Palms Casino Report Las Vegas Open Again After 2 Years
The Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas had lain dormant for two years, but now with pandemic fears abating, the venue has returned to welcoming patrons again. The property re-opened to the public on April 27, 2022.
The Palms General Manager, Cynthia Kiser Murphey commented,
"Las Vegas is known to be such an amazing, iconic destination. And I think as the Palms, we have a responsibility to continue to make Las Vegas so special. We're super-excited."
The San Manuel Band of Mission Indians-run San Manuel Gaming and Hospitality Authority is the new owner of the casino after purchasing it from Red Rock Resorts for the tidy sum of $650 million in December 2021.
The Palms is now the first Las Vegas property to be owned and operated by a Native American tribe and its recent $600 million makeover shows that they mean business. Most of the property's decor has been preserved except for a few upgrades and enhancements.
Kiser Murphey shared that the property intends to draw a blend of locals and tourists, particularly the crowds from Southern California who regularly visit the Yaamava resort.
"We're working hard to make the gaming floor very attractive to locals," Kiser Murphey said. "The movies are really important to locals, the restaurants, the bars. And then when we roll out the entertainment a few months down the road, we will definitely have locals," she concluded.
The San Manual Band of Mission Indians is the second aboriginal group to take over a Las Vegas casino. The Mohegan Tribe in Connecticut had the honor of being the first when it completed the Mohegan Sun Casino at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas.
