The remainder of the resort facilities are planned to be opened by mid-2024.

Mohegan Inspire Entertainment Resort, located in Incheon, South Korea, is set to open a premium international visitor-only casino. 

The Korean Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism granted Mohegan Inspire the license for the casino on January 23, which is set to open on February 3. The license for the international visitor-only casino is the first awarded of its kind in 19 years. 

Within the casino there are set to be 150 gaming tables, 390 slot machines and a 160-seat electronic table games (ETG) stadium across two floors.  

Mohegan Inspire President, Chen Si, said: "I am thrilled that Mohegan Inspire has successfully carried out this phase of development over the past seven years and has obtained a permit for an international visitor-only casino business license. 

"Since the soft opening, we have seen visitors from all over experience and enjoy memorable performances at our Arena, the fantastic digital show in Aurora and the serene and luxurious escape at our 3-tower hotel.

"We will continue to play a leading role in supporting and growing the local economy while offering diverse amenities and unparalleled experiences to first-time and returning guests, international tourists, K-pop and K-culture fans and casino visitors." 

Mohegan CEO Ray Pineault added: "As we unveil the Inspire Casino, we're continuing to pioneer a new era of international hospitality. 

"This ambitious project is a testament to Mohegan's commitment to excellence, marking a major milestone in our growth as a preeminent owner and developer of integrated entertainment resorts. We take immense pride in enriching the vibrant landscape of Incheon, stimulating economic development and establishing new paradigms in the worldwide entertainment sector." 

Last week, it was reported that Mohegan Inspire Entertainment Resort had earned a five-star hotel rating by the Korean Hotel Rating System, the highest rating achievable on the group’s rating system.
