(South Korea).- Genting Hong Kong has officially opened its first casino on the South Korean island of Jeju. “The opening of Genting Jeju Casino marks a big step forward on the company’s development of integrated resort and tourism properties in the global markets,” said Yang Zhihui, chairman of Landing International.

Genting and Landing hold 50/50 stakes.

“As one of the most striking landmarks in Jeju, Genting Jeju Casino is expected to drive tourism and retail growth in the city, further enhancing Jeju’s leading position in Korea’s tourism [industry].”

Located at the Hyatt Regency Jeju Hotel, Genting Jeju Casino includes 29 gaming tables and 16 slot machines. It forms part of the Hyatt Regency Jeju – a hotel that offers 223 rooms and suites, F&B, and leisure facilities, overlooking the East China Sea.

The hotel and casino are expected to be popular with Chinese guests, as Jeju offers a visa-free policy for mainland tourists.

“At Genting Hong Kong, we remain committed in taking an active role to contribute towards the development of Jeju’s tourism industry. With our newly launched land-based attraction and experienced cruise operations via Star Cruises, we will continue to share our international expertise in leisure and entertainment to further support and enhance the overall domestic tourism industry here on Jeju Island,” said Jeffrey Teoh, Genting HK’s executive vice president of casino marketing & CEO of Genting Jeju.
