The Manila casino will host its grand opening in April.
Philippines.- Manila is currently under the spotlight since the city is scheduled to open two gambling facilities in the next two months. Whilst Okada Manila will host its grand opening in the last days of March, Winford Hotel & Casino will be open to the public in April.
According to the Inquirer, the facility located at the San Lazaro Tourism and Business Park in Manila will occupy part of the land where the Manila Jockey horse racing track held its operations. The US$140 million 22-story hotel-casino complex is operated by an affiliate of the Manila Jockey Club, and will also feature three floors of entertainment and gaming areas.
The 7500 square meters of gaming space will host approximately 700 gaming machines from Australia and the United States, as well as 160 gaming tables. Gaming at the casino is possible thanks to a joint venture between Pagcor (Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp) and MJIC. Winford Hotel & Casino held a soft opening back in January 6.
