Las Vegas, NV (KXNT) - The first new property on the Las Vegas Strip in more than a decade opened its doors to the public Thursday night.

Resorts World Las Vegas kicked off their grand opening celebration with a ribbon cutting, a VIP reception and fireworks before the general public began to be let in at 11pm.

Not only is Resorts World the newest property on the Strip, but it's also the most technologically advanced. Even the chips have chips.

Everything can be cashless and wireless at Resorts World. Casino operations chief Rick Hutchins says players will be using chips implanted with sensors at tables hard-wired for cashless transactions.

Three Hilton brands comprise Resorts World Las Vegas: Hilton, its upscale Conrad brand, and its 'ultra-luxury' Crockfords offering. In all, the resort has 3,500 hotel rooms, with each brand having its own entrance and check-in.

The main floor is dominated by a 117,000 Square foot casino with 1,400 slots, and 130 table games.

Hungry? The biggest problem you might face is picking a place to eat, with Resorts World offering 40 restaurants in which to choose. This week, a partnership with food delivery service Grubhub was unveiled, with the food delivery service delivering food orders throughout the property through an app.

Resorts World cost $4.3 billion and is the first new Strip property to open since the Cosmopolitan in December of 2010.
