Resorts World Las Vegas Free Parking Changes Imminent

Luxury Las Vegas casino resort Resorts World will soon be ending its policy of offering free parking for any loyalty club member. 

From June 1, only “Elite” tier or above Resorts World loyalty members will get free parking. Elite is the second tier, above “Royal” but below “Prime,” “Monarch,” and “Imperial.”

However, beginning June 3, any Nevada resident will get three hours of free parking. If you’re a visiting “Royal” member, or just a new signup at that level, you’ll now have to pay $18 for parking at Resorts World. 

Valet parking will be available free to “Prime” or above members, with everyone else paying $25 to $75, depending on how busy it is upon arrival.

“This change allows us to enrich our program benefits, ensuring we provide the most rewarding experience possible,” said a promotional email sent out this week to the casino’s rewards club members.

Free Parking in Vegas 

Long gone are the days of free valet parking for all casino customers in Sin City. What was once a staple of the Las Vegas experience has suffered the same fate as that era’s iconic casino, the Tropicana.

Only three resorts on the Las Vegas Strip now offer free self-parking for all visitors. They are The Sahara, Circus Circus, and Treasure Island. 

Fashion Show Mall and The Shops at Crystals also let customers park for free. Las Vegas locals get more free options, as MGM Resorts and Caesars Entertainment properties all offer three hours of free parking for Nevada residents.

The Fontainebleau is the most generous outside of completely free for all customers. It offers four hours to all visitors without charge. Although that may soon be dropped like its once-generous reward system if the mega resort’s fortunes don’t turn around. 

Embattled Resort

Speaking of fortunes that may turn, Resorts World Las Vegas is currently facing plenty of interest in its own affairs. 

The media, Silver State gaming regulators, and several federal agencies are all apparently interested in the millions of dollars that suspected illegal California bookmakers and their associates were allegedly gambling at the casino from 2022 to 2023. 

The scandal has so far led to the firing and criminal prosecution of former Resorts World and MGM President Scott Sibella. But it is widely expected that the investigation is far from finished. 

Maybe Resorts World is planning to pay for the potentially massive fines that could potentially be coming its way by dropping free parking. On the other hand, the Genting-operated casino has so far not been officially accused of any wrongdoing.
