Alter City files casino license with Tinian gaming commission

Alter City filed its casino license application with the Tinian Casino Gaming Control Commission this month after making two payments of $200,000 and $100,000 for an application and investigation fees, respectively.

According to local media, the payments on June 11th follow a meeting in May in which representatives of Alter City Group met with Lt. Governor-elect Ralph DLG Torres and other Northern Mariana Islands officials to present a check of $1.2 million as partial payment for the firm’s major siting permit for its casino resort on Tinian.

The Saipan Tribune reported that the company outlined changes to its plan for the resort, which will now be built on 700,000 square meters of land leased with the government as opposed to the 200,000 square meters as initially proposed.

The resort will include theme parks, a skybridge, a hotel and casino resort complex with a total of 6,000 hotel rooms, villas and serviced apartments.
