Wynn Resorts CEO Craig Billings has hinted at the upcoming issue of the first-ever casino license in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), in a revolutionary development destined to transform the entertainment industry. The historic news comes as Wynn Resorts prepares to open the much-anticipated Wynn Al Marjan Island, a magnificent casino resort in the Northern Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah.
The splendid Wynn Al Marjan Island, set against the backdrop of Ras Al Khaimah’s pristine beauty, is primed to redefine opulence and leisure. Comprising a harmonious fusion of 1,500 exquisite accommodations, including rooms, sumptuous suites, and captivating villas, the resort promises a lavish retreat for the discerning traveler. Beyond lavish lodgings, the resort boasts an impressive array of attractions, including a tantalizing selection of two dozen dining venues, an indulgent spa sanctuary, a versatile events center, and a theatre that will play host to “unique production shows.”
Taking inspiration from the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas, Wynn Al Marjan Island plans to captivate visitors with nightly laser and light shows, transforming the Emirati nightscape into a mesmerizing tapestry of color and wonder. This captivating spectacle aims to beckon not only longer-term sojourners but also day-trippers from across the UAE’s six other emirates.
Craig Billings addressed the prevailing confusion surrounding gaming laws in the UAE, a nation known for its strict stance against gambling. With Wynn Resorts paving the way for a transformative endeavor, Billings emphasized that the path toward the historic casino license did not necessitate a sweeping nationwide legalization process. Drawing an analogy to the intricate state and federal systems in the United States, he underscored the localized nature of the impending development.
Anticipation is palpable as Wynn Al Marjan Island’s 2027 opening approaches, heralding the UAE’s inaugural confirmed casino. With a strategic allocation of four percent of the resort’s expansive space, the casino promises to provide an elite gaming experience that complements the grandeur of the overall resort.
