Casino giant Wynn to open resort with gaming zone in UAE
Hotel and casino operator Wynn Resorts will construct a luxury resort in Ras Al Khaimah in the UAE with a “gaming area”.
Wynn didn’t specify if gaming included gambling but in a sign that entertainment rules might be loosened, the Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority (Raktda) said it created a new Department of Entertainment and Gaming Regulation to regulate “integrated resorts”.
Integrated resorts typically refer to hotels with casinos and other entertainment facilities. The new luxury resort will have 1000 rooms, 10 restaurants and lounges and a spa coupled with the “gaming area”
The Wynn resort is set for completion in 2026 and will be located on Al Marjan, the man-made island off the coast of Ras Al Khaimah.
