“The casino Grand Opening was a wonderful success,” said CEO Mike Bolsover. “We were overbooked both evenings of the event at the hotel, the international and local performers were well received by gaming and by non-gaming guests and in the casino we achieved several milestones including records for daily and monthly drop and for daily and monthly GGR.”
Where else can you visit the birthplace of Buddha, go on safari with tigers, elephants and rhinos and see Everest all in one day, let alone on one holiday?,” Silver Heritage CEO Mike Bolsover said.
ASX-listed Silver Heritage Group finally launched hotel and casino operations at its new Tiger Palace Resort Bhairahawa in late 2017, having survived the 2015 earthquake, a fuel blockade on the Nepal-India border and an AU$19 million (US$14.4 million) funding shortage as a result of the delays. IAG spoke to Silver Heritage Managing Director and CEO Mike Bolsover about the Nepal-based project.
Mike Bolsover, managing director and chief executive of Silver Heritage, expressed gratitude towards people involved in designing, developing, building, completing, and finally opening Tiger Palace Resort Bhairahawa. He added that the future of the company, the people of Nepal and tourism sector in the country is bright.
The new casino in Nepal, the Silver Heritage property in the Tiger Palace Resort Bhairahawa, is on schedule to open by November 30, Silver Heritage Group has confirmed. The casino is part of a major hotel resort complex that is now open ahead of schedule and the first hotel guests have arrived. Co-founders Mike Bolsover and Tim Shepherd, with local partners, were guests at a pre-opening of the hotel last week. The soft opening includes the gym, spa and swimming pool with the casino as the last part.
