S. Korea Paradise Co. to reopen Jeju casinos to close other operations

Paradise Inc., one of the Korean operators operating foreigner-only casinos in the country, has reopened its casinos on Jeju Island, it said in a filing on Monday. The company added that it has extended operations at three other game venues until April 20 in line with South Korea’s efforts to curb the further spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Various gaming venues in Paradise have been suspended since March 24.

Paradise said in a recent filing with the Korea Exchange that it was extending the suspension of three casino locations – Seoul, Incheon and Busan – until 6 a.m. on April 20. Paradise stressed that hotel operations were still “open.”

Paradise Casino Jeju Grand (file photo) reopened on Monday (April 13) at 6 a.m., the company said.

Grand Korea Leisure Inc., an affiliate of the Korea Tourism Organization, another foreigner-only casino operator, has already announced last week that it will suspend operations of its casinos until April 20.

Grand Korea Leisure operates three foreigner-only casinos in Korea under the ‘Seven Luck’ brand.

The decision by foreign-only casino operators is said to be in line with the country’s efforts to push for “social distancing” measures to stem the outbreak of the novel coronavirus linked to COVID-19.

Kangwon Land, the promoter of Kangwon Land, Korea’s only casino resort where domestic gambling is allowed, closed its gaming facilities from Feb. 23. On Apr. 3, it announced that it has extended the temporary closure of its gaming venues again. It now says that it will reopen at 6 a.m. on Apr. 20.
