Recently we covered Manila, Philippines and how it’s on the way to becoming one of the most popular casinos havens in Asia behind Macao. Casinos are highly patronized by the people in this country because it is not allowed on the mainland of China or the Philippines. The City of Dreams Manila is one of the newest additions to the fast-rising gaming businesses in the country.

Composed of three luxurious hotels, nearly 2,000 electronic tables and slot machines, and over 300 gaming tables, City of Dreams Manila is anticipated to draw interest among gamblers from every corner of the world. James Packer, the Australian billionaire and owner of Melco Crown Entertainment Limited, is behind this genius. An expert in the world of casinos, Melco also has numerous award-winning casinos in Macau.

According to sources, City of Dreams Manila is expected to launch sometime in April and high rollers will soon enter its magnificent gates. You never know which high-end celebrity will soon frequent the place. In case anything happens, security is always prepared with a well-equipped police force. Gamblers have their bad days and when they do, security is ready to handle any situation to ensure the safety of all of its players. Reported to cost around a billion dollars in the making, City of Dreams Manila has a wide, stunning array of attractions that will surely be a feast for your eyes.

Dreamworks, Nobu, Hyatt, the Pangea Group, and Crown are some of the leisure brands that the City of Dreams Manila has brought together. Just located at the gateway to Entertainment City, you can say that fun can never be that far away. The City of Dreams Manila has a 6.2 hectare site for its international cuisine offerings, designer bag collections, and, of course, the modern and spacious casino that has got everyone talking.

Lawrence Ho, the co-chairman and CEO of Melco Crown Entertainment or MCE, said that it is a new chapter in the progress of the Philippines that the City of Dreams Manila heralds. It is also about the country’s continuous development as one of the forerunners to be the top leisure and tourist destination in Asia.

On the other hand, the year 2015 is the Year for the Tiger and not of the sleepy Sheep. Tiger Resorts Manila is also a new gambling paradise but unlike City of Dreams, Tiger Resort caters not only for the high-rollers but also to the mass markets. One of the most unforgettable experiences in Tiger Resorts is its indoor beach, a feeling that you will get from being there can not be described on paper.

Kazuo Okada, the Japanese billionaire and owner of Tiger Resort Leisure and Entertainment Inc., is proud to announce that his casino will offer the largest number of hotel rooms. General Manager and Senior Vice President Adrian Ort said that the casino can host up to 2, 000 hotel rooms. He also added that the location is great and praises Mr. Okada for his wonderful insight on the casino. Matt Hurst, the Executive Vice President of Tiger Resorts, concluded that Tiger Resorts Manila is confident enough to be compared with the other casinos in the world.

It was not until 2009 when the Philippines just freed itself from hands of the government when it comes to gambling. PAGCOR, or the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation was the sole casino operator until that year. The Filipinos felt the need for a change when they saw how things are done in Singapore and Macau.

The opening of Resorts World Manila was historical – it made a mark on the casino world in the Philippines. A premium casino resort, Resorts World Manila has 1,574 rooms and a 30,000 square feet to include a shopping mall and a casino. Remington Hotel, Maxims Hotel, and Marriot Hotel Manila are three of its hotels; all of which provide the best service.

Resorts World Manila or RWM, combines premium hotels, gaming facilities, restaurants, recreational activities, a casino, and a luxury mall. Those are some of the reasons why RWM is fast shaping up as one of the hottest tourist and local destinations. Genting Hong Kong, Travellers International Hotel Group, Inc., and Alliance Global Inc., are the established names that have partnered up with RWM.

The Solaire Resort and Casino was the first to open in the Entertainment City project in Manila Bay. 500 deluxe rooms, bayside villas, and suites include the majestic view that is Solaire. If you are into dancing and other recreational activities, you will enjoy their fitness center, fully-equipped spa, a state-of-the-art ballroom, and meeting space.

Tiger Resorts, City of Dreams, and Resorts World are among them. People do not realize that they can also enjoy the same gambling fun in the comfort of their home or even during breaks at work. All you will need is a smartphone and a reliable Internet connection, and in an instant, you can play just like you are in an actual casino. However, playing online cannot compare with the luxury experience these World Class resorts offer.
