Red Rock has been a staple for locals and visitors alike. Over the past month, they have seen a drastic increase. They say it’s been better than ever and it’s nice to have that trust between them and the guest.

Red Rock Vice President of Guest Experience Joe Yalda tells us, "Our pool has been jamming more than it’s ever been so we highly recommend getting some cabana reservations and check that out. Our theaters are back open with full capacity. Our restaurant are at 100% capacity. We even added Side Piece, our new pizza place over in our food court. If you haven’t tried that, I highly recommend that. Our hotel is doing better than ever."

South Point Hotel and Casino says the best part of opening back up is to see the faces of their guests and employees again. They stress they are still taking safety precautions but are happy visitors can experience what they'd expect when coming to South Point.

One thing South Point is well known for is sports bets.

Oddsmaker for South Point Jimmy Vaccaro says: "You can’t stop sports wagering. You can’t stop people from getting involved. It really ignites the people. It’s almost like seeing your neighbors again that you haven’t seen in quite a while."

The general manager for South Point Ryan Growney told us: "The casino has actually been at 100 percent capacity for a few weeks so not much has changed there but we have a 4,600 seat arena, two separate bowling centers and our showrooms are back online. We had the 'Righteous Brothers' here last weekend. We had four sold-out shows. We hadn’t had a show in that room for a year. You have to have all of those components to have the Vegas experience."
