The temporary Saipan casino from Hong Kong-listed Imperial Pacific International Holdings saw its rolling chip volumes hit approximately $1.74 billion for July while the figure for the first seven months of the year has topped $15 billion.

According to a report from GGRAsia, Imperial Pacific International Holdings opened its Best Sunshine Live casino in November offering 16 VIP gaming tables alongside 32 mass-market counterparts. The facility in the Commonwealth Of The Northern Mariana Islands has been bringing in average monthly rolling chip volumes of around $2.17 billion with a record-setting $3.19 billion seen for April.

“We are dealing with the “VVIP” guys that we personally know,” Mark Brown, Chief Executive Officer for Best Sunshine International, told the Nikkei Asian Review business journal last week.

Brown told GGRAsia that play is being arranged through individual relationships and declared that visitors from mainland China made up “100 percent” of Best Sunshine Live’s VIP players.

Imperial Pacific International Holdings secured an exclusive casino license for Saipan via its Best Sunshine International subsidiary in August of 2015 and subsequently spent $25 million to open the temporary Best Sunshine Live facility. It is investing some $500 million to construct The Grand Mariana Casino And Hotel Resort on the Pacific Ocean island and expects this more permanent 350-room development to open early next year offering more than 400 slots and 200 gaming tables alongside 15 private villas, several restaurants and a nightclub.
