The casino and resort earned Php2.1 million (US$43,189) during those three months, a 98 per cent drop on Q2 2019.

Its second-quarter loss on operating costs and expenses grew to Php150.78 million (US$3.1 million). The gaming group’s current liabilities exceeded its assets by Php229 million (US$4.7 million).

The company has been working with the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR), the Philippines gaming regulator, to finally resume operations now that restrictions in Manila have been eased. It said it is also investigating other business opportunities.
