HO TRAM CASINO TO OPEN ON JULY 26 Macau Business
Ho Tram Project Co announced that its first resort, "The Grand Ho Tram Strip" in Ho Tram, Vietnam, will open on July 26. The casino will be operated by Ho Tram Project Co itself.
The first phase of The Grand Ho Tram Strip includes 541 five-star rooms, gaming facilities, meeting and convention space, ten bars and restaurants, a spa, three swimming pools and luxury retail shops.
Ho Tram Project Co announced last October that it had broken ground on the second phase of the project, which will include a second tower of 559 rooms and additional leisure facilities.
GOVT MUST DISCLOSE WHICH CASINOS JUNKETS PARTNER WITH Macau Business
The Court of Second Instance has sided with lawyer Vong Chong Kio in his request that the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau disclose which casinos two junket operators are doing business with. He had requested the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau to disclose the information but the bureau denied the request, saying Vong had no cause to have access to the information, which was restricted.
Vong first appealed to the Administrative Court, which sided with the regulator. Now, the Court of Second Instance has ruled in his favor. The court says “there is nothing restricted, confidential, intimate or secret” about which casinos junket operators work with.
