[News] Resorts World At Sentosa Granted License To Operate Singapore First Casino

After lifting a 40-year ban on casino, the Singapore Government has finally granted the license to the city state’s very first casino. In a brief statement posted on the CRA (Casino Regulatory Authority) of Singapore website, it has issued a casino license to Resorts World at Sentosa Pte. Ltd on Saturday, 6th Feb 2010. The approval has been delayed after the Authority asked RWS for more information about the casino in December last year.

The officials have previously mentioned to open the casino as soon as they have been issued the license. However, there is no official news on the opening date so far. The Universal Studios theme park, on the other hand, has been planned to open by March this year.

In April 2005, the Singapore Government has eventually announced that it would have not only one, but two casinos in Singapore in a controversial u-turn from its long condemnation of gaming.

Resorts World at Sentosa is one of the two multi-billion dollars integrated resorts in Singapore to operate a casino, built by Malaysia’s Genting Bhd.
