an news outlet Chosun Ibo has reported that the new Paradise City casino complex has attracted over 300,000 people through its doors in its opening months.

The development is South Korea's largest casino complex, and was only opened on 20 April 2017. It has 711 rooms and operates a foreigner’s only casino floor policy due to Korean regulations.

The complex is looking to expand in the future by opening a spa and mall to help further appeal to Korean families, a facility which should be operational by early 2018. The financial potential of the complex and its appeal can be better evaluated then, however, the large amount of visitors to the incomplete facility is a great sign of things to come.

A Paradise City spokesman said on Thursday: “Some 310,000 people had visited the complex, which opened on April 20. Since the first part opened, about 90% of hotel rooms have been occupied," said Kye Jung-hyun of Paradise City. "The second part is 55% finished. Once it's complete, the complex will emerge as a leading tourist attraction in Northeast Asia."
