Club C, at Kanoa Resort (pictured) in Chalan Kanoa, launched six months after the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, a U.S. Pacific territory, passed a law to regulate e-gaming.
Ben Lee, chief executive of the new club’s operator, Strategic Gaming Solutions Inc, is a familiar face to Asian casino industry people from his work as an advisory panel member for the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) Asia conference in Macau.
