KUALA LUMPUR -- Malaysia-based casino operator Genting Group on Thursday is set to open its $4.3 billion resort in global gambling mecca Las Vegas as the U.S. gets moving again after a mass inoculation campaign reduced coronavirus infections.

Resorts World Las Vegas is an integrated facility covering nearly 88 acres at the north end of the Las Vegas Strip and the first mega-resort to open there in more than a decade. Hopes are high that the project will provide a welcome boost to the desert city's entertainment-based economy hit hard by a plunge in visitor arrivals due to the spread of COVID-19.
