LAS VEGAS - Gaming experts say the developments of SLS Las Vegas and Resorts World Las Vegas could spark a domino effect on north Strip development.
The $350 million purchase of the Echelon site by Genting Group will change business on the north end of Las Vegas Boulevard. Genting Group's planned Resorts World Las Vegas will include an Asian-themed hotel/casino. It's expected to bring more international tourists to Las Vegas.
This is good news which could spark changes to nearby casinos.
Circus Circus is one of the older properties near Las Vegas Boulevard and Convention Center Drive, but its family friendly niche has helped the casino stay in the black. Gaming experts say they do not expect changes to that property.
