LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The latest evolution of gaming and entertainment is set to debut with the opening of Re:Match at The LINQ Hotel + Experience.

Enhancing the traditional casino lounge and bar experience, Re:Match features an indoor/outdoor setting on the famed Las Vegas Strip and is designed for guests to engage and interact with the environment.

With 27 touch screens that create a cohesive underwater world, Re:Match is a first-of-its-kind interactive experience.

Additional features of Re:Match include:

VIRTUAL SEA LIFE: A virtual world of underwater sea life including; sea turtles, stingrays, an octopus, a variety of fish and more can be discovered while exploring the virtual ocean display. Tap the bar top screen if you dare and encounter an overzealous shark, find the lost city of Atlantis or pose for a selfie with a camera-friendly dolphin. Be sure to open an oyster if you see one – they may contain secrets about the bar or challenge you to social media worthy moments. Your bartender is in on the fun too!

GAME MODE: Periodically, one of three games will appear at the Re:Match bar screens to challenge those seated around it to a fun competition. Save the Las Vegas Strip from an alien invasion, catch falling money from FLYLINQ riders or capture the most chicken wings in the “Sticky Chicken For President” game. One lucky participant will win a free drink for competing each time a game is played.

Re:Match is another step in a resort-wide transformation that began with the opening of The Book last fall.
