Widus Casino gets the first regular gaming license in Clark
The billion-peso property is now the first casino operator to receive a regular gaming license from PAGCOR in Clark. Widus President and CEO Daesik Han described the acquisition of the notable authorization as "a solidified acknowledgement of the government’s trust and confidence for the company’s competency and compliance.” Han, who considers the achievement as another milestone for Widus, also said that he envisions his company to be at par with other premier leisure and gaming destinations here and abroad. "We take pride in bringing world-class hospitality and entertainment in the area alongside adding value to the community. These investment projects aim to create more job opportunities for the locals while further boosting the business and tourism market here,” Han added. The South Korean-born businessman operated his first hotel tower back in July 2008 under Widus International Leisure Inc. (WILI) and eventually acquired its casino license to open a gaming facility with 24 tables and 150 slot machines in December 18, 2009.
