Japan Urged to Develop Multiple Casinos in Osaka

Pachinko should be unaffected by IRs.

In a research report compiled by Las Vegas – based research firm Global Market Advisors, Japan would be well served to develop one site that would host multiple casinos.  The white paper entitled “White Paper: Japan Integrated Resorts,” suggests that the concept of allowing multiple operators to develop integrated resorts on the Yumeshima Island in Osaka would create critical mass and a true tourist destination.

Global Casino Industry Juiced for Japan

by Muhammad Cohen

The world’s casino business sees Japan’s casino legalization as a golden opportunity and, even amid the ongoing recovery in Macau, the gaming industry is all abuzz about it.  One unscientific indicator: I’m a speaker at next month’s Japan Gaming Congress in Tokyo and I’ve had several industry friends ask for my help to get them on the conference program.  More scientifically, a study by Global Market Advisors indicates, no matter how Japan plays casino legalization – or, as supporters would prefer, integrated resort development – it will be the second biggest market in Asia and number three in the world, behind U.S. and Macau.  That explains why Las Vegas Sands founder Sheldon Adelson says his company will invest $10 billion in a Japan integrated resort, and Melco Resorts and Entertainment Chairman and CEO Lawrence Ho says his company will spend “whatever it takes” to secure a Japan gaming license.  But the multiple scenarios also underline how little anyone knows about Japan has in mind for development of its so-called IRs.

Silver Heritage Casino Hotel in Nepal Has A Mountain To Climb

by Muhammad Cohen

Frontier market specialist Silver Heritage Group’s casino project in Nepal targeting Indian visitors is over budget and will miss its scheduled opening this month.  That’s led to a suspension of trading in the company’s shares in Australia, a revamp of project management and a new fund raising exercise.  None of that means Tiger Palace Resort at Bhairahawa, the first purpose built integrated resort in South Asia, is a bad idea.
