Casino Jai Alai won't open its doors until early 2017.

Its casino operator announced that the venue is still not ready to welcome players.

Macau.- SJM Holdings Limited, the operator of Casino Jai Alai, announced that the venue is not ready to re-open its doors until early 2017. The casino announced earlier this year that the venue would be available before the end of 2016.

According to Asia Gaming Brief, SJM Holding Limited is finishing the renovations in the casino, and it is expected to feature 30 to 40 mass market gaming tables. Chief Executive Officer for SJM Holdings Limited Ambrose So, said: “It’s hard to determine an exact date. We will surely finish the construction works within this year but we also wish the government could cooperate at speeding up the approval, licensing and inspection procedures.”

The company made the announcement that they would be closing the Casino Jai Alai back in 2012, when they reportes that they would re-open with a 132-room hotel and a gaming facility offering more than 100 new slots. Earlier this year SJM reported that they’re interested in developing Crimea’s gaming zone, where Russia plans to set an entertainment city for tourism.
