Golden Globe to operate sixth Goa casino

Golden Globe Hotels, owned by politician Gopal Kanda, plans to begin operating a sixth offshore casino in Goa, taking on the Maharajah casino on a six-month lease.

The High Court of Bombay at Goa has asked the State government to allot the firm a jetty with the State government assuring to issue necessary orders within a week, local media reports.

The Essel Group’s Maharajah casino, aboard the MV San Domino, entered the waters of the Mandovi on February 17, 2009. However, it has remained unused since then.

Golden Globe had originally planned to operate on a boat known as the Lucky 7, however that vessel broke free of its mooring and ran aground in July. It has since been towed and is undergoing repairs in Chennai.
