GKL receives more than 1 million visitors as MERS fears subside

Grand Korea Leisure announced that the three foreigner-only casinos under its Seven Luck brand received more than one million visitors for the first eight months of the year.

As of August 26, the cumulative number of its visitors stood at 1,002,315, up nearly 12 percent year-on-year. Customers spent approximately 300,000 won ($249) on average per day.

The average daily number of visitors at Seven Luck casinos reached nearly 4,900 from January to the end of May. However a steep decline occurred in June and July with the numbers falling to 3,200 and 2,500, respectively, due to travelling fears over the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome.

With the government declaring the official end to the MERS outbreak at the end of July, the number of visitors has gone up to 3,500 on average a day in August.


“Unlike other casinos, Seven Luck has been trying to become a leisure place for not only VIP customers but also general travelers as public casinos. Despite numerous unfavorable factors this year, we could maintain sales performance and achieve the 1 million mark in terms of attendance early. This would be a result of our steady efforts to provide the best environment and services to customers.” said Im Byung-soo, CEO of GKL.
