Melco International Development has confirmed that three of its satellite casinos in Cyprus are scheduled to begin operations in Nicosia, Larnaca, and Paphos later this year.

Another satellite casino in Ayia Napa will open “in the spring of 2019”, the Hong Kong-listed company said in its interim report on 19 September.

Back in July, Melco International stated that the Cyprus-based consortium headed by the firm would also open a satellite casino in the terminal building of Larnaka International Airport. This property will host approximately 50 gaming machines.

The first fully licensed casino in Cyprus, C2 in Limassol, officially opened its doors in late September, following a soft launch back in June.

“Cyprus Casinos C2 has already started attracting a substantial number of tourists to favourable acclaim,” said Craig Ballantyne, property president of City of Dreams Mediterranean and Cyprus Casinos C2.

“We are optimistic that when City of Dreams Mediterranean Integrated Resort is launched in 2021, Cyprus will emerge as a leading global destination for leisure and business tourism.”
