The Guinness World Record for “largest digital video game display” was set on Thursday night at Resorts World Las Vegas. More accurately, it was set on Resorts World, which has a tower that doubles as a 100K square-foot video screen.
The record was set by a 10-minute game of Pac-Man played by WWE Superstars Becky Lynch and Bianca Belair, along with eSports players Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf and Alex “Golden Boy” Mendez, following the annual eSports Awards.
Though the game was not played well, it easily beat the previous 25K square-foot record.
“I actually don’t have my glasses on today, but the screen is so big that I don’t need them,” Belair told MSN beforehand.
Public Display of Disaffection
This was much better public relations for Resorts World than the last time its tower-sized display made headlines.
In August, Nico Samarxhi, GM at the Wynn’s XS Nightclub, denied an Australian high-roller’s request to open the club an hour early, just for him. The high-roller threatened both Samarxhi and his family, earning him a lifetime ban from the club.
The high-roller then headed across the Strip to Zouk, the nightclub at Wynn’s competitor, Resorts World, where he spent more than $200K on booze and table packages.
As part of one of the packages, he wrote a text that appeared briefly on the massive video screen. The message read: “FOOD STAMPS FOR NIKO.”
That perk is no longer available at Resorts World.
