The Nevada Gaming Commission on Thursday unanimously approved licensing for Genting Berhad PTC, the parent company of Resorts World Las Vegas, and its top officers.
The approval sets the stage for the June 24 opening of the company’s $4.3 billion, 3,506-room resort, the first from-the-ground-up Strip resort to open in more than a decade.
Commissioners questioned Genting Chairman Kok Thay (KT) Lim in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia — where it was around 4 a.m., Friday — in a virtual hearing and Resorts World Las Vegas President Scott Sibella in Las Vegas.
