Bye Boracay? Galaxy Entertainment scouting for new casino site
There’s no going against the President on this one.
Tourism Assistant Secretary Ricky Alegre has revealed that Macau’s Galaxy Entertainment is already searching for alternative sites for their $500-million casino complex planned in Boracay Island.
This comes after Malacañang categorically announced that there would be “no new casino” in the popular tourist spot.

Galaxy Entertainment and its local partner Leisure and Resorts World Corp. had already secured a license from the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. to build a new gaming facility in Aklan before President Duterte ordered the closure of the island for major rehabilitation and clean-up activities.
