    You are wrong. Most of the high rollers do not want to be seen as many of them are here to launder "black money" !!!

    High rollers in MBS are never seen.

    They have their own private gaming rooms, whisked in through Seletar airport by MBS owned private jets

    Why else is all the banks located right beside MBS if not to make it easy to launder money?

    Who knows, things may change again.
    Thanks for confirmation. Unlikely to change. 2016 election is coming and another casino is a very big social and political risk.

    If there is ever going to be another IR, it will have to be at JLD and no where else. STB and EDB, who were both involved in the previous IR projects, have been assigned to undertake the role of developing JLD, and if you noticed the masterplan, the huge plot of lakeside land to the left has been left vacant for sometime. And the puzzle will be complete when Fairway Club vacant their place.

    I think those people who bought the DBSS right next to it will huat big time when new of IR or mega theme park is announced.

    Have the IR face the HDB flats everyday?? The planners must have lost their brains somewhere to actually think of that. Alternatively, the planners could be totally insensitive to the growing concerns on the side effects of casinos.

    building an IR is very different from a stand alone casino, what you see is the IR, not the casino itself. And IR can only exist if they have enough supporting attractions and infrastructure surrounding the IR to pull in the crowds. You will need hotels, retail malls, huge land space, other tourist attractions, F&B outlet etc.

    And JLD masterplan has got all that in place to support such a project.

    Whether is will happen or not, will really depends if EDB or STB can managed to secure a mega theme park project without having to use casino as a carrot.

    A casino can only be qualified as an IR if they can generate around 50 to 70% of their revenue from non-gaming business. If we are going to having one is some out of the way southern island, then it will be impossible to meet that criteria due to the lack of human traffic.

    plus it will be most unlikely that government will build a stand alone casino as well because that will be seen as benefiting themselves rather than for Singapore economy and jobs.
