Companies to take part in upcoming request-for-proposal
Japan’s Current Corp and Japan unit of Casinos Austria International Holding GmbH have confirmed with GGRAsia their desire to participate in the request-for-proposal (RFP) process for Nagasaki’s IR casino resort project situated at the Dutch-inspired theme park Huis Ten Bosch theme park in Sasebo city.
On June 25, 2020, The Nagasaki Governor, Hodo Nakamura, commenced the RFP process to identify potential vying private-sector partners for the Nagasaki IR casino project and aims to conduct its operator partner selection by winter.
The initial three contenders to develop the Nagasaki IR included Hong Kong’s Oshidori International Holdings. However, GGRAsia reached out to the company on whether it intended to participate in Nagasaki’s RFP process, but did not get a response.
The former investor in what was the Grand Waldo casino hotel in Macau operated under the gaming license of Galaxy Entertainment Group Ltd. – Hong Kong-listed Get Nice Holdings Ltd. – has expressed interest on joining the race to a Nagasaki IR casino license with a gesture of paying an “earnest money” deposit of HK$25 million (US$3.2 million) to Japan’s Current Corporation or the SRC Group.
