After the necessary permissions, the Saipan casino celebrated the opening of its first phase on Thursday.
Saipan.- Imperial Pacific International Holdings (IPI) held the grand opening of its Saipan casino Imperial Pacific yesterday. The gambling facility has faced several hurdles in the past, such as questions over its safety.
The Commonwealth Casino Commission (CCO) granted IPI the permission to launch gaming operations at the Imperial Pacific Resorts late last month. IPI fulfilled the Commonwealth Casino Commission’s requirements as to health and safety regulations. Operators adapted the casino with new fire alarm system, as well as the company committed to hire personal for fire watch, an independent safety consultant and general clean up.
As the gambling facility opened its doors, construction workers decided to launch protests against the operator as they said that they didn’t get paid the past week. Richard Huang, gaming analyst at Nomura, said: “It’s definitely a big deal because they had very little operating assets before opening this property,” considering that the opening takes a high-growth, as Financial Times said.
