With the coronavirus pandemic shuttering casinos across the globe, some casino operators are rolling the dice and reopening amidst the coronavirus outbreak. Three casinos in the Czech Republic will reopen their doors on Monday, May 11, including the King's Resort Rozvadov, Admiral Casino Rozvadov, and the King's Casino Prague.

All eyes will be on RozVegas when the King's Casino reopens to gamblers for the first time since March 13. Gamblers will catch a glimpse at what gambling life will be like in the post-pandemic world. Less tan 8,000 cases of COVID-19 were reported in the Czech Republic since the outbreak began, and only 257 Czechs died due to COVID-19 (compared to 257,000 worldwide fatalities).

The three casinos -- King's Resort Rozvadov, Admiral Casino Rozvadov, and the King's Casino Prague -- were initially shut down in early March on March 13. After two months, they will reopen for business.

Obviously, the casino industry will be paying close attention to the initial wave of casinos that open their doors. If all goes well, others will quickly follow suit. Obviously, if workers and guests and gamblers become infected with coronavirus, casinos will shut back down. In the meantime, everyone is watching and waiting to see if RozVegas can pull off a successful reopening.

The King's Casino in RozVegas hosted the World Series of Poker Europe the last three times since 2017. It's slated to host the WSOP Europe again in 2020.

Last October, Alexandros Kolonias from Greece shipped the 2019 WSOP Europe €10K Main Event at the King's Casino for a score worth €1.13 million. In November 2018, British pro Jack Sinclair took down the 10K Main Event for €1.1 million. At the first-ever WSOP Europe Main Event in RozVegas back in 2017, Spain's Marti Roca De Torres defeated Gianluca Speranza heads-up for the bracelet and €1.1 million in cash.

In addition to playing host for the WSOP Europe, the King's Casino in RozVegas is also been the crossroads of other tournament series including the WPT, partypoker LIVE events and Triton Poker High Roller Series.

The King's Casino has the largest poker room in Europe. Players are itching to get back to live action.

In the USA, they will play four-handed poker tables whenever Nevada casinos open up. Meanwhile down in Florida, the Derby Lane will reopen its poker room at 25% of its capacity but tables will be 6-max only.

Although the WSOP in LAs Vegas got pushed back to this fall, that might not actually happen... so there's a prevailing thought that the only bracelets up for grabs in 2020 might be in RozVegas. No word on the future of the WSOP Europe. But if RozVegas is opening up including the King's Casino, it makes sense that the WSOP Europe will also be a go.

In case you were wondering, gaming revenue plunged 97% in Macau in April 2020 compared to April 2019. During the coronavirus outbreak in China, casinos in Macau were losing upwards of $1 million per day that their doors were closed.

Has it already opened? I like good casinos, and can`t help waiting their opening! These days during quarantine I began playing online casino, and you know I found some really good ones. Now I`m playing syndicate casino Australia, there are all the popular games on their site, and they offer interesting bonuses for all registered customers. But the most important thing is their safety, as they offer a few ways of withdrawals, and you can get your winnings in a short time without any problems.
