Wynn Resorts has announced this week that it is reopening its properties in Las Vegas at 100% capacity.

Around 88% of its Las Vegas employees have already been vaccinated, and they were also given permission by the by the Nevada Gaming Control Board to amend their occupancy and physical distancing requirements.

Teaming up with UMC, the Encore opened a vaccination site on its property in January. As of May, almost all of their employees have been vaccinated.

Wynn employees are required to be vaccinated or take weekly COVID tests. With most of Wynn employees vaccinated, the UMC Vaccination Center at Encore will soon close, on May 14. The clinic shall be moving near UMC's hospital campus, and they say their decision to relocate is to make extra space available for many conventions and meetings that are returning and support the local economy.

Starting May 3, the gaming areas at both Wynn and Encore are cleared to run at 100% occupancy and plexiglass dividers shall be removed from all slot machines and table games.

Of course, Wynn Resorts is requiring all its employees and guests to continue following health and safety guidelines, including the wearing of face masks.

We all need to work and more casinos that have become more hit by the pandemic, now it is opening at 100% of its capacity, that is good news, now always keeping distance and with security protocols to avoid chaos.

I like it when things go back to normal but what a strange thing about vaccination. Such a thing is forbidden by a worldwide law and it can only be done with the consent of the people. Some may refuse and some will say yes. Now it is their life and people will start wasting money in the hope of good or fabulous earnings. The casino will start to go well and i suppose they will be profitable even if the economy is weak than if the past.

I really like that everything goes back to doing as before, I think that little by little we are taking a step further to continue recovering from this, and the casinos are aware of this, and well for them, they need to generate money to pay their workers in general.
 geseco1209/05/2021 05:24:56 GMT
I am very happy for this Wiynn casino, which is one of the oldest, it is impossible that it did not give this example of being able to open with the security measures that were established, poker must continue like other sports.

like they allow people to watch basketball games,they will allow people to go in casino!probably all of this people got vaccine,so they allow them,but its hard to know does all of this workers at casinos wanted to get vaccine or they had to to stay on job!can imagine how much people want to come there,go gamble,to party and everything else that you do in las vegas!
 CALICUL09/05/2021 17:49:04 GMT
Well, here in the casino there are many games, not just poker. Money is earned from slots, blackjack, roulette, hold'em or other games of poker, bingo, dice, etc... if the casino is not open, money is lost and people capable of winning are also upset. Now is good because it returns to normal.
 Cesar1410/05/2021 02:02:01 GMT
That's right, casinos win mostly from slot games, but what matters most to whom is that it is good news to know that they will open correctly, at 100% of their capacity with the security measures as they do. other sports, hopefully all of them continue to open up little by little.
 dule-vu10/05/2021 12:33:22 GMT
most of profit in casinos come from slots machines and table games and thats whole story!ofcourse they dont earn so much poker as on this games and everybody know that!you can imagine how much players can bet on table games,like roulette and black jack and players can lose millions in few hours on this games!
 geseco1210/05/2021 16:27:24 GMT
the gain as many say is in other casino games such as roulette, blackjack, slots, etc., there people lose millions of dollars a year, and they, the casino know that in the long term the machines are going to win because they are programmed for that, now they need to open because people are where they give money.
 Cesar1411/05/2021 13:47:54 GMT
Very well that they have had the opportunity to open the casino to 100%, the economy must return and grow from zero, we cannot fall economically, but always with the security measures to avoid contagion between players and employees, because it would be terrible.
 dule-vu11/05/2021 13:54:01 GMT
if any place on earth,where people can gamble,can back fast players and people in town,that is las vega!so for sure first people will come their and will gamble on slots or other games,because they will know that is secure!but for rest of world,people will wait longer and or people will not come in big numbers!
 CALICUL11/05/2021 18:35:59 GMT
Wynn seems privileged with this reopening of his casino, but now it depends on all the security measures taken by the American authorities. The others probably didn't move so well to finish everything that needed to be done. Anyway, is nice for him.
 geseco1211/05/2021 21:30:52 GMT
Well that indicates that others will have a better chance of being able to open as well, they all need to work and not just a casino, well we will see what happens in the next few days if more casinos will open in the United States.
 Cesar1412/05/2021 20:29:28 GMT
Little by little everything is already looking good, the casinos have to return, I think that for those of us who love video games, this would be the ostia, to be able to enjoy those moments as we did before, in my town there is a casino, and It seems that they will never open it, but I believe that the casinos in the United States are a tremendous need that they open, it is their main income.
 CALICUL13/05/2021 20:14:14 GMT
I'm curious when the casinos will reopen in my country, because i don't know what conditions they will have. I do not want to be vaccinated and an abusive law probably will come where vaccinated people will receive access. I don't think it will be the same in America because there are people there who take action.
 Cesar1414/05/2021 01:18:05 GMT
Vaccines are arriving for people, but in my country it is taking too long and they are only vaccinating those over 80 years old, and for other ages it will take even longer, that is why the casinos in my country will not have, and there are some that have closed, the situation is difficult, and good for the wynn casino that is opening 100%, a hope for others.
 geseco1214/05/2021 03:53:15 GMT
More casinos must be opening, they also need to work, of course the state is seeing that they comply with the health security protocols, that part of many of the casinos does not comply with them, and now it will be mandatory.
 dule-vu14/05/2021 15:14:22 GMT
now some countries open their boards for people who want to travel,but this is still slow and only for people who got vaccine or they had corona in last few months!but still this is not big number of countries and its easier for eu countries!for sure lot of countries will open their boards on summer,because of tourists,but to fly in america is some different story,they have their own rules!
 CALICUL14/05/2021 20:22:47 GMT
the sad situation here is that employees are vaccinated but must also wear a face mask.
I don't know if it's mandatory for customers to be the same, because covid 19 vaccines are optional. Those who are undecided must wait until August 31. The pleasure of playing costs and for that everyone thinks as they wants.
 Cesar1415/05/2021 01:59:17 GMT
The news is good because the casinos will already be back to 100% of their capacity, but the problem here is that not everyone will respect the security protocols, but that should be present in all players so that the virus does not spread and have to close again.
 CALICUL15/05/2021 20:58:29 GMT
it's good for any player which goes to those Las Vegas casinos, and if i could do anything, i would ban masks forever. I don't like how many things were destroyed because of a lie, which is named Covid 19. Incredible how humanity has a spirit of herd. Now, i hope it returns to normal all over the world.
 geseco1216/05/2021 05:04:03 GMT
The situation is difficult now, but with faith we can return to tranquility, we all need to open our businesses that are the sustenance, now this casino is already open and many more will join.
 dule-vu16/05/2021 17:50:26 GMT
foru sure everything will be open first for people that got vaccine and who had corona in last months and they will allow to this people to go on concerts,to go in casino,restaurant and other things!on this way that want to make people to take vaccine and that everything is over soon,but ofcourse lot of people will not to that!
for this thing in las vegas,at least you will know that all workers will have it and that you dont have to worry about them and contact with them!
 CALICUL16/05/2021 21:41:52 GMT
what will happen to players who do not want to be vaccinated? will they be allowed to play, or will be banned from participating in casino and his games? Many owners will lose money, if they do not think rationally and will refuse to accept them inside.
 CALICUL01/09/2021 19:41:38 GMT
from my point of view, this protocol service and the rest of things must not be respected. People play and if they are not left inside, that casino loses and goes bankrupt. These conditions are not good because i do not agree with these methods against a virus that is not dangerous.
