MGM Cotai is waiting for a license approval

The upcoming casino in Macau is waiting for the government to approve its license.

Macau.- Casino operator MGM China said that it is currently waiting for the government to approve its license for MGM Cotai, even though the opening date for the gambling facility is still on schedule for the 29th of January.

CEO of MGM China, Grant Bowie, said that they’re still working towards the opening on the 29. “We’re working through now with the government with all the approvals. I think, most people now in Macau, we have very stringent standards, and we’re working through those process and collaborate with the government. We’re confident that we can make the 29th opening,” he said.

The CEO commented that the company is looking for qualified non-resident workers as the facility is facing a shortage in manpower, even though employees are being transferred to the new facility.

Late last month, 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.
