The temporary casino has 33 tables and 242 slots, a VIP gaming room, a restaurant and two bars and employs a staff of 593, of whom 75% are Cypriot. Entrance is allowed only to  people aged 21 and over.

The Cyprus News Agency said that the official opening will take place in September, with the temporary casino operating on a trial basis. It will close in 2021, when the integrated casino  “City of Dreams Mediterranean” opens.
