Nepal casino industry just celebrated their long-delayed opening of Silver Heritage Group’s Tiger Palace Resort in Bhairahawa. It is now all set to take it to the next level. With an aim to operate a casino in the Marriott Hotel, Kathmandu; India’s leading casino operator Delta Corp, has signed a memorandum with the subsidiary of Nepalese conglomerate MS Group, Everest Hospitality and Hotel Private Limited. Nepalese media outlet MyRepublica has announced this news.
The 235-room-five-star hotel is expected to open its doors in June 2018. It is located in the Naxal region of Kathmandu. This is the first time when Delta Corp will be operating a casino outside of their native country. On the other hand, the Tiger Palace Resort Bhairahawa is the only hotel in Nepal which is opened for the casino game. So, this is a huge opportunity for the casino lovers across the country.
Delta Corp is currently operating three floating and one land-based casino in two Indian states; i.e., Goa and Sikkim. The leading casino operator of India is also engaged in running an integrated resort in India’s UT Daman and Diu. Despite the strict rules of Public Gambling Act, 1976, Delta is yet to receive an official approval to make their long lasting dream a reality in their flashy Daman resort. It is now willing to run a casino with 1,000 slot machines and 30 gaming tables in this territory. The casino will be offering poker, rummy, roulette, baccarat, Indian Flush, and Andar Bahar, apart from the casino tables. It is expected to be launched on November 30, 2017. The official website of Delta Corp has not published this news but a Russian affiliated news agency declared it.
As of now the only games that are scheduled for December 15-17 of WGF, comprises a set of matches at the Daman property, but the activities will be limited only to “video gaming” that is Ea Sports titles such as FIFA 18, Counter Strike and DOTA 2. So, it seems that Daman’s long-suffering would-be casino gamblers have to make do with video games only.
