Long-delayed construction of Eurovegas could start this year
Austrian investors could start the long-delayed construction of a €300 million casino and hotel near Hungary's border with Austria and Slovakia this year, the communications agency for the project, dubbed Eurovegas told MTI.
The investors Hans Asamer and Alfred Supersberger - in partnership with Hard Rock International - are "ready for the construction" and are now working on ensuring financing for the project, the agency said. About half of the project's costs are to be financed from loans.
The casino is planned to open early in 2014, the agency said. The investors won a 20-year licence to operate a big casino at the site in 2006. The complex was to have opened by 2010, but construction was delayed because of the crisis.
