Once MGM Resorts reopens its casinos in Las Vegas, visitors will no longer need to pay for self-parking, making it easier for tourists and locals alike to head to the restaurants as they reopen in Las Vegas.

So far, MGM Resorts only announced that the Bellagio, New York-New York, and possibly one other resort will open when Gov. Steve Sisolak allows casinos to reopen. He closed nonessential businesses including casinos on March 17 to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Free self-parking extends to each of the company’s resorts in Las Vegas, and MGM Resorts did not say whether valet parking would be free, adding that it was still evaluating the service.

MGM Resorts started charging for parking in 2016, making it the first to ask visitors to pay. Caesars Entertainment, the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, and Wynn Las Vegas followed suit, with Wynn dropping paid parking last April. Charges at MGM Resorts ranged from $10 to $18 a day, with lower-end properties charging less. Valet charges rang in between $24 and $30.

Casinos and resorts will open in phase three or four of Sisolak’s slow reopening of the state for business. Right now, Nevada is in phase one of reopening, with dine-in restaurants, including some within casinos, permitted to reopen with restrictions.
