Grand Belize Entertainment Group plans to build a resort and spa on the Caribbean island with an online portal the company is designing to capitalize on the global internet gambling boom.
“As one of only four licensed casinos to Belize, the launch of the online casino will attract gaming aficionados around the globe while promoting our world-class property in Belize, even before it opens,” said COO Michael Glauser.
The company is partnering with Peak Gaming Group on the development, launch and management of the online casino, which is scheduled to go live in the second quarter.
The land-based component is being developed by Blue Sky Advisory Group, which also will manage day-to-day operations. Plans call for 200 rooms and suites, a spa and pool, 40,000 square feet of duty-free retail shopping and 315,000 square feet of gaming space with approximately 700 slot machines and 20 to 25 table games. Mobile gaming will be available in certain private areas and in the restaurants and lounges.
The property is slated to open next year.
