This sounds like one heck of an establishment and it would be a mind blowing experience to be lucky to go there. The Philippines is huge and they should attract plenty of business

well from the point of customer it is great news- more establishments out there, more competition usually equals better prices more promotions, vodka, cannabis and more fun. now if we are looking from business point- probably not very good news, more competition- less profits, more fighting for the customers.

There sure is a tropical atmosphere there. But don't you get sick after a while. Too much coconuts. Coconuts, only I can think about coconuts. In your drink. In you oil. it's even in your food. After a couple of days you become a coconut. It's not fun anymore. They get the coconuts cheap, coconuts are good for you, but when you eat them too much. They are not tasty anymore. It's even in the Hotel room as an aroma.

Have you ever thought about what kind of drinks you get at those resorts... cococnuts

Big money talks once more Smile Some serious amount invested in this project.
Philippines has some great places to visit, and it can get close to next Hawaii probably.
Never been to any of them, but both needs to be in someones "visit calendar"

another super casino center is open in the world and I think it's good ... the more places in the world where you can play offline the more choices people have more opportunities ... probably at the opening were some some interesting promotions and offers

Being in a resort like this is great. And i wouldnt mind if i didnt play casino games after all.
And how to afford playing if you are paying for accommodation there Smile
It looks very expensive one, and not much info for it, is out yet.

Interesting to see how the yakuza trying to white out their income, where a huge percentage already comes from gambling activities - which of course are illegal in Japan - not sure if they going to suceed but who knows?

Kazuo Okada? I have never heard of his name until I read this thread. He seems to have been residing with his family in Hong Kong for quite a while.
The Philippines is definitely one of the most exotic places I have ever visited. Now I have another reason to revisit there.

I couldn't even tell exactly where the phillipines are exactly on a earth globe unfortunately. And I'm not too bad at geography... Just saying... it's probably not the most touristic place in the world yet. I know it's not the first place I would go to if I wanted to gamble. But yeah from Canada it's a pretty long trip lol

Good luck to them, I didn't even know if gambling was legal over there Smile

Well machine if you dont know where about Philippines is, then you are not good in geography Smile
I thought it was a usa only thing, but ti looks like it is more like north america,
not having a clue about geography in general Smile
I remember when i saw in tv, when the first war in iraq started,
reporters asking americans, where iraq is.
Unbelievable.... lol

This is a rea lly big project and it will be interesting to see how will it do. Big projects like this generates good money for local economy, create jobs so they are always wanted by everyone, maybe only ones that do not like them is competitors. Customers just live such big projects

Big projects means big corruption at almost everywhere in the world. This is why the local politicians and businessmen are happy, everybody gets a slice from the cake before it's been baked.
