(Updated)Resorts World Genting's two casinos temporarily shut

KUALA LUMPUR: Resorts World Genting has clarified that the closure of two of its three casinos in Genting Highlands is temporary, and done to upgrade its facilities.

"In our ongoing effort to improve our operational efficiency and enhance the gaming and entertainment experience for our guests, we continuously upgrade our facilities. This will involve temporarily closing certain sections of our casino to facilitate the improvements," Resorts World Genting said in a notice on its website.

It added that its gaming operations continue to operate as usual.  

The closure affects Genting Casino 1 (Circus Palace) and Genting Casino 2 (Hollywood). 

SkyCasino is operating as per normal. An earlier announcement by the company on its website stated that the two casinos were closed effective Feb 28, 2024.

It did not specify the reason behind the closure of the two older casinos. 

According to a report from Oriental Daily, fewer people were visiting the 'older' casinos after the pandemic, with more guests preferring the SkyCasino's flashy atmosphere.  

It said the International Room, once bustling in these older zones, has also seen significantly fewer visitors, prompting a shift to focus on accommodating patrons at the newer gaming establishment.
