Only five candidates had met Friday´s deadline for submission of documents
(Singapore).- Local authorities said that U.S. casino operator Wynn Resorts has been eliminated from the race to build Singapore’s first casino after failing to submit a background check by a deadline imposed by the city-state.
Only five candidates had met Friday’s deadline for submission of documents for a compulsory background check, the Singapore Tourism Board said in a statement late Friday. The government had asked shortlisted candidates to send in personal and corporate history disclosure forms.
Wynn joins Australia’s Tabcorp Holdings and Singapore-listed Guocoland among those who appear to have withdrawn this week. South Africa’s Peermont Global backed out earlier.
Singapore reversed its decades-old ban on casino gambling earlier this year and is offering licenses to build and operate two casino resorts in a bid to shed its straight- laced image and help attract more tourists.
Analysts said the two casino resorts, to be completed by 2009, will cost around us$ 5 billion -- about us$ 3 billion for the one at Marina Bay and us$ 2 billion for the one on Sentosa Island.
The Friday deadline was only for the Marina Bay project. The Singapore government will tender the Sentosa project next year, and it is not immediately clear if the Las Vegas- based Wynn Resorts intends to bid then.
Among those who met the deadline include Las Vegas casino companies Harrah’s Entertainment, Las Vegas Sands, MGM Mirage and Malaysia’s Genting International.
Singapore has a fixed price for the Marina Bay project, and said it would pick the winners based on the quality of its concept.
