According to the Japanese Wakayama Prefecture, by the end of April 2021, a decision will be made public on the selected investor for the construction of a casino resort in the administrative center. Its opening is expected by 2025. Recall that by the final date for the submission of applications – January 15, 2021, two candidates have been determined. Initially, the decision was planned to be made and announced in early April, but the commission of nine experts will need a little more time to determine the winner. Both candidates are known – they are Clairvest Neem Ventures from Tokyo and Suncity Group Holdings Japan Co Ltd. Representatives of the development and promotion department of Wakayama Casino Resort are looking forward to a new investor and look forward to fruitful cooperation with him. Earlier, Yoshinobu Nisaka, Governor of Wakayama Prefecture, explained the delay in the decision and construction of the situation in the country and in the world due to the COVID-19 virus pandemic. As My Lucky Story already reported, in early March 2021, the Nagasaki authorities accepted applications from five companies to open a gambling complex, and on March 11, the winner of the competition became known, from which the prefecture will receive 322,000 US dollars even before construction begins.
