HUGE Genting Casino Resort To Be Opened December 8th!Thursday, Nov 16, 2017 12:46
Genting has largely made its money from its giant casino resorts and hotels scattered throughout the world, they are good at building them and they are even better at running them as successful, fun and responsible places for people to play their favourite casino games beside other casino fanatics.
So it makes perfect sense that Genting would be willing to construct a brand new $1.8 billion casino resort on the holiday island of Jeju which it wishes to open to the public towards the end of this year.
If you’re in any way a fan of the world of casino games and gambling in general than there is no doubt in my mind that you would absolutely love this place. And who knows, by the time you finish reading it a little trip out to the island of Jeju might just be on the cards!
The announcement for this plan was officially made a couple of years ago as these things always take a while in order for the wheels to be set into motion. However, we are definitely reaching the end part of the waiting game and excitement is building up for this like nothing else in the gambling world. According to its developer, the development is set to open on December 8 which is perfect timing for all those looking for a winter break away with some awesome casino action!
In a statement to the press, the developer – Landing International of Hong Kong – said that the December opening will see the launch of a number of facilities, including a Landing-branded hotel, exhibition and conference areas, shopping facilities and eateries.
When the resort first launches, unfortunately, the huge casino part of it will not be fully operational, although there is expected to be a temporary casino facility rather than the large-scale gaming capacity that is due to be unveiled in 2018. SO if you do head over there you will still be able to play all of your favourite casino games just like you wanted to.
Back in August, Landing said that it had been contemplating moving its current land-based casino operations based at the Hyatt Regency Jeju Hotel across to Jeju Shinhwa World on a temporary basis, ahead of the completion of the site’s permanent casino facilities, which are expected to be ready by the end of 2019.
It is planned that between now and the December opening date a number of new facilities at the site will be unveiled, including a family-friendly theme park that will be based around 15 rides and YG Town, a bar and café run by well-known entertainment agency YG Entertainment, which works with a number of South Korean entertainers, including many of the country’s most famous K-pop performers.
Eventually, the site will also include a second theme park – Lionsgate Movie World – and another hotel facility in the shape of the Four Seasons Resorts and Spa.
The project was initially a joint affair between Landing and the Malaysian casino giant Genting Casino, but Genting sold its half-stake in the project in November last year when it became clear that the South Korean government did not intend to lift its ban on casino gambling for South Korean nationals.
