Han: “Acknowledgment of the government’s trust and confidence for the company”
Widus Philippines Inc has announced it has obtained its first regular gaming license from the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (Pagcor). The company is the operator of the Widus Hotel and Casino at Clark Freeport Zone.
Widus president and chief executive officer Daesik Han said the authorization was “a solidified acknowledgment of the government’s trust and confidence for the company’s competency and compliance.”
The company was earlier given a provisional gaming license in 2014 when a minimum of P2.25 billion (US$43.5 million) was partially fulfilled form the total committed investment of P4.5 billion (US$87m). The total committed investment was accomplished after four years, after further financing. WPI currently manages the operations of Widus Casino, which has 67 tables, 358 slot machines, and 28 ETGs.
