Casinos Austria outlines interest in Nagasaki casino

Casinos Austria International (CAI) has said it will join the race for a Japanese casino licence if Nagasaki lands one of the IR spots, adding that its project could include a Viennese Philharmonic Orchestra as a permanent option for the audience. The company’s Director for Japan said CAI plans to develop something “never seen elsewhere in the world.”

Speaking at the at the Kyushu Nagasaki Integrated Resort (IR) Business-Connect Seminar, Casinos Austria International Japan’s Managing Director, Akio Hayashi, described the plans as “amazing” adding they had not been “seen elsewhere in the world.”

Nagasaki emphasised that CAI wasn’t looking to replicate the “gaudiness of Las Vegas or Macau” but that it wanted to to create a “European-style IR” to suit a regional city with MICE as a key.

As part of the presentation, Austrian Prime Minister, Sebastian Kurtz, spoke via a video recording about what a great honour it would be to be a part of Nagasaki’s IR.

Nagasaki Governor, Hodo Nakamura, has previously said: “We aim to establish an entry point for IRs with a Japanese IR in Kyushu.”
