Caesars Entertainment reopens several Las Vegas Strip properties

4 June 2020

(PRESS RELEASE) -- In accordance with directives from Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak and the Nevada Gaming Control Board, Caesars Entertainment Corporation has resumed gaming and hospitality operations in Las Vegas at its Caesars Palace and Flamingo Las Vegas properties today, 4 June. Additionally, the Company has reopened selected retail and dining outlets along The LINQ Promenade, as well as the High Roller Observation Wheel. On Friday, 5 June at 11 a.m. Pacific Time, Harrah's Las Vegas Casino & Hotel will also resume operations.

Caesars Palace marked the reopening of its main lobby doors to the public with a special moment on the Roman Plaza featuring Caesars Entertainment headliner Wayne Newton, Caesar and Cleopatra of the resort's Royal Court, and Caesars Entertainment CEO Tony Rodio. Newton was the first to welcome guests and introduced Rodio. Rodio reminisced about all the rich memories in Caesars Palace's 54-year history—from the world-famous boxing matches to iconic entertainment including Newton's show at Cleopatra's Barge, and more. In that time, the resort had never closed its doors up until March 17, 2020, and Rodio did acknowledge the country's continued challenging circumstances. However, he enthusiastically closed by inviting guests to "get the next 50 years rolling." Additionally, first casino guest Ben Laparne ceremoniously rolled the first dice at a craps table with Newton and Rodio cheering him on inside Caesars Palace.

Flamingo Las Vegas welcomed back guests in true Flamingo fashion, with two statuesque showgirls in the historic orange and pink Bob Mackie finale costumes from the former "Jubilee" show, with the new addition of bedazzled face masks.

The Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas will also display a new light show in honor of the reopening of the Strip from Thursday, June 4 through Saturday, June 6, every half hour from dusk to midnight.

The casino resorts offer lodging, a variety of food and beverage amenities, access to their outdoor pools, as well as slot machines and table games on the casino floors. The Company intends to comply with all reopening and operating directives from Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak, the Nevada Gaming Control Board, and public health authorities.
