Main Street Station casino on Las Vegas Strip is finally unveiling plans to reopen 500 days after closing its property in downtown Las Vegas. Main Street revealed on its page posting that the casino and the hotel would begin welcoming guests on 8th September.
“We are excitedly preparing for the reopening of our property and your return.”
Boyd Gaming shut down Main Street Station on 17th March 2020 after Nevada Governor ordered casinos in Nevada to suspend operations for 30 days. The casino closure was extended for more than two months. But gambling eventually resumed on 4th June 2020.
Boyd Gaming owns Main Street Station casino, among other Strip properties. They include Sam’s Town, California Hotel and Casino, Fremont Hotel and Casino, and The Orleans and Gold Coast. However, Boyd relies more on visitors out of town than the rest of the gaming properties in Las Vegas.
California Hotel and Casino is one of Boyd’s renowned properties. The property features 800 guestrooms and 85, 000 square feet of casino space. Due to pandemic travel restrictions, California Casino remained shuttered, and Boyd decided to Keep Main Street closed as it would not be fully occupied.
Since 8th July, Nevada stopped requiring a 14-day mandatory quarantine for visitors from Hawaii as long as they have proof of vaccination. Main Street is reopening with the hope that traffic from Hawaii will continue to increase.
