Kingson Sian, the CEO of Travellers International Hotel Group, has announced the reopening of Resorts World Manila next month. The venue is owned by a joint venture between Genting Group and Alliance Global Group’s, Travellers International Hotel Group, Inc.

In 2017, a disgruntled, failed gambler attacked the Resorts World Manila in order to rob it, but ultimately decided to set it on fire. The arson resulted in the deaths of 38 people and heavily damaged the casino’s second floor. The resort has not been operational since.

Kingson Sian said that it will be “an entire new floor of gaming space,” and, “As we expand the gaming space, we are attracting not only locals but also foreign players to come, and we can develop new junket relationships.”

Sian further told the investors that, once the venue is completely operational again, it will offer 465 gaming tables and 2300 slot machines. The total number of gaming positions will be greater than what was offered before the attack.

The authorities in Cambodia have granted 13 casino licences in the first four months of this year. Ros Phearun, an official in the Ministry of Finance in Phnom Penh, said that the authorities had now granted a total of 163 casino licences and 91 of the licences were for casinos in the province of Preah Sihanouk.

“We have granted a lot of licences, but there are actually only 51 casinos in operation. The rest are now being built, while some have halted operations. The rise in the number of casinos reflects the increase in tourists, particularly Chinese,” Mr Phearun said.

He said the government is expecting US$70 million in tax revenue from the gaming industry this year. He also added that the relevant ministries had finished drafting legislation governing gaming, and that the respective bill would be sent to the Council of Ministers soon, with a view to its eventual enactment.

“With this law, we hope that to attract more big casino investors and increase revenue from the industry. I think that, as a result of this law, revenue collected from the industry will double,” Phearun said.
