Packer to invest 15b in philippine casino venture; CEO says will spend $7bn in $50bn casino
Philippines' $13.5 billion tourism and gambling industry had one major winner last year with the opening of the world's 에스엠 카지노largest casino, Manila Pacific's $13.5bn Paddy Power project in the northern city of Makati, worth about $7bn.
The Venetian resort, which opened last September, promises to lure millions of anglophones from around the world for its six-day opening weekend of September 1.
And the casino will also employ some 2,000 employees, including 1,200 in Manila.

The casino was designed by renowned architect JW Brown and is a joint venture between the private sector investment firm Blackstone Group and local construction and investment firm Pampanga.

Paddy Power will feature a retractable roof that opens up when casino guests can step out of the water – it can hold up to 200 guests at a time.
The casino will open the same day as the opening of the new Tokyo-to-Shanghai round-trips, which is the first of seven such round-trips to be run at Manila's Tambora Airport from September 15 to September 20, 2016, says an operator.
The Paddy Power venture is also the largest in the Philippines with 3,300 rooms and 500 suites and will feature a retractable roof.
According to the company website, a guest can step out of water at the Paddy Power Resort while on the floor of the casino, but if they lose touch they are transported back in water to the resort's pool for rest and rejuvenation.
When casino-goers have a good time with their day out on the water, they are treated to music, food and beverages.
