The period of the closure has been repeatedly extended in line with continuing concerns about the spread of Coronavirus.

South Korea.- Kangwon Land, the only casino in South Korea where locals are permitted to gamble, will remain closed until May 4 due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

The casino has extended the closure period several times already.

It originally shut down gaming operations for three days from February 23 to February 26 before extending the closure for three more days to February 29. 

Casino management then took the decision to extend the closure once again for a further seven days March 15 and then for a further week. Another extension was announced until Mid-April.

According to Asia Gaming Brief, the company’s resort facilities may be reopened in stages, though no precise schedule has been provided.

The closure is only the second time the casino has shut its doors to the public in its history. It previously closed for one day in 2012 to check security cameras following a security breach.
