The STRAT Hotel, Casino and SkyPod has unveiled the new Link Slot Lounge, a partnership with Aristocrat Technologies, along with the first phase of a casino remodel. Both are located on the main floor near the new BLVD & MAIN Taphouse and View Lounge.
Named for Aristocrat’s popular Link series, the Link Slot Lounge showcases 44 games from Aristocrat’s most entertaining and successful titles, including Buffalo Grand, Buffalo Diamond, Tarzan, Wonder 4 Spinning Fortunes, Buffalo Golden 7s, Gold Stacks 88 games, Liberty Link, Lighting Link and Dragon Link games. The 2,346-square-foot lounge is modern in design and feel, with triangular mirrors suspended from the ceiling and lush, contemporary seating.
“Aristocrat’s Link series captures the excitement of the slot machine experience unlike any other game that is out there,” said Chris Fiumara, vice president and general manager of The STRAT. “The Link Slot Lounge takes that excitement to the next level and we’re thrilled to offer this inventive slot experience to our guests.”
“Less than a month ago, we were celebrating with The STRAT when one of their players won nearly $2 million on our Buffalo Grand game. Now we are standing alongside our partners again, this time as they open this extraordinary Link Lounge,” said Aristocrat Americas President Hector Fernandez. “We are thrilled how players have responded to our entertaining Lightning Link and Dragon Link games, and we are honored to be partners with The STRAT, where we hope lightning will strike and dragons will roar for many years. The STRAT has been very thoughtful in their reinvestments, and we are excited to be a part of the new STRAT.”
The first phase of the casino floor remodel spans 10,371 square feet with 236 machines and reveals The STRAT’s new design and branding, inspired by the sky, sun, stars and moon with tones of blue and amber; the signature color the same sky blue that is used in the property’s new logo. The ceiling design is accentuated by an elegant box-like light filled extrusions for dimensionality within the ceiling elements.
The entire 80,000-square-foot casino, encompassing 750 machines and 44 tables, will be fully remodeled by the end of 2019. Other new features include new directional signage, new video walls at check-in and behind the box office, and more.
In addition to the gaming areas, the main floor has recently introduced a new Welcome to Las Vegas Gift Shop by Marshall Retail Group. An intimate casino lounge is now under construction with an opening planned for fall.
