One year has passed since the launch of the C2 Limassol “temporary casino” and the first satellite casinos C2 Nicosia and C2 Larnaca by Melco Resorts and Entertainment Limited (Melco), one of the world’s largest integrated resort operators that was granted an exclusive 15-year license to operate the first and only authorised casinos in the Republic of Cyprus.
The Chairman and CEO of Melco Group, Lawrence Ho has expressed his excitement with the successful first year of operations on the island. During a conference held to commemorate the anniversary, the public was informed that C2 will be welcoming its one millionth visit in August 2019.
Big plans ahead for Melco and Cyprus as two more satellite casinos will open soon – one in Ayia Napa, one in Paphos – and the City of Dreams Mediterranean Integrated Casino Resort (ICR) in Limassol which is scheduled to open in late 2021.
“Everything is in place for significant and sustainable growth here in Cyprus. The government has a clearly-defined vision, the community is supporting us, and the success of the satellite and pop-up casinos we’ve already opened are evidence of strong consumer demand,” Ho said.
In collaboration with the Department of Antiquities in Archaeological Heritage Management, Melco also announced a unique Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative that will support on a long-term basis the government’s efforts to sustainably preserve and promote the culture of Cyprus.
