Kagwon Casino the Largest casino in South Korea ready to reopen to the public after a nearly 11-week pandemic-related shutdown.
Kangwon casino, the only South Korea casino in which local residents are allowed to gamble, announced that it would reopen some of its offering to the public as of noon on Friday, May 8. That’s three days earlier than the company forecast late last month, when it issued the property’s seventh shutdown extension order.
Kangwon Casino shut its doors on February 23 to minimize further spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. Its two main foreigner-only casino rivals – Grand Korea Leisure and Paradise Co Ltd – followed suit one month later. Paradise restarted its operations in April, while GKL announced its resumption of activity just this week.
With South Korea’s COVID-19 new infection rate having slowed to a trickle, Kangwon Land apparently feels it’s time to get back to earning. The company announced earlier this week that its lost revenue opportunity would likely total KRW286.8b (US$233.7m), based on 2019’s average daily revenue, but now says that the three-day advance opening will likely reduce this to KRW267.8b.
It’s not like Kangwon land’s rivals have gotten off much easier. Despite being first out of the reopening gate, Paradise said Thursday that its April gaming revenue totaled just KRW7.93b ($6.5m), down 86% year-on-year and off 57.8% from March 2020.
