MGM Cotai opening could be further delayed as suggested by Macao Government Tourism Office.
Macau.- Recently MGM Resorts representatives announced that MGM Cotai opening was delayed to February 13. However, the head Macao Government Tourism Office Maria Helena de Senna Fernandes spoke with the local press this week and revealed that the inauguration date could be further delayed as the casino has not received the operating license yet.
“We are still waiting for the evaluations of other technical departments involved in the process. If everything is up to the standards, we can advance with the inspection and eventually issue the licence,” said Fernandes.
MGM China announced that the grand opening will include promotional offers directed to individuals, families and business people through flexible and high value packages. The offers start at US$170 for a one night stay at MGM Cotai’s hotel, whilst an additional US$60 resort credit will be given to spend in the restaurants, spa and entertainment facilities of the guests’ choice. Ferry transportation and dining discounts when spending resort credits will also be given.
MGM China delayed the opening due to the Typhoon Hato that hit Macau during the last week of August and destroyed multiple parts of the city. Moreover, after the storm the casino went through a fire that left one of the workers in the hospital. During those two events, the facility was forced to close its doors for a month approximately.
