On the third floor of the casino, players will find the VIP gaming area. For the poker enthusiast, the second floor is home to a poker room, branded after the Asia Poker Tour.
Overnight guests of the property can book a hotel stay in one of 128 guest rooms on-site. The facility also includes a heated pool and fitness area, food and beverage space, bar that includes a concert stage plus a spa.
Chairman of Pagcor, Andrea D. Domingo, spoke with the BusinessMirror on the project and stated that she is very happy to see the Manila Jockey Club adhering to the new policy of the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp, which is to encourage integrated resort casinos, rather than focus on gaming or just the casino portion of the venue.
