LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Resorts World Las Vegas will open its doors to the public at 11 p.m. on June 24.

The hotel-casino is the first resort to be built from the ground up on the Las Vegas Strip in several years.

Genting Group, which is based in Malaysia, bought the land for Resorts World in 2013. They announced plans for an Asian-themed resort, complete with a panda enclosure and a shopping village that would resemble a Chinese village.
