Korea's Largest Casino Opens - Tuesday 7th of February 2006

SOUTH KOREA As reported by the Korea Herald: "High rollers and cautious gamblers alike can now try their luck at the country's biggest foreigners-only casino which opened last weekend in Seoul.

"Not far from the major hotels near COEX, Samseong-dong, the sound of clinking gambling chips, the twirl of the roulette wheel and jingles from row upon row of slot machines fill the two-story casino.

"At Seven Luck Casino, you can experience the thrill of winning or the hollow feeling of losing.

"…This 24-hour, 365-day casino is spacious, but not too big for it to seem impersonal - there is enough space for 400 gamers at one time. The venue has 103 slot machines, 116 video games and more than 80 tables for baccarat, black jack, roulette and poker, but serious poker and blackjack players may be disappointed.

"Most of the gamers are Asian tourists - during the week, the clientele are mostly Japanese or Chinese tourists staying at the nearby hotels for COEX conventions.

"…The Grand Leisure Korea Corp. is planning to open more branches in Korea: the second at the Millennium Seoul Hilton Hotel in May and the third at the Busan Lotte Hotel in June…"
