Following the successful opening of Cyprus Casinos “C2” Ayia Napa (C2 Ayia Napa) earlier this month, Ayia Napa Mayor Yiannos Karousos officially inaugurated the new facilities on Wednesday.
C2 Ayia Napa is the third licensed satellite casino to open its doors in Cyprus following C2 Nicosia and C2 Larnaca and the original C2 Limassol temporary casino.
C2 Ayia Napa opened its doors on July 15, marking a new era for the tourism sector in the holiday resort.
Located in the heart of Ayia Napa’s vivid tourist area and featuring 50 state-of-the art Slot Machines as well another popular Columbia Bistro, C2 Ayia Napa is set to enhance the overall visitor experience while enriching Ayia Napa’s tourism product.
The opening event was attended by members of Ayia Napa’s Municipal Council, media representatives, representatives of the Cyprus Hotel Association, and the Tourist Trade Industrial Company of Famagusta. The guests had the opportunity to tour the casino premises, be updated by Melco’s executives on recent developments and gain valuable insights into the casino’s operation.
During the opening event, Karousos expressed his satisfaction for the commencement of operation of the casino and stated: “We are particularly happy that Melco has chosen our municipality to operate its satellite casino in the district of Famagusta. I am confident that the new facilities we have inaugurated today, in combination with Melco’s expertise and professionalism will contribute in enhancing Ayia Napa’s tourism product. We look forward to a constructive cooperation that will create multiple benefits for the local economy and community”.
The Mayor also noted that the casino will contribute in establishing Ayia Napa as a year-round destination.
