The new Cyprus casinos have welcomed their millionth visitor in August after just one year in operation.
The success of the Cyprus casinos run by operator Melco Resorts is expected to hugely boost tourism on the Mediterranean island, also attracting overseas property investors looking to benefit from the increased footfall.
The success achieved with the first 3 satellite casinos installed in the Cypriot cities of Limassol (with more than 800,000 visitors), Nicosia (more than 150,000 visitors) and Larnaca (over 50,000 visitors), has raised the company’s prospects to open another two satellite casinos in Ayia Napa and Paphos.
Oana Georgiana Luca, the lucky millionth visitor who visited C2 Limassol was rewarded with jewellery worth €5000 under the patronage of Michalis Diamond Gallery and an elegant complimentary dinner for four people at the refined Columbia Bistro in C2 Limassol.
Melco Resorts CEO Lawrence Ho commented: ‘I am extremely happy with our first year of operations here in Cyprus, progress has been rapid, and the local economy is already benefiting from the strong partnership we have created with the CNS Group.’
Craig Ballantyne, president of property of City of Dreams Mediterranean and Cyprus Casinos, commented: ‘After the recent launch of our third satellite casino C2 Ayia Napa and the next launch of C2 Paphos, the casinos of Cyprus will attract even more visitors from Cyprus and abroad and improve the entertainment offerings in those cities.’
With the further two Cyprus casinos in Ayia Napa and Paphos, the City Dreams Mediterranean project will be fully completed in 2021 and offer visitors other attractions and greater entertainment options besides games, with the aim of empowering Cyprus as one of the most important tourist destinations in the regional and global scope.
Overseas property investors looking to benefit from the increased tourism generated by the Cyprus Casinos project, in addition to the idyllic lifestyle on Cyprus, may want to get moving.
