Bally's Las Vegas will rebrand as a Horseshoe hotel-casino this year and host the World Series of Poker in late May.
The Horseshoe Las Vegas project includes an exterior renovation, new entertainment and culinary options, and a redesigned casino floor and common areas.
"At Horseshoe, it's all about the gambler. Since 1951, Horseshoe casinos have been home to the best odds, highest limits and biggest jackpots. So, it's fitting that we bring Horseshoe back to Las Vegas, and right on the Las Vegas Strip," said Jason Gregorec, the hotel's senior vice president and general manager.
A rebranding of the 2,800-room hotel is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2022.
