The Chilean Gaming Control Board Resolution Council is close to announcing which of two bidders will claim a gaming license in the city of Chillan, in the earthquake-prone Bio Bio region, about 250 miles from the capital of Santiago. The winner of the casino tender will be announced September 10.
Marina del Sol and the Argentinian-Spanish company Boldt-Peralada have submitted proposals for the planned resort, which is expected to take two years to complete and open. The World Casino Directory reports that Marina de Sol is the leading contender. WCD also reported that Boldt-Peralada has initiated legal action, alleging the fix was in for the other company.
