Gamblers Storm Singapore Casino in First WeekPublished February 23, 2010 by OCR Editor
Resorts World Sentosa only opened its doors on the Chinese New Year.
Singapore's first casino opened its doors to the public on the Chinese New Year, and the verdict from the public is very clear - they love it.
Around 128,000 people flocked to the Resorts World Sentosa casino before it had even been open a week, and management were expecting those numbers to rise as the holidays draw to a close.
"These queue lines are still here," the casino's assistant director for communications Robin Goh was quoted as saying by local media. "This being the first non-Chinese New Year weekend, we are expecting large queues to come in as well."
Built by Malaysia's Genting Group and including a Universal Studios theme park, hotels and convention facilities, Resorts World Sentosa is the first of two casinos set to operate in Singapore this year.
The Marina Bay Sands is due to begin operating in April.
