India’s leading gaming operator Delta Corp has revealed plans to develop an integrated resort in the coastal state of Goa after receiving in-principal approval from the local tourism authority.
In an announcement, Delta Corp said had received the initial approval from the Goa Investment Promotion and Facilitation Board to establish an integrated resort consisting of hotels, convention center, multiplex cinema, retail area, electronic casino, water park and other facilities at Pernem, located in the state’s north.
“The integrated resort is expected to be one of its kind in the country,” the company said. “The project is expected to boost tourism, employment and infrastructure of the state of Goa.”
Delta Corp, which operates three floating casinos on Goa’s Mandovi River plus three land-based casinos in Goa and Sikkim, is the only casino firm in India to be listed on the National Stock Exchange of India.
It also owns India’s most popular online poker and rummy site, Adda52, and early this year opened a casino at the Marriott Hotel in Kathmandu, Nepal.
