South Korea: Inspire still on-track for 2022 opening
Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment’s multi-billion-dollar casino resort project near Seoul, South Korea remains on schedule.
South Korea.- A multi-billion-dollar casino resort project near Seoul, South Korea is still on-track for its opening in 2022.
The project from US-based tribal casino operator Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment has said that plans for the casino resort were still moving forward despite the global Coronavirus pandemic.
Under the working title of ‘Inspire’, the casino resort will be located in Incheon, near South Korea’s capital Seoul.
Due to many restrictions in place because of the Covid-19 pandemic, observers argue that the 2022 completion deadline could be unrealistic.
World economies are already struggling as countries implement lockdowns, curfews and other restrictions as part of efforts to contain the further spread of Covid-19.
In several countries, only essential services have remained opened during mandatory lockdowns.
Mohegan CEO, Mario Kontomerkos, said: “Regarding Inspire, work continues and we are working toward our 2022 goal.”
The first phase of project Inspire will include 1,250 hotel rooms, a 15,000-seat entertainment venue, 40 food and beverage outlets, as well as a foreigner-only gaming venue containing 160 table games and 700 slot machines.
