South Korea – Kangwon Land, a South Korean casino and resort company based in Gangwon Province, South Korea, has announced that it has extended its closure by at least one more week as the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic continues to spread.
Although the curve of the virus has flattened, the casino establishment has stated that it will not re-open, but instead remain closed until at least the 11th May 2020.
The closure applies to the venues facilities, including: hotel, casino, water park and ski resort.
Kangwon Land has been closed since February 2020 with lost revenue reportedly in the region of three-hundred million dollars.
Kangwon Land operates a number of game tables and slot machines for domestic and international customers under its gaming licenses.
However, tourism numbers have fallen in the midst of the crisis as a number of business closures and travel restrictions remain in place.
Kangwon Land Casino is located at the foot of High1 Ski and Golf Resort in Sapuk-eup, Jeongseongun, South Korea. It is the largest casino in the country and accounts for about half of the total gambling revenue annually.
The closure extension news comes less than 24 hours after officials in South Korea announced that there were no new domestic cases of Coronavirus in the country for the first time since February 2020.
