SINGAPORE'S first casino at Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) has attracted more than 128,000 visitors since its opening on February 14, the first day of the Lunar New Year.

The lure of the new also doubled average visitor numbers to 30,000 a day for the resort island of Sentosa. Restaurants and tourist attractions reported a 20 per cent increase in business since the casino's opening.

Megazip Adventure Park has also seen “exceptionally good business” during the recent festive holiday break, but its spokesperson Sarene Seet was unable to ascertain that it was a result of RWS' opening.

She said, however, that “Sentosa as a resort island has benefited from greater publicity and renewed interest with new facilities rolled out” and the adventure park had benefited from well-managed access to the island.

The Sentosa Resort & Spa general manager Nigel Grocock said RWS' full impact on business would only be seen when Universal Studios Singapore opened. In the meantime, Grocock's team has been working on hotel packages that include visits to the theme park.
