MPEL has raised its planned investment in City of Dreams Manila to USD680 million. CEO Lawrence Ho said yesterday, adding that the figure could rise further. “It keeps going up. Our most recent number is USD680 million because PAGCOR will allow us more (gaming) tables and we keep finding great brands,” said Ho. City of Dreams Manila will open mid-2014 and is part of the government’s Entertainment City in the reclamation area on Manila Bay, which was modeled after the Las Vegas gaming strip. City of Dreams Manila will open with 365 gaming tables, 1,680 slot machines and 1,680 electronic table games.
