The operator supporting Connecticut’s large Foxwoods Resort Casino has reportedly revealed that it is hoping to win the right to construct and run among a trio of incorporated casino hotels that could begin appearing across Japan as early as 2021.
According to a report from Asia Gaming Short , the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation has its hopes set on attracting in a Las Vegas-style gaming development complete with a casino alongside other amenities like hotels, stores and conference centers into the small Hokkaido port city of Tomakomai.
Rappaport was stated to have been directing its Japanese effort .
Asia Gaming Brief reported that local firm Gaming Capital Management Incorporated subsequently began handling the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation’s Japanese attempts on a casual basis while Tribal Chairman Rodney Butler stepped in to fulfill Rappaport’s shoes as Interim President and Chief Executive Officer for the aboriginal entity’s Connecticut operations.
Mike Tanji, Chairman for Tokyo-headquartered Gaming Capital Management Incorporated reportedly told Asia Gaming Brief that the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation plans to set a Japanese presence in the not too distant future and is considering building and managing a small regional integrated casino resort in Tomakomai.
The executive reported declared that the city of 174,000 sits atop the operator’s wish list since it ‘is rather close to Connecticut’ in regard to the immediate physical surroundings and local political atmosphere. He also allegedly said that the plan to open a bigger gaming facility in a largely rural location will become more attractive to the central government, which will be hoping such places will help regional economies to develop so as to make a more diverse culture.
If Tomakomai prove to be a non-runner, Tanji reportedly detailed that the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation may take a look at the potential for bringing an integrated casino resort to the bigger southern city of Nagasaki. But, he purportedly cautioned that the two of these programs are far from a sure thing using the operator also thought to have concerns about some of the particular requirements possibly set to be contained as a member of the legalizing Integrated Resort Implementation Bill.
