The Nevada Gaming Commission approved Hard Rock’s acquisition of The Mirage Hotel and Casino from MGM Resorts International. Thus, Hard Rock gained operational control of the casino hotel on December 19.
According to SportsBettingSolutionAsia.com sources, operating assets were purchased by HRI for $1.075 billion in cash. In addition, VICI Properties Inc. signed a long-term leasing agreement for The Mirage property.
Until the renovations and rebranding to Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas are finished, the casino resort will continue to operate as The Mirage Hotel & Casino. Although it will take quite some time, the Guitar-shaped hotel tower will transform the resort and alter the city’s skyline.
Acquisition of The Mirage Hotel and Casino
All existing hotel and group reservations will be honored without any further action being required from guests or organizers throughout the next few months while normal operations at the famous Las Vegas resort continue under The Mirage name. From now until 2023, guests of The Mirage may enjoy a variety of world-class culinary and entertainment options. At this time, Hard Rock doesn’t have any plans to shut down The Mirage. In addition, it wouldn’t lay off any of its employees.
According to bookie PPH reports, casino patrons may now take advantage of the Hard Rock’s Unity system. It is a worldwide loyalty program that allows members to earn and redeem benefits at any of the many Hard Rock hotels, cafés, and casinos.
After 2020, HRI will no longer have any operational ties to the former Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. In May 2020, HRI purchased the license and naming rights to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas, and they have stated that they will bring the famous brand to the Strip once it is correct.
In late 2023, Hard Rock plans to announce the redesigned resort’s new amenities, attractions, and construction timeline. Also, they already know how to become a bookie, which is an advantage over competitors.
