Casino openings excite us because we long to enjoy something we’ve never seen before. For many, the openings of The Mirage (the arrival of the Strip megaresort era), Luxor (a unique idea and design), the Stratosphere (are you kidding … a 1,000-foot tower?) and Bellagio (what will Steve Wynn think of next?) have been highlights across the years.
