Saipan regulator turns back certain junket operators


The Commonwealth Casino Commission has returned some of the applications of junket operators aiming to supply Saipan’s Best Sunshine International with VIP players.

CCC executive director Edward Deleon Guerrero said they are still going through the vetting process and the background checks before they could issue another provisional license for an applicant.

In September, CCC issued a provisional license to Korea-based junket operator, Big Bang Entertainment, the junket operator remains to be the only one through the gates at the moment.

“There remains one junket operator that we approved while the other applicants are still under review on the procedure that we have implemented. We are still going through with the vetting process,” said Deleon Guerrero quoted by the Saipan Tribune.

“We have 17 other applicants but we took some of them and we turn them back. There are certain areas that they are missing and have not yet completed or complied with. Some of them have re-submitted their applications,” he said.

Junket operator applicants are required to go through a number of checks including credit, role, wealth and delegation.
