DICJ: No table application for Morpheus yet

135

Local gaming operator Melco Resorts & Entertainment has not yet applied for gaming tables for the fourth tower of the City of Dreams complex – Morpheus – according to a response to Business Daily enquiries from the Gaming Inspection and Co-ordination Bureau (DICJ).
‘Melco has not applied for any gaming tables at Morpheus with the DICJ yet,’ notes the response, while another response from Melco says: ’The relevant applications will be sought at the appropriate time.’
Melco told Business Daily that although not submitting the paperwork yet the operator ‘would have the capability to operate 50-plus tables at Morpheus’ and that they are ‘targeting the first half of 2018 for the grand opening.’
Since the construction work on the fourth tower resumed on July 28, following an accident mid-July resulting in the death of a worker and serious injury of another, Melco states: ‘We don’t anticipate any delays’ in the project . . . [and] . . . are incredibly excited about the opening of Morpheus’.
