A 30,000 square foot world class gaming arena is sitting in the heart of the entertainment capital of the world... Las Vegas. You think casino gambling and slots are big in Vegas - and they are. You think the T-Mobile Arena is big in Vegas with all of it's concerts and Vegas Golden Knights inaugural season and Stanley Cup playoff success so far. And it is. I've seen several concerts there myself - Carrie Underwood, George Strait twice, and Garth Brooks. It's an awesome addition... and shhh... Chicago-style pizza is nearby in the form of Giordano's Pizza. And it, too, is awesome.
As big as those are and have been, this may be just as big. The Luxor - where I got to be Howard Hughes-like and live there in a strip hotel (which is not allowed unless you get a waiver that became mandated after Howard Hughes stowed himself away in the Desert Inn for 4 years in the late 1960's) partially alone and then with my family for a total of four months as we moved to Las Vegas from Iowa when a took the position of an officer in the IT group that owned the Luxor - has opened a gaming arena so large and so futuristically popular that it takes up multi-levels designed to host every form of competitive gaming, from daily play to high-stakes esports tournaments.
The arena features a competition stage, 50-foot LED video wall, telescopic seating, PC and console gaming stations, and a network TV-quality production studio. The arena has other defining elements like virtual reality platforms and retro gaming consoles. The Luxor has brought the esports entertainment experience to Vegas and it is available for both casual and professional gamers, or even non-gamers who want an insider's look at what's quickly becoming one of the world's most popular spectator sports.
Esports gaming ... it's real and it's taking over the Las Vegas Strip. Check it out.
