Caesars Entertainment are taking seriously their bid for an Integrated Resort in Japan, the giant casino operator that missed out in Macau with a casino resort costing the company billions while other US competitors prospered in the world’s largest gambling hub are trying their hardest to ensure they are successful in Japan this time.

In a recent interview in a Japanese national newspaper executive vice-president of public policy and corporate responsibility for Caesars Entertainment , Jan Jones Blackhurst has said the company have presented a basic plan for an Integrated Resort in the City to the prefectural and city government.

However currently no city has been named to host an Integrated Resort and Osaka has not invited any proposals but Caesars want to be first there to plant their flag should it happen.

Jan Jones Blackhurst also said that Caesars had no set a limit on expenditure for the Resort should it happen, also William Shen, the new managing director and representative officer of Caesars Entertainment Japan has said to local news outlets there that Caesars are focussing their proposal around three main pillars that of Wellness, MICE, and Entertainment. The company believe that Social Responsibility in Japan will be the main deciding factor on which operators win a IR License.

Once the bidding process gets under way it is expected that eight operators from the US, Macau and Asia will vie for what is expected to be just three IR licenses.
