UAE’s First Gambling Resort
The Wynn Marjan is preparing to open a casino in the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah, which is currently in the process of drafting gaming laws for the casino with Singaporean and American regulations as the basis.
Wynn Resorts, the company that announced plans for casinos to open in Ras Al Khaimah earlier this month, has trademarked the terms “Arabian Strip” and “Marjan Strip,” according to an article published earlier this month in Arabian Business. The Las Vegas hotel company successfully registered its trademarks after filing them the previous year.
According to Craig Billings, CEO of Wynn Resorts, the casino at Wynn Marjan, which is scheduled to open in 2026 in Ras Al Khaimah, will be about 18,500 sqm in size. There’s no telling if they will offer online casinos in Korea.
