South Korea.- Grand Korea Leisure (GKL) has announced the temporary closure of its Seven Luck Seoul Gangnam until 11am on Thursday (July 22) to carry out disinfection after a worker tested positive for Covid-19.
It comes just a week after a snap-closure at the Seven Luck Casino Millennium Seoul, which was closed as a “pre-emptive measure” aimed to avoid the spread of Covid-19 cases to protect the safety of customers and employees. The Seven Luck Seoul Gangnam was also previously closed just a few days before, from July 10 to 12.
South Korea’s prime minister Kim Boo-kyum has increased social distancing rules in Greater Seoul to Level 4 until at least July 26. During the last 24 hours, the Ministry of Health reported 1,278 new Covid-19 cases.
GKL reported that casino sales in June rose by 45.6 per cent when compared to the previous month, up from US$9.2m to US$13.1m. Sales were up 18.7 per cent when compared to 2020.
Table games sales reached KRW13.28bn, up 60.6 per cent when compared to May and 27 per cent when compared to last year. Machine game sales were weak during June, with a decline of 19.3 per cent month-on-month and 24 per cent year-on-year.
