Resorts World resumes gaming operations


TRAVELLERS International Hotel Group, Inc. announced on Thursday the gaming areas which were not affected by the recent shooting incident at Resorts World Manila, have commenced operations today (June 29).

This after the company said it received a letter from the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. (Pagcor) lifting the June 9, 2017 suspension of the company’s provisional license.

The letter noted that Travellers has taken action to address the issues in its safety and security procedures as well as the welfare of at least 6,000 workforce of the company and their families whose livelihood are affected by the suspension.

“In line with this, the company is happy to announce that the gaming areas not affected by the June 2 incident will commence operations today (Thursday),” Travellers told the Philippine Stock Exchange.

It can be remembered that on June 2, a lone gunman identified as Jessie Carlos, 42, former government employee, barged into Resorts World Manila firing shots and setting tables ablaze.

The incident left 37 persons killed, with dozen others injured.
