Baha Mar, located in Nassau, The Bahamas, celebrated a soft opening on April 21, a few weeks after receiving government approvals for its gaming license.

The hotel will consist of 1,800 contemporary rooms, while the casino boasts 100,000 square feet of gaming space, more than 1,000 slot machines, 126 table games, race and sports betting, mobile gaming, and VIP gaming rooms.
