Arabian Business : Ras Al Khaimah dit de respecter « la culture et les normes sociétales » alors que l’opérateur de casino prévoit ses débuts

Zone de jeu incluse dans le nouveau projet Wynn Resorts alors que Ras Al Khaimah ouvre potentiellement la voie au jeu.

Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority (RAKTDA) said on Wednesday that “culture and societal norms” will be taken into considered as casino operator Wynn plans a massive new resort with gaming facilities.

Wynn Resorts is scheduled to open the luxury resort on Al Marjan Island in 2026 which will feature a “gaming area”, potentially paving the way for gambling to be allowed in the emirate.

Dubai, traditionally the most liberal emirate in the UAE, in April denied rumours it was granting gambling licences. Casino and hotel operator Caesars in 2018 opened a resort on Dubai’s Bluewaters Island – its first non-gambling project.

A spokesperson for RAKTDA told Arabian Business: “The gaming facility is currently in the design phase and will be purposely built on the guidelines of The Department of Entertainment and Gaming Regulation, taking into consideration culture and societal norms.

“It will be a modern facility with games designed specifically based on the preferences of the visitors.”

The tourism project was unveiled on the same day that RAKTDA announced the creation of a new Department of Entertainment and Gaming Regulation to regulate “integrated resorts”. LINK TO ARTICLE
