Casinos in Many parts of the US started opening doors to eager patrons. Clients are returning to their old gambling habits, as shown by the long lines of people waiting outside casino doors in Las Vegas.

Casino reopening was delayed as protests flooded the streets over the death of a black man from a cop’s hands.

Las Vegas casinos started accepting guests on Thursday. Cars and people lined up outside the casinos waiting for the chance to enter the gambling facilities. The casinos resumed operations despite the continuous threat of the novel coronavirus. The state is in crossroads between the health of the people and a struggling economy.

The reopening of the casinos might provide an alternative source of revenue for the state whose economy was struck hard by the lockdowns imposed to protect everyone. Casino operators decided to resume operations to recover from the losses they accumulated during the lockdowns.

Las Vegas casinos opened doors to patrons

At 12:01 a.m., Hotel-casinos in the suburbs of Las Vegas opened their doors. They were followed by the reopening of several resorts and casinos in the Las Vegas Strip.

Wynn Resorts delayed its reopening because violent protests took place over the death of George Floyd in Minnesota. The death of the black man from the hands of a white cop urged people to march in the street, calling support against racial discrimination.

The death of Floyd went viral on the internet, gaining sympathy all around the world. The video of his death showed the cop arresting Floyd, pinning him down with his knee on his throat. People were seen asking the police to release the man, but the cop did not stop until Floyd turned unconscious. He was later pronounced dead in a hospital. After the protests, Wynn Resorts opened the doors at nighttime.

Fairs, hotel accommodations became cheaper

Because of the prolonged lockdowns, transportation in the states turned cheaper. A roundtrip by plane from the Bay Area to Las Vegas on Allegiant Air is only $100. You can also reach Las Vegas from San Francisco in less than $200.

Fares from other places also went down. Spirit, Frontier, or Allegiant offers $51 for a roundtrip from the Bay Area to Las Vegas.

Google Flights said that Alaska Air and United offer $115 for a roundtrip. Other airlines also followed the schemes.

The hotel also cut accommodation prices. Guests can stay in big-time 5-star hotels, like Wynn, Bellagio, and the Venetian, for $200 per night. The payment includes resort fees. The 4-star hotel prices are at $100 per night or less.

Casinos in Nevada shut down operations following the orders of Governor Steve Sisolak. The Governor ordered nonessential businesses to shut down and prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus pandemic.

The public criticized the Governor for ordering the shutdowns. He was balancing health concerns and the billions of dollars of lost revenue because of the prolonged lockdowns. The unemployment of the state rose to 28 percent in April because of the closures.
