Paradise Co praises local expats for the increase in casino sales for October which amounted to KRW22.36 billion
Paradise Co, the South Korean foreign-only casino operator, recorded casino sales of KRW22.36 billion in October. This is an increase of 9% from September but still a decrease of 72.2% for the same period in 2019. Local expats are credited for this rise due to border closures around the world.
The pandemic continued to have a negative impact on casinos in South Korea, due to global border closures, with table games recording sales of KRW20.41 billion ($18 million) - a downfall of 73.4% - while slot machines were down 50.4% amounting to KRW1.80billion ($1.6 million).
Although casino sales increased in October when compared to September, table drop actually fell by 7.7% to KRW125.54 billion ($110.6million) which indicates that good luck played a massive part in providing this reported increase.
Paradise City, the company’s integrated resort project in Incheon, also shut down in early September after staff members tested positive for COVID-19, although the casino and some non-gaming amenities were open again within days.
Through the first 10 months of 2020, Paradise Co’s casino sales are down 56.3% to KRW283.30 billion (US$249.7 million).
