Lucky Dragon, we hardly knew ye


EOG Dedicated

A few weeks before the Lucky Dragon held its grand opening with dragon and lion dancers, a top executive promised big things.

The boutique hotel-casino would be “completely unique, not only in Las Vegas but in the world,” Chief Operating Officer Dave Jacoby said.

Less than two years later, the bankrupt resort is set for a full shutdown.

The Lucky Dragon’s nine-story hotel tower is expected to close Tuesday, several months after its casino and restaurants shut down. The 2.5-acre property is scheduled to come up for sale at a foreclosure auction Oct. 30, county records show.

This hotel was a immigration scam to begin with that is why they had to keep the hotel open only to give these Chinese investors permanent residency within fed guidelines. Casino was never busy the two times I went in.

I also visited the Lucky Dragon twice.

Both times, there were more employees in the place than customers.

Never a good sign.
