Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment has announced the opening of its office in Tomakomai, Hokkaido, where it is one of several international IR operators hoping to build a regional IR.
The facility, dubbed the “Inspire Hokkaido Tomakomai Office,” is located in the Asahimachi district of the city, and it will serve at the forefront of the company’s efforts to build relationships with the local community.
Several other operators already maintain similar offices in Tomakomai, including Hard Rock and Rush Street.
While the Hokkaido prefectural government has yet to make any firm decision about whether or not to support an IR bid, Tomakomai has long proven to be among the most anticipated regional candidate locations for international IR operators.
Singapore police have busted at least two illegal gambling operations in the past week, while across Asia authorities have moved to stamp out illicit activities, from raids on premier league matches in India, to illegal number forecasting in Malaysia.
