Six weeks after announcing plans to demolish three closed casinos, Red Rock Resorts said Friday it would shut down the small Wild Wild West casino and hotel and raze the property for future development.

In an email, Red Rock Resorts spokesman Michael Britt said the casino would close on Wednesday at midnight. Still, it anticipates all the Wild Wild West employees would be offered jobs at other properties operated by Station Casinos, Red Rock’s management subsidiary.

Red Rock said the 20 acres that Wild Wild West occupies near the intersection of Interstate 15 and Tropicana Boulevard would be combined with an adjoining 80 acres for a project yet to be determined.
