Gaming and Entertainment :
Delta Corp Ltd. brought world-class gaming, entertainment and hospitality that is tailored to suit Indian customers and the Indian lifestyle.
Today, we are the only listed company in India engaged in casino gaming, with 2,000+ live gaming positions and with state-of-the-art offshore and onshore casinos. We have a presence across Goa and Sikkim and in Online skill gaming. Our offshore casino Deltin Royale, in Goa, is currently India’s largest offshore gaming vessel. Deltin JAQK and Kings casino are two other offshore gaming vessels. We also operate an electronic onshore casino at our hotel Deltin Suites in Goa.
We own and operate a live gaming casino at Gangtok, Sikkim – at Hotel Welcome Heritage Denzong Regency, which is displaying good year-on-year performance. It will provide a fillip to tourism and enable Sikkim’s gaming market to grow at an even faster pace.
As another addition to our widening casino portfolio and to further expand our regional footprint, we set up a new casino in Nepal, housed within the premises of Hotel Marriott, Kathmandu. During the year under review, we received the gaming licence, and in February 2020, we started operations at the 15,000 sq. ft. casino space. We are excited about this as Nepal is a developing market in the gaming segment. Also, having to operate out of the best 5-star hotel in Kathmandu is a definite competitive advantage we enjoy. Located in central Kathmandu, Hotel Marriott offers a strategic locational advantage from the viewpoint of footfalls, and has the potential to attract visitors.
Among our other casinos, The Deltin, a luxury hotel at Daman, continues to be “casino ready” as we await Government approval. Its proposed casino is spread across a sprawling 60,000 sq. ft. of space. Once the casino becomes operational, it will boost tourism in Daman, with the presence of an integrated resort offering gaming, entertainment, luxury and hospitality.
The anticipated land policy of the Goa government is still on the anvil. Once this materialises, it will lead to the creation of gaming zones and will formalise the industry. Being a leader in the segment in the Goa market, we are well positioned to benefit from this significant change.
Our focus on Online gaming stays, and we continue to enjoy being a market leader. Our gaming portal Adda52 is today India’s leading skill-based poker website in the online space. Growing Internet penetration, easy data accessibility and the availability of online payment options makes us optimistic about the future growth prospects of this segment.
At Delta Corp, with state-of-the-art offshore and onshore casinos and online gaming platforms, we have changed the country’s gaming landscape. We synergise gaming and hospitality to create a holistic and unparalleled entertainment experience. We constantly strive to deliver what our customers value the most – a fully integrated portfolio of gaming platforms with unrivalled service.
