New Resort to Open this Month – Manila Bay
Solaire Resort and Casino, the first of 4 casinos to be erected in Manila Bay, will be opening its doors to patrons this March 16.
The resort’s causing much excitement, with hopes that it’ll be the start of a tourism boom in the country. Some are even predicting that these resorts could match, if not beat Las Vegas when it comes to revenues.
While casinos are frowned by critics due to social problems it allegedly creates, it’s still seen as a great venture due to the number of jobs and investment they bring. OFWs working for casinos abroad are now being lured to go home due to better opportunities offered by local businesses.
But the biggest winner here could be port magnate Enrique Razon, with stocks of Bloomberry (the resort company he owns) spiking days before the much-awaited opening.
