Lucky Dragon hotel-casino near Las Vegas Strip opening Dec. 3

The Lucky Dragon, the 200-room Asian-themed property just off the Strip on Sahara Avenue, will open Dec. 3, company officials announced Tuesday.

The property, which will have a 27,500-square-foot casino with 37 table games and 300 slot machines, will begin taking reservations for rooms on the company’s website on Oct. 1.

Officials said the property will commemorate the opening with a series of Asian celebrations including a firecracker show, a typical occurrence in many Asian holidays and celebrations, to drive away evil spirits; a lion and dragon dance, bringing good luck and good fortune; and the world’s largest traditional Kung Fu tea service will run throughout the hotel and casino.
