Suncity Group to acquire casinos in Asia

Suncity Group Holdings Ltd., a Hong Kong-based investment holding company is planning to expand its business further in Asia. It plans to diversify its business that would take it from being the biggest gaming promoter to becoming a “pure gaming” by 2020.

The company is actively looking for acquiring casinos in other Asian countries such as South Korea, the Philippines, and Myanmar. It is looking for casinos in Russia as well.

The company is also looking for ways on how to inject its present business model into its future casino ventures, according to Suncity Executive Director Andrew Lo Kai Bong.

In its 2017 annual report, Suncity presented ongoing projects such as property developments in Shenzhen, part of China’s Guangdong province, and in Anhui province. Suncity also announced plans for another property development in Liaoning province.

Suncity reiterated its commitment to manage a casino resort at Van Don in Vietnam on behalf of third-party investors. But Suncity announced late last month that it had deferred the completion of its acquisition of a 34 per cent share in the Hoiana project.

Suncity originally planned to close the HK$600-million (US$76.8-million) Hoiana deal last May 31st but moved the payment deadline to July 31.

Lo attributed the delay to procedures that needed to be completed regarding Hoiana’s phase one land plot.

“It is a vast piece of land of 163 hectares [403 acres], which takes time for the process of obtaining the land certificates for it. But now this process is soon to be over,” Lo said, according to the news outlet.

In 2015, Suncity entered into a co-operation with Chow Tai Fook Group subsidiary Golden Yield Enterprise (GYE) and Vietnam-based Vinacapital to develop the $4 billion integrated resort project in the central province of Quang Nam.

Hoiana’s first phase will include a 445-room hotel, 220 residential apartments operated by Hong Kong’s New World Hotels, a luxury Rosewood resort offering 75 villas and 25 residences, a golf course and a casino.

Gaming analysts noted that Suncity’s transition from an agency to principal model made sense, especially in light of strong VIP trends in Macau and regionally. The only downside that gaming analysts saw was that its transition brought with it risks to Macau, where other casino operators may not wish to employ a junket operated by a direct rival.

Bryke, the video slots brand of Zitro, the famous  Luxemburg-based gaming company, has launched its highly successful flagship product in Spain: Link King, a unique and innovative type of game that is not like any other games available in Spain.

In addition, prizes are linked between terminals, raising their value and the player’s excitement. Spanish players can enjoy a different way of playing never before seen in Spain and already present in the best casinos in the world.

The staging of LINK KING is impressive thanks to the new FUSION cabinet that stands out due to its advanced technology and “Ultra Slim” design, occupying less space than any other piece on the market and offering the player greater comfort.

The combination of LINK KING and FUSION will transform Spanish lounges into a game show that will appeal to both the operator and player, just like what’s happening in international markets.

RTG launched a new game, called I, ZombieReading Time: 1 minute

 

RTG Asia, the Philippines-based gaming company, has launched a new game called I, Zombie, which is a five-reel, 25 line game. It features Amy, a gorgeous zombie killer.

“The zombie epidemic continues, but now it’s taken a personal toll: Nancy has turned! Her beautiful blue eyes have gone red, her carefully manicured nails have grown into claw-like things. She might be the WORST kind of zombie — still so sexy, so attractive, so deadly. You have to see her! And, as in life, so WILD. And she is your WILD too. You may even see two more her appear and they’ll jump across the reels… not to kill you but to help you win more,” – commented RTG Asia.

“Maybe if she could see herself in the mirror she could change back… would that help? Could that help? It’ll certainly help YOU: when you get three mirrors – the game’s scatter – you get free spins. Get four mirrors and your free spin prize doubles. Five mirrors, it trebles,” it concludes.

William Hill US seeks modifications in regulationsReading Time: 1 minute

 

William Hill US has written a letter to the Nevada Gaming Control Board (NGCB) seeking modifications in current regulations so as to eliminate some technical glitches. This is after FanDuel paid out on an erroneous ticket that allowed the ticket holder to win US$82k in New Jersey.

It is learnt that William Hill US mainly asked the power for the Chair to use discretion in rescinding bets where an obvious error had occurred, such as wrong pricing. “This would address the situation that occurred recently in New Jersey where an operator issued a wager on a football game at a price that was obviously incorrect,” reads the letter.

Sylvia Tiscareno, general counsel of William Hill, testified during NGCB’s meeting this week and said that the request comes after several internal discussions. The panel at the meeting decided to consider the testimony before making a decision.
