Groupe Partouche

Groupe Partouche, the French casino operator has parted company with their partner for an application for an integrated casino resort in Nagasaki Japan.

Oshidori International Holdings Ltd, a Hong Kong listed company who were to be partners with Groupe Partouche for the Nagasaki resort application are now no longer to go ahead with the tilt for a license in Japan. Partouche did not give a reason for the termination and nor did Oshidori but the French operator said in a statement that they are still: “attentive to the evolution of IR development projects and remains interested in having the opportunity to participate in one of them”.

With the delay in Japan for the process of choosing both locations and then winning operators many international operators are falling away with their interest in Japan.

Only recently Las Vegas Sands withdrew their interest and on the other hand Wynn Resorts closed their offices there and Caesars Entertainment has also left the race.

Since the purchase of its first casino in 1973, Groupe Partouche has been able to develop and diversify in order to become the European leader in its sector of activity.

Today, it operates 42 casinos in France, Switzerland, Belgium and Tunisia. The Partouche Group also has a wide range of activities with hotels, restaurants, spa centers, golf courses, SPAs and beaches.
