South Korea.- Paradise Co Ltd has re-opened its casino on Jeju island despite the on-going Coronavirus pandemic.

However, in a filing to the Korea Exchange the company said it had extended the closure period for its other three gaming venues in country.

Its properties, closed since March 24, will remain shuttered until April 20 in line with the country’s efforts to contain the spread of Covid-19.

According to the note, the suspension of three casino sites, located at Seoul, Incheon and Busan, is scheduled until 6am on April 20.

It emphasised as well that its hotel operations were still “open”. Paradise Casino Jeju Grand reopened today at 6am, the firm said.

Another foreigner-only casino operator, Grand Korea Leisure Co Ltd, which operates three venues under the Seven Luck brand, had already announced last week that it was suspending operations at its casinos until April 20.

The only casino resort where nationals are allowed to gamble, Kangwon Land Inc, has been closed since February 23 and also confirmed it would remain closed until April 20.
