LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The most-anticipated opening on the Las Vegas Strip is finally happening today.

Resorts World Las Vegas will open its doors to the public at 11 p.m.

The massive video display on the outside of the property is 100,000 square feet and has more than 3,000 individual LED panels that can project content like commercials and live broadcasts.

But the tech goes beyond that display.

The hotel-casino is also offering a check-in app and mobile key experience.

Additionally, the property teamed up with GrubHub to make sure that its guests have access to food and other items at their convenience inside of the resort.

The new hotel-casino has also provided thousands of jobs in construction over the past few years and is providing thousands more now with its opening.

The resort said it was looking to fill 6,000 positions before its opening.

And, its opening is also benefiting other businesses in the area like El Dorado Cantina.

The options are endless, including Latin, Italian, Mediterranean and more.

And the way some restaurants were brought to the property is pretty interesting.

Dedet de la Fuente is called the Lechon Diva of Pepita’s Kitchen. She is known around the world for her lechon — a Filipino-style roasted pig.

Years ago, she was invited to Singapore to represent the lechon at a world street food event and it was a hit.

Fast forward and someone remembered that pig and invited her to be part of Resorts World.

De La Fuentes says that lechon is a party food and she wants people to think of a celebration when they taste it.

We also talked to Peter Carrillo, who is the COO of Nori Bar, He is also the creator of Teka Bar, which is at the Cosmopolitan. He says that when he got the opportunity to work with Resorts World, he decided to incorporate some part of the Teka Bar into the bar at Resorts World.

Senior Vice President Max Tappeiner says the resort is very proud of the superstars they were able to secure, including Celine Dion, Luke Bryant, Carrie Underwood, Miley Cyrus, Zedd and Tiesto.

The headliners will be performing in a 5,000 seat theater, which is scheduled to open later this year.

Zedd and Tiesto will appear at Zouk Nightclub and Ayu Dayclub.

Resorts World and Gemini want to implement crypto-friendly services across the property. More details about their partnership is expected to be released in the upcoming weeks.

You open the Resorts World app and select cashless. Next, you select what you want to play at the table and select what you want to buy in for. Once that's done, you will get a QR code that goes to the dealer. The app will then debit your wagering account, log you into the game, and the table takes over.
