Virgin Las Vegas Delays Opening Over Coronavirus

The first Native American casino in Sin City will have to wait a bit longer as Virgin Las Vegas has announced they will delay their opening. Although Virgin owns the hotel, their casino will be run by Mohegan Gaming.

Virgin issued a statement on the delay via their CEO of JC Hospitality, Richard Bosworth:

“Due to the continuously evolving COVID-19 situation not only in Nevada, but nationwide we have made the decision to delay the Jan. 15, 2021 opening of Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. The construction for the project is on time and this decision was predicated on the current conditions in the market as it pertains to the pandemic.

We encourage everyone to follow the guidelines put forth by public officials. At this time, an opening date has not been finalized, but an announcement is forthcoming.”
