The Ayia Napa satellite casino is having its grand opening on Wednesday right in the heart of the resort town.

According to InBusinessNews, Ayia Napa mayor Yiannis Karousos officiated over the opening ceremony on Wednesday, two weeks after operations started on July 15.

Foreign reports also said Melco completed on Wednesday its acquisition of a 75% stake in ICR Cyprus from parent company Melco International

Local experts anticipate that the location of the casino, on a main road and next to Faros Hotel, will boost tourism and the local area in general. About 45 people are said to be employed at the C2 Ayia Napa.

Satellite casinos operate permanently in Nicosia, Larnaca, and Famagusta, as well as soon in Paphos, under a license awarded to Melco Resorts & Entertainment as Melco-CNS Consortium, while a temporary location in Limassol under the same operator will be replaced by the City of Dreams Mediterranean Integrated Casino Resort (ICR), scheduled to open in the southern town in late 2021.

Foreign reports also said Melco Resorts & Entertainment completed on Wednesday its acquisition of a 75% stake in ICR Cyprus from parent company Melco International Development Limited, bringing Melco International’s stake in Melco Resorts at just over 55%.
