The vote of confidence suggests that the Nagasaki Prefectural Government is likely to get one of Japan’s three IR licences

Japan.- Nagasaki has distinguished itself as the best-managed integrated resort bid contender in Japan.

The city has drawn regional support from other governors and from the general public, apparently with no signs of any opposition to its IR plans, unlike in other prefectures that are intending to bid.

Five consortiums have entered the request for proposal process for Nagasaki’s integrated resorts bid: Casinos Austria; Pixel Company with Groupe PartoucheGet Nice Holdings with Current Corp; Oshidori International Development with US tribal casino operator Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment; and THE NIKI with Chyau Fwu (Parkview) Group.

All five candidate operator groups have met the prefecture’s initial qualification requirements.
