City of Dreams Manila soft opening on Dec 14
The $1.13 billion integrated casino and resort project is scheduled for a grand opening before Chinese New Year 2015

MANILA, Philippines – City of Dreams Manila, a $1.13-billion integrated casino and resort project, will have a soft opening on Sunday, December 14.

In a disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE), Melco Crown Philippines Corporation said it received a Notice to Commence Casino Operations from state-owned Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) for City of Dreams Manila.

City of Dreams Manila will be the second integrated casino and resort situated to open in government-sponsored Entertainment City, in Parañaque.

The grand opening is planned before the Chinese New Year in 2015, Melco said.

City of Dreams Manila vice president Charisse Chuidian said in an email message that doors will open to the public at 3 pm on Sunday.

To be open to the public are the mass gaming areas, CenterPlay, a live performance lounge inside the casino, Nobu restaurant and tea lounge, Hyatt Hotel, and select food and beverage and retail establishments.

City of Dreams Manila was patterned after City of Dreams Macau, the flagship project of Melco Crown Entertainment in the gaming hub of Asia.

The casino and resort project will have 6 hotel towers, including the 260-room Crown Towers hotel, the 321-room Nobu Hotel Manila and Hyatt Hotel,  and numerous restaurants, bars, gaming facilities, and a multi-level car park.

It will also have 3 distinct entertainment venues, including Manila’s first family entertainment center; a live performance central lounge inside the casino and  night club situated at the “fortune egg,” a dome-like structure serving as a centerpiece of the whole complex.

The complex is located on an approximately 6.2-hectare site at the gateway to Entertainment City. It will have a gaming space, VIP and mass-market gaming facilities with up to approximately 365 gaming tables, 1,680 slot machines, and 1,680 electronic table games upon opening.

The casino and resort development hopes to attract high rollers from China, Hong Kong, Macau, and other neighboring countries.

Entertainment City is a 120-hectare development of PAGCOR and primed to be an integrated resort and gaming hub that will compete with Las Vegas, Macau, and Singapore. –
