he sixth casino in the Clark Freeport Zone of Pampanga province, Philippines, is now open after it was formally inaugurated on Wednesday. Dong Huang Clark Corp. Chairman Lee Shin Kun, owner of the premier resort and casino, led the soft opening of D’ Heights Casino, nestled in the middle of the 309-hectare D’ Heights Resort and Casino which include the soon-to-open five star, 310-room Hilton Hotel and the Hyatt Regency.
Albert Pascual, D’ Heights Resort and Casino Business Development Manager, said the casino has an initial 50 gaming tables and 576 slot machines. He added that 100 gaming tables will be available during grand opening in October, Business Mirror reported.
The casino has a VIP floor, a high limit area dubbed D’ Heights Club and a junket area. The idea is to have a one-stop shop leisure and resorts area, Pascual said. He disclosed the initial investment for the property’s development is about $250 million.
The five other casinos here are Midori Casino, Royce, Widus, Mimosa Pagcor and the newly-opened Fortunegate Casino at Hotel Stotsenberg.
D’ Heights Resort and Casino sits on 350 meters above sea level resulting in a cooler, cleaner and fresher environment. It is located in the mountainous area at the north-west side of the Clark Freeport.
The property will also include an indoor water theme park, a man-made lake, villas, condominium towers, the Singapore International School, a 36-hole golf course, restaurants, duty-free shops, as well as commercial establishments.
Pascual also said Monterey’s Lake—composed of five towers, 15-story condominium units—is all sold out. The Monterey’s Switch, composed of seven tower condominium units, is now rising on the property, he added.
