More and more residents of Japan are enrolling in casino schools, looking forward to the long-awaited opening of integrated resorts on the territory of the state.
Residents of Japan undergo accelerated courses in casino schools
Agence France Presse (AFP) reported that Japanese casino schools are seeing an incredible rise in the number of students who want to learn how to play various gambling games. Masayoshi Oivane, the owner of one of these schools, says that more and more Japanese are hoping to get work in the lucrative gambling industry, basing their assumptions on “an unprecedented number of enrolled students.”
After the adoption of the bill on integrated casino resorts, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said that integrated resorts will help attract foreign investment, which in turn will give impetus to the development of the country’s economy. According to Abe, the opening of casino resorts in Japan will also create new jobs, thereby strengthening the country’s competitive strength in the international arena.
According to analysts, the value of the Japanese casino market could reach $ 15.8 billion – more than the Las Vegas market ($ 11 billion). The international credit watchdog agency Fitch Ratings provided a more restrained estimate – $ 6 billion of potential annual gambling profits of Japan.
Japanese casino expert Toru Mihara predicts the creation of tens of thousands of jobs, even if the government decides to allow only land-based facilities on the territory of the state. In addition to gaming, Michara believes that the Japanese authorities should promote the development of business related to the holding of conferences and exhibitions.
“The influx of tourists can breathe life into different regions. This can grow into a new, leading industry, “said Mihara.
Recall: June 19, the House of Representatives, the lower house of the Japanese Parliament, adopted a bill on the introduction of integrated resorts.
