S.S. Korean government withdraws permission for RFKR casino plan

The casino resort project in the Incheon Free Economic Zone failed to extend the opening deadline for the first phase by 12 months. The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism confirmed this information to the GGRA.

RFKR, which is pursuing plans for foreigner-only casinos in Incheon, is a company linked to Hong Kong-listed Chinese developer Guangzhou R&F Properties Limited and has applied to extend the opening date of the property on Dec. 29. However, the ministry told GRSA on Tuesday morning that “RFKR’s casino business license has officially been annulled.”

The ministry declined to comment further except to clarify that the RFKR side would appeal the decision for 90 days. GGRAsia has approached RFKR for comment on the ministry’s statement.

The most recent extension of the deadline was announced on March 17, 2023, marking the fourth site launch schedule revision since 2018, when Legacy Caesars Entertainment Corporation was a casino partner in the scheme. In early 2021, it was revealed that the casino brand acquired by El Dorado Resorts, a U.S. regional casino operator, had divested its investment in South Korea.

RFKR promised to resume construction by July 2023 at the time of the fourth deadline change, but that milestone was missed. According to the Incheon Free Economic Zone Authority (IFEZA), the public body overseeing the region, about 25 percent of RFKR’s plans have been developed although construction has been suspended since 2020.

The previous RFKR plan is in Yeongjong Island, near Incheon International Airport, the main airport in Yeongjong Island.

The site is close to Mohegan Inspire Entertainment Resort, another foreigner-only casino complex operated by the U.S.-based Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority, and trades under Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment. The latter launched the casino in early February after a launch for non-gaming in late November. It had an official launch ceremony on Mar. 5.

In addition, Incheon has Paradise City, a casino complex exclusively for foreigners, which was launched in 2017 by Korea’s Paradise and Japan’s Sega Sammy Holdings

IGT Flag Executives Change Board Leadership

Casino equipment maker and lottery provider International Game Technology (IGT) said its board of directors had implemented changes to the company’s board and executive team.

Marco Drago has decided to step down as a non-executive director of IGT’s board, according to a press release on Thursday. “He will serve the rest of his term and leave the board at the end of the company’s annual general meeting on May 14, 2024,” the game supplier said.

IGT operates three main categories: Global Lottery; Global Gaming; and PlayDigital, an online content division.

In late February, the company announced plans to spin off its global gaming and play digital division and merge with another gaming technology provider, Everi Holdings Inc.

IGT shareholders are expected to own about 54% of the combined company, with Vince Sadusky, IGT’s group chief executive, expected to lead the combined company.

In its announcement on Thursday, IGT said Enrico Drago had been appointed as a non-executive director of IGT’s board of directors, and would now resign as CEO of IGT PlayDigital.

Gil Rotem, currently president of iGaming at IGT PlayDigital, will “expand his role” to become president of IGT PlayDigital. He will report directly to Mr. Sadusky.

Changes related to IGT PlayDigital will take effect April 1, the company said.

According to an update on Thursday, IGT Executive Chairman Marco Sala thanked Marco Drago for his “year-long service and unwavering commitment to generating results and value for all IGT stakeholders.”

Mr Salah added: “Enrico Drago joining the board and leaving the executive position at IGT is a natural evolution that underpins the company’s vision for the next era of growth and change.”

IGT reported full-year 2023 revenue of $4.316, up 2.0% year-over-year, net income attributable to shareholders. The company said it achieved a “record” adjusted EBITDA of nearly $1.78 billion in 2023, up 6.9% year-over-year.

S’pore Tourism Board Recognizes Casino Concerns in China

A senior official at Singapore’s tourism agency (STB) said the group was “aware” of a statement from the Chinese embassy in Singapore asking Chinese people to stay away from gambling while abroad, and tourism authorities were “respectful” of the concerns expressed.

The comments forwarded to GGRAsia were attributed to STB Executive Director Andrew Pua, a Greater China International Group. The tourism board said it dealt with a “Chinese market media query.”

Singapore’s city-state has dual casino markets and other limited forms of legal betting.

“STB is aware of the statement issued by the embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Singapore, and we respect their concerns,” Poi said.

“Even if casino facilities are legally set up outside mainland China’s borders, citizens may be in violation of our country’s laws against cross-border gambling, especially participation in gambling organizations,” the embassy’s Chinese message, published on WeChat last week, said

“China’s position on cross-border gambling is consistent and clear,” a Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson told a regular press briefing in Beijing the same week. Lin Zhen, the official, said the media should deal with inquiries to “competent authorities” regarding “relevant legal provisions” dealing with the matter.

In an STB statement, Mr Pua said on behalf of the tourism organisation: “Singapore is a trusted and vibrant destination for both leisure and business.”

He added: “Chinese tourists visit Singapore for many reasons. Besides Singapore’s reputation as a family-friendly, bilingual, and safe destination, our diverse tour packages and strong event schedules make Singapore an attractive destination choice for Chinese visitors.”

The STB official also noted that the 30-day mutual visa waiver scheme with China “will continue to increase Singapore’s attractiveness as a tourist destination for Chinese visitors, increasing visitor arrivals and spending in Singapore across the tourism sector and related industries.”

About 327,000 people from China arrived in Singapore in February 2024, according to an STB statement, which “made China the top visitor source market in February, accounting for 96% of the 2019 figure.”

The update said the tourism board will continue its “Made in Singapore” campaign, which began in September 2023.

“We aim to reveal a rich and unique experience through branding and public relations [promotion] initiatives, giving Chinese visitors the opportunity to discover more hidden gems in Singapore in unexpected ways,” Pua said.

Why did Lee Dae-sung feel that the gas corporation was not sincere

Lee Dae-sung, a professional basketball player in Seoul who returned to Korea after a year, said, “There was no sincerity” in the proposal to recruit his former team, Daegu Korea Gas Corporation, apart from ” moral responsibility.” Looking at a series of processes, Korea Gas Corporation, which changed its position depending on the situation of free agent (FA) negotiations, has also encouraged confusion.

“We have asked the Korea Basketball League (KBL) to hold a financial committee regarding violations of regulations in the transfer process,” a KGC official said on the 23rd. “We are also considering legal aspects.” Lee Dae-sung explained at a press conference, but the situation seems to be falling into a deeper quagmire rather than ending.

The Korea Gas Corporation, which said it only learned about Lee Dae-sung’s FA registration on the 7th, the day of the FA’s disclosure, explained that it is difficult to bring in Lee Dae-sung, who has already completed the recruitment plan. However, Lee suddenly offered to join the team on the 20th, and Lee Dae-sung, who has already completed negotiations with Samsung, rejected the offer. In the process, the conflict deepened.

KGC negotiated with several players in the FA market. First, it chose Jung as its guard. It awarded 450 million won to Jung, who received 265 million won (222,000 dollars) in total compensation last season, expressing its commitment to strengthen its power. It was the “big man” who put more effort into it. KGC actively courted the big fish class A, but the deal fell through.

The next issue was the KGC’s attempt to recruit Lee Dae-sung late as the remaining “bullets” were left. “I told KGC that I would sign a contract with Samsung once I enter Korea,” Lee said. “We were discussing compensation issues between teams, but I got an offer a day before the deadline for self-negotiation. I was embarrassed.”

However, Lee Dae-sung also proceeded with the transfer process without giving KGC time to prepare. “I was not good enough to tell you about the FA application sooner. I am sorry,” he said. However, the apology was not accepted, and even the fiscal committee is being discussed. A KBL official said, “We are comprehensively examining whether it is appropriate for the fiscal committee’s agenda. We can open the meeting only when there is a violation of the regulations.”

Jeonbuk Clashes with Seoul in 33rd Round

The first Final B Since its Founding?… Jeonbuk Clashes with Seoul in 33rd Round, ‘Even a Draw is Dangerous’

If 7th place Jeonbuk loses to 5th place Seoul, it will be final B.

Key resources such as Baek Seung-ho, Song Min-gyu, and Park Jin-seop will face the burden of being called up for the Asian Games.

Is it 10 years of power?

A tradition that shines with the first 5 consecutive wins in professional soccer K-League 1 (2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021) and the most 9 wins (2009, 2011, 2014, 2015, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021) ‘Powerhouse’ Jeonbuk Hyundai is at the final crossroads of falling to Final B (7th to 12th place) for the first time since its founding. 메이저사이트

7th place Jeonbuk (46 points) will go on an expedition in the 33rd round of Hana One Q K League 1 2023 against 5th place FC Seoul (47 points) at Seoul World Cup Stadium at 3pm on the 8th.

This round 33 is the final game that separates Final A (1st to 6th place teams) from Final B.

However, the battle for rankings among mid-tier teams to determine Final A is a close race until the end.

The 1st to 4th ranked teams, Ulsan Hyundai (66 points), Pohang Steelers (58 points), Gwangju FC (51 points), and Daegu FC (48 points),

have confirmed Final A, while 5th place Seoul and 6th place Incheon United (47 points),

three teams up to 7th place Jeonbuk will compete in the fateful 33rd round for the last two spots.

All six games of round 33 will kick off at 3 p.m. on the 8th.

Among the three teams currently ranked 5th to 7th,

the most unfavorable matchup is Incheon. Incheon meets Ulsan, the ‘absolute top’.

Incheon and Ulsan played the second leg of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League group stage on the 3rd.

However, Incheon won a landslide victory (4-0) at home,

but Ulsan returned home after suffering a 0-1 defeat in Kawasaki, Japan, so Incheon has a good atmosphere.

In particular, Incheon is a team united with a strong survival instinct that becomes stronger in crisis situations.

I am confident that we were evenly matched against Ulsan this season with 1 win and 1 loss (0-1 loss, 2-1 win).

The game that fans are most interested in is the match between 5th place Seoul and 7th place Jeonbuk.

Jeonbuk will advance to Final B if it loses to Seoul in the 33rd round.

Even if Jeonbuk draws with Seoul, if Incheon secures a point against Ulsan, it will remain in Final B.

In addition, even if Incheon loses to Ulsan,

if Jeonbuk draws with Seoul without scoring, the points will be the same as Incheon,

but Final B will be confirmed due to losing the number of points.

Seoul is in a better situation than Jeonbuk as they can secure at least 6th place just by drawing.

In the end, the best way for Jeonbuk to prevent its first fall to Final B since its founding is to win the game against Seoul.

This season, Jeonbuk met Seoul twice and took the lead with 1 win and 1 draw (1-1 draw, 2-1 win).

The current situation in Jeonbuk is not very good.

Jeonbuk did not perform very well with 2 wins, 3 draws, and 3 losses in the 8 games played between August and September.

During the same period, Seoul was slightly ahead with 2 wins, 4 draws, and 2 losses.

Jeonbuk has to prepare for the Seoul game on the weekend after playing the second game of the ACL group stage away to Thailand on the 4th, and it is also burdensome that key offensive and defensive resources such as Baek Seung-ho, Song Min-gyu, and Park Jin-seop were called up to the Hangzhou Asian Games.

In order to reduce the movement of the players, Jeonbuk decided to stay in Incheon and prepare for the Seoul game rather than returning to Jeonju upon returning home.


Asian Games, Can Korea Regain Second Place Overall

Asian Games, Can Korea Regain Second Place Overall? Fierce Medal Competition with Japan

Korean archery, Japanese karate, etc. remain… Variables such as the final match at the end of the competition.

The 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games, which opened on September 23rd and will close on the 8th,

is heating up the competition for final medals.

As of the 3rd, Korea has won 32 gold medals, 42 silver medals, and 65 bronze medals,

ranking third in the medal rankings after Japan with 33 gold medals, 47 silver medals, and 50 bronze medals.

China, with over 160 gold medals, is an overwhelming leader. 안전놀이터

Medal rankings such as those in the Olympics or Asian Games are not the official rankings of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) or the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA),

and also do not fit the recent trend of ‘medal color is not important’.

However, since the official website of the recent Olympics and Asian Games includes a section on medal rankings,

and every media outlet does not report medal rankings,

it is difficult for participating countries to not pay any attention.

The Korea Sports Council also set a goal of winning 50 gold medals and ranking 3rd in the overall ranking ahead of the Hangzhou Asian Games.

However, in the previous competition, the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta and Palembang,

Japan pledged to close the gap where there were 75 gold medals and Korea had 49.

However, with only 4 days left until the closing of the competition,

the gap in gold medals with Japan is only 1,

so it is also natural that they are aiming to ‘retake second place overall’ 9 years after the 2014 Incheon Games.

First of all, Korea and Japan left one ‘medal box’ event in the remaining match schedule.

Korea is looking forward to archery, which will produce gold medals starting on the 4th,

while Japan is expected to have karate starting on the 5th, which will be a ‘medal field’.

In archery, Korea won 4 out of 8 gold medals in the 2018 competition,

and in karate, Japan also won 4 out of 12 gold medals in 2018.

There are 10 gold medals at stake in archery and 14 gold medals in karate at this competition.

In Korea’s case, in addition to archery, gold medals are expected in soft tennis, badminton, sport climbing, soccer, track and field, baseball, breaking, handball, and wrestling in the remaining schedules.

If we do well, it is expected that we will be able to reach the target of 50.

An official from the Japanese Olympic Committee said on the 4th,

“Japan has not set a goal of winning a few gold medals at this event.

Depending on the situation in each event,

second-level athletes participated in gymnastics and track and field,

and 1.5-level athletes also participated in wrestling.” explained.

The events in which the second-tier players came overlapped with other competition schedules, such as the World Championships,

while the first-tier players participated in other events, such as swimming, table tennis, and badminton.

When asked to predict the sports with the potential for gold medals in the remaining schedule he responded,

“Artistic swimming, badminton, archery, wrestling, karate, men’s and women’s soccer, women’s volleyball, baseball, breaking, handball, hockey, soft tennis, etc.”

In the women’s individual event, they are in the finals.

On this day, Korea gave up a one-point lead to India,

where So Chae-won scored 9 points with her first shot in the first end and hit all 4 shots for 10 points.

Joo Jae-hoon and So Chae-won scored 10 points on all four shots in the third end to tie the score at 119-119.

Angel Smart Table Updated With New Baccarat Side Vets

Angel Macau Inc said in an update to GGRAsia that its new side betting options for baccarat play are compatible with “Angel Eye Complete,” a “smart table” product from casino equipment supplier Angel Group placed in the Macau market.

The new baccarat side bet is known as ‘Small 6/Big 6’, which is a variation of the ‘Lucky Six’ that is prevalent in casinos in Macau. If the winning ‘banker’ with a face value of 6 consists of two cards, the new side bet option, ‘Small 6/Big 6’, pays a fee of 22:1. The side bet pays the winning ‘banker’ with a face value of 6 with a fee of 50:1, which consists of three cards.

GGRAsia has contacted Macau casino regulator Game Inspection Coordination Bureau for comment on the new baccarat side betting options. It has not heard back until this story has been posted online.

As outlined, the side betting options have received regulatory approval in Macau, Angel Macau Chairman Asuka Kurahashi confirmed to GGRAsia.

Mr Curahashi said the mechanical process of updating Angel smart table products with new side betting options can be achieved “immediately” on its own.

Referring to the key features of “Angel Eye Complete,” President Angel Macau said, “Before approving this new side bet, Angel has already developed software to accommodate this new side bet, which should not take much time. First of all, when it comes to actual launches…It’s just installing new software on related devices.”

If you update your smart gaming table with “Small 6/Big 6,” you don’t need to change the angle of the gaming action monotoring camera placed at the other end of the table because the camera can capture the entire betting area of the gaming table, she added.

Before the freshly approved side bet “Small 6/Big 6”, the game table with “Angel Eye Complete” in Macau was already compatible with other baccarat side bet options known as “insurance bet”.

Macau had more than 600,000 visitors during the five-day labor shutdown

Macau averaged over 120,000 visitors a day during this year’s Labor Day holiday, according to data from the Public Security Police. A total of 604,395 visitors entered Macau between May 1 and May 5, including the Labor Day holiday in mainland China, Macau’s main tourism supply market.

The daily tally for the period was nearly 8% below the 130,000 daily visitors forecast weeks before the holiday by the Macau government’s tourism agency.

Friday was 154,006, the highest single-day tally for five days. The holiday Saturday was accompanied by thunderstorms and heavy rain in the mainland Guangdong province, which borders Macau.

The police data does not include source market analysis for inbound visitors.

However, they show that the border crossing between Macau and Zhuhai, Guangdong Province, which is the closest province, was the busiest. The border crossing handled a total of 261,805 visitors during the five days.

The second busiest border checkpoint is the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao bridge crossing, with a total of 106,499 visitors arriving during the same period.

GGRAsia confirmed the hotel’s own booking site and said that almost a week before the Labor Day holiday season, some luxury hotels at Macau casino resorts already don’t have rooms available for that night.

A local GGRA inspection on May 2 saw many tourists in downtown Macau and the new Kotai casino district, as well as some of the city’s main casino floors.

The most common minimum bets on baccarat tables ranged from HK$1,000 ($128) to HK$1,500. The new “Small 6/Big 6” baccarat side bets were also used in the Macau market.

JP Morgan said in a recent note that the Macau casino market’s Labor Day holiday period this year is likely to generate daily gross gaming revenue (GGR) between MOP 800 million and MOP 850 million. “This represents a GGR recovery of approximately 75% versus Golden Week in May 2019, representing a 110 to 120% recovery of stable bulk GGR from recent trends,” the investment bank said.
