South Korea: Paradise Co Casino re-opens despite lockdown Violeta Prockyte, Gambling Insider · April 14, 2020 at 7:49 pm Paradise Co, an operator from South Korea, has re-opened one of its casinos on Jeju Island. Paradise complied with the country’s regulations and suspended all its operations on 24 March. The decision to resume work came as a surprise since the company’s other operations remain closed due to the virus outbreak. Paradise even extended the lockdown until April 20 for its casinos in Seoul, Busan and Incheon. The company also stressed that even with the casinos being closed, the hotels remain open. However, the island venue Casino Jeju Grand opened its doors on Monday. Like Paradise’s other operations, Jeju Grand is only accessible to foreigners with a foreign passport. It’s still unclear what prompted the decision to re-open the venue as any international travel remains restricted.
