SAIPAN, CNMI (Marianas Variety, Dec. 4, 2015) – The longest operating casino in the Northern Marianas, which has been closed for almost three months, is reopening next week, according to the Tinian Casino Gaming Control Commission.

"The Dynasty requested that it be allowed to reopen on Dec. 9, 2015 and the commission approved it with conditions and certain requirements that it must fulfill prior to reopening," said commission executive director Lucy Blanco-Maratita,

However, Dynasty this week asked to change the reopening date to Dec. 15.

Dynasty told the commission in August that it would suspend its casino operations owing to the steep decline in tourist arrivals in the aftermath of Typhoon Soudelor which hit Saipan on Aug. 2, 2015.
