LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

After a tumultuous timeline that put its construction in doubt, the Lucky Dragon hotel-casino just off the Las Vegas Strip announced its opening date.

The hotel property located on Sahara Avenue just west of the Las Vegas Boulevard will hold its grand opening on Saturday, Dec. 3. According to the Lucky Dragon, the opening will be marked with an extravagant series of Asian demonstrations including a firecracker show.

And, as a way to live up to its name, the grand opening will include a lion and dragon dance, which is a cultural means of bringing good luck and good fortune to all, according to the Lucky Dragon.

The hotel already opened job applications for positions at the property. The Lucky Dragon is also slated to receive reservations through its website beginning Oct. 1.

Earlier this year, the property announced it gained financing after a request for funds last year with the city of Las Vegas fell through.

Lucky Dragon, which was originally eyed for an August opening, will hold 204 total hotel rooms, a collection of dining, a 27,500-square-foot gaming floor with a majority of Asian casino games, a spa and a tea garden.
