Locals and tourists visiting the Tinian Dynasty resort will need to make sure that they are carrying cash as the property is now a cash-only facility. According to recent reports, the hotel and casino are no longer accepting payments via credit card. Visitors are encouraged to bring cash to pay for restaurant dining and hotel stays.
The Tinian Dynasty first opened back in 1998 and was the first casino to be offering in the Northern Mariana Islands. The casino was eventually closed after Typhoon Soudelor took place, causing damage to Saipan and decreasing the number of visitors to Tinian.
The leaders of Tinian and the CNMI asked the casino management to stay open but the casino does not have plans to reopen until a new investor is found to secure a license needed to operate the casino. A license must be granted by the Tinian Casino Gaming Control Commission before operation can begin.
