More than a few of the top casino resorts in Las Vegas have been undergoing a facelift in recent years. Each one has made a concerted effort to carve out a unique place in the casino gambling capital of the world. To achieve this goal, millions of dollars have been invested in these renovation projects. Now, let’s see how the new link slot lounge will make it’s debut at the Stratosphere Las Vegas.
The STRAT is moving forward with Phase 1 of its major upgrade. Formally known as Stratosphere Las Vegas, you can find this property just north of the famous Las Vegas Strip. The first noticeable change was the decision to rename the resort The STRAT for a more contemporary feel. Many of the other renovation projects in town are trying to recreate an old-school Vegas feel. This casino is moving in the other direction in its rebranding efforts.
What Is The The New Link Slot Lounge At The Stratosphere Las Vegas?
One of the biggest features in Phase 1 of the project is the debut of Link Slot Lounge. In a press release on July 31, The STRAT Hotel, Casino and SkyPod unveiled the brand new Link Slot Lounge. This is a joint collaboration with Aristocrat Technologies as a leading gaming development corporation. Indeed, you can find the main casino floor near the new BLVD & MAIN Taphouse and View Lounge.
The slot lounge was named after Aristocrat’s highly popular Link series of slot games. It will feature 44 games from the company’s most successful titles including:
44 Slot Games From Aristocrat’s Popular Link Series Of Slots
- Buffalo Grand, Buffalo Diamond & Buffalo Golden 7’s
- Wonder 4 Spinning Fortunes & Gold Stacks 88
- Liberty Link, Lightning Link & Dragon Link
This is just a small sampling of games that have been entertaining players over the past several years. The Link Slot Lounge offers 2,346 square feet of gambling action. It is modern in design with a very contemporary feel. Triangular mirrors hand from the ceiling and the seating is both casual and lush. Chris Fiumara is the vice president and general manager of The Strat. He was quoted in the release as follows:
Taking Excitement To The Next Level
“Aristocrat’s Link series captures the excitement of the slot machine experience, unlike any other game that is out there. The Link Slot Lounge takes that excitement to the next level, and we’re thrilled to offer this inventive slot experience to our guests.” Aristocrat Americas president is Hector Fernandez, and he added:
“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. He also went on to say:
“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 yeers. The STRAT has been very thoughtful in their reinvestments and we are excited to be part of the new STRAT.”
The entire 80,000 square-foot casino floor at The STRAT offers 750 gaming machines and 44 gaming tables. The overall remodeling project is expected to be finished by the end of the year.
