Casino Legal Singapore's casinos remain closed April 22, 2020 By Violeta Prockyte Singapore casinos will remain closed until 1 June. The decision follows the announcement of Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, who has prolonged the country's lockdown until the beginning of summer due to a high spike in new COVID-19 cases. Marina Bay Sands and Resorts World Sentosa have been closed since 7 April and were supposed to open their doors on 5 May. However, due to the spread of COVID-19 infection, both casinos announced they will remain in line with regulations. Singapore’s Casino Regulatory Authority considers casinos to be non-essential and their operations will be limited. Marina Bay Sands is ready to refund guests who have booked their hotel from 7 April to 1 June. Additionally, Sands has suspended itsdividend program to strengthen its balance. The decision should also help pay furloughed staff. Similarly, Resorts World Sentosa has restricted activities, with its website offering this explanation: “In view of the extension of the circuit breaker period, Resorts World Sentosa will temporarily suspend all guest offerings.” Meanwhile, Genting is planning a mass salary cut for the first time in its history.
