Singapore – The Singapore government on Saturday has granted the licence for the city-state’s first legal casino, giving gamblers the opportunity to chance their luck after lifting a 40-year-old ban on gaming.

The Casino Regulatory Authority said in a brief statement posted on its website that it ‘has issued a casino licence to Resorts World Sentosa,’ one of Singapore’s two multibillion-dollar casino resorts.

Resort spokesman Robin Goh said that the casino was ‘on track for its opening.’

However, he declined to comment on whether the casino would start operation before the lucrative Chinese New Year holiday in mid-February.

Its rival, the Marina Bay Sands, three 55-storey towers located close to the financial district, is still under construction and slated to open not earlier than in mid-April.
