Cyprus Casinos Nicosia (“C2 Nicosia”) has opened its doors to the public. Cyprus Casinos “C2” is the first and only authorised casinos in the Republic of Cyprus, and the C2 Nicosia is the first satellite casino following the successful launch of the first temporary casino – Cyprus Casinos Limassol (“C2 Limassol”) last June.

Craig Ballantyne, Property President of City of Dreams Mediterranean and Cyprus Casinos, said he was pleased to see the new addition to the C2 portfolio.

He added, “C2 will significantly contribute to the efforts of the Cypriot government to combat illegal gaming.” He further stressed that C2 operates in accordance with the Cypriot law and relevant regulations, demonstrating Melco’s commitment to the highest standards of service, quality and responsible gaming.

Ballantyne noted that “100 people have been employed at the location in Nicosia, bringing the total number of Melco staff in Cyprus to over 700 individuals, the vast majority being Cypriot citizens.”

C2 Nicosia is located on 35 Neas Engomis Street. With a total area of 970 m2 it features five live tables and 50 slot machines. It is also home to another Columbia Bistro restaurant and bar. It boasts a similar interior design and identity as C2 Limassol.

C2 Nicosia is open Monday to Friday from 3 p.m. until 6 a.m. and 24-hours on weekends, public holidays and during the holidays. Visitors must be 21 years of age and above to enter and observe the responsible gaming policies of C2 as posted at all  its locations and online.

Cyprus Casinos Larnaca (“C2 Larnaca”), the second satellite casino, is also scheduled to open at Larnaca International Airport later this month.

More information about C2 is available on the website www.cypruscasinos.com.
