Lotte Tour Development has announced it is ready to open its Jeju Dream Tower in June. However, the opening depends on evolution of the Covid-19 pandemic.
South Korea.- The Jeju Dream Tower casino is ready to open after passing a final inspection.
In April, Lotte Tour Development received transfer permission from the governor for the relocation of Jeju casino to the US$1.4bn new venue.
The company has announced the casino will open in June. However, there is some uncertainty surrounding the opening as casinos are still struggling due to the lack of tourism owing to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Jeju Dream Tower casino was expected to open in May, but it was delayed due to new restrictions imposed by the government after a rise in Covid-19 cases.
The casino will have 150 tables offering five types of table game, 90 slot machines, and 70 electronic gaming machines.
According to local media, the casino operator expects to generate nearly KRW300bn (US$270.8m) in annual sales.
Aside from the casino, Jeju Dream Tower includes a 1,600-room Grand Hyatt hotel, 14 restaurants and bars, a shopping mall, an outdoor pool, two spas and a top-floor skydeck lounge.
