of them go up to empire because they get 5 times as many freebies, comps, free play, as genting gives here at the big A.(empire is a 45 minute ride from around here)
    I rarely go to aqueduct anymore, or at least recently, they don't give me anything, they don't seem to care about customer loyalty, so Ill play when I travel. (and once in a while if I need a fix, ok, Ill go slide 300 in there)

    Some years back a mobile phone store in town -- one of the bigger names but I don't remember which -- had a "Grand Opening" sign in the window and a "For Sale" sign out front from a commercial real estate agency.

    Lucky Dragon was primarily built for immigration purposes. As such, it lacked the backing of major financial investors. It also lacked the tie in to an established player rewards program. Genting's Las Vegas location won't have either issue. The slightly off strip location certainly didn't help Lucky Dragon. By the time Resorts World Las Vegas is completed, things on the north end of the Strip should be improved. We'll see.

    Seen and read some stories that the unfinished Fontainbleau Resort/Casino project is being revived. This is across the street from Resorts World.

    That would be a big boost to the North Strip as that monstrosity is enormous.

    That shell of a structure has been siting idle, exposed to the elements for over 10 years. Icahn might have had the best idea, demolish it and sell off the steel.
