India’s Largest Integrated Casino Resort To Open In Daman


India’s largest integrated casino resort in Daman, spread over 10 acres with 60,000 square feet gaming space, is likely to become operational from early next year.

Delta Corp’s hotel in Daman, which is India’s largest integrated casino resort, is expected to become operational in early 2014, Jaydev Modi, chairman, Delta Corp Limited, told reporters here yesterday.

The 187-room property will open up new markets for Delta Corp since it is near Mumbai and within convenient distance from the key cities in Gujarat, he said. This would be first land-based casino in Daman. The company has a major stake in the offshore casino business in Goa, as it owns three off shore casino vessels.

Modi said that Daman hotel is ready and waiting for the final formalities to be completed, after which it can be unveiled.

He stated that the group aims to make its presence felt in places like Sikkim and across the border in Nepal and Sri Lanka.

“We have already acquired property for the casino resort in Sri Lanka, and the company is exploring the emerging Sri Lankan gaming market, which his poised for rapid growth,” he said.

Modi said that with the end of 25-year civil war in May 2009, tourism in Sri Lanka has experienced rapid growth over the past two years, with tourist arrivals increasing every month on a year to year basis.

“Indian visitors make up the largest percentage of total visitors to Sri Lanka, accounting for 28 percent of total Sri Lanka tourists,” he added.
