Operator has revealed it will soon start to run a casino in Kathmandu.
India.- Indian casino company, Delta Corp Ltd, has revealed it will expand its geographical footprint by operating a casino in Nepal’s capital, Kathmandu. The Company will run a casino at the Marriott Hotel, the firm’s first foray outside India’s gaming market.
Nepal has several casino venues including Tiger Palace Resort Bhairahawa, operated by Silver Heritage Group Ltd near that country’s border with the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. Silver Heritage also manages gaming at the Millionaire’s Club and Casino in Kathmandu.
“Our subsidiary in Nepal has been issued a licence for operating a casino in Nepal,” Delta Corp confirmed in a statement to local press.
The company said previously that it planned to expand outside India, “in line with its strategy of expanding in the region”. It is already operating casinos in the Indian states of Goa and Sikkim.
The foray into the Nepal market follows an agreement that Delta Corp signed in 2017 with Everest Hospitality and Hotel Pvt Ltd to lease space at the Marriott Hotel (pictured) in Kathmandu.
Everest Hospitality and Hotel is a subsidiary of Nepal-based hospitality firm MS Group. At the time the agreement was signed, the 214-room Marriott-branded hotel was still under construction; it opened in July last year.
