Hong Kong-listed Imperial Pacific International Holdings Ltd says its temporary casino on the Pacific island of Saipan generated VIP rolling of about US$2.26 billion in January.
The firm’s Tuesday filing said the number had not yet been audited. The document added that the company would in future announce on the second day of each month the unaudited VIP table games rolling for the previous month.
VIP gaming operations at Imperial Pacific’s temporary casino started on November 1. In the three months to January 31, the temporary casino generated VIP rolling of approximately US$5.33 billion, according to separate filings from Imperial Pacific.
The firm had previously said that it expects to start collaboration with junket operators “from December 2015 onwards”.
The temporary Saipan casino property had a soft opening on July 26. At that time it had 10 gaming tables in operation, according to comments to local media by a senior manager at Best Sunshine International Ltd, a unit of Imperial Pacific that runs the Saipan casino operation.
On November 27, the property – located on the largest island of the U.S. Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (pictured) – officially opened. As of that date it had 600 employees and about 45 gaming tables and 106 electronic gaming machines, said the management.
