Wynn and Encore announced today that the resorts will start charging for parking on August 7. These are the first casinos north of Mirage to start charging for parking on the Las Vegas Strip.
Like all other resorts that charge for parking, the first hour is free. After that, self parking rates at Wynn and Encore are:
- 1-2 hours: $7
- 2-4 hours: $12
- 4-24 hours: $15
- Additional 24 hours: $15
- Lost ticket: $30
Guests may pay for parking at Wynn and Encore using cash and credit cards at kiosks located near casino exits. Credit cards are accepted at the exit gate. There is a potential motivation to use the kiosks in the casino. Guests will have 59 minutes to exit the gate. This could save some money for those on the cusp of the next payment tier.
There is a $15 fee for valet services of less than four hours. The cost is $20 per day for longer visits.
The above fees apply to locals. Caesars is the only group that charges tourists for parking but gives this service for free to those with a Nevada ID.
Hotel guests can ask the front desk to program their room key to open the gate. Charges will be placed on the room’s check and paid at the time of departure.
Active players can receive free parking as a perk. The formula for casino players is not published. Poker players receive free parking for playing 75 hours of cash games or 20 tournaments in the previous year, according to @Robvegaspoker. Players can receive free valet for giving 150 hours of action.
Wynn and Encore published a parking FAQ on its website.
There are still several resorts on the Las Vegas Strip that do not charge for parking. These include Tropicana, Planet Hollywood, Venetian, Palazzo, Treasure Island, SLS Las Vegas, Circus Circus and Stratosphere.
