Rush Street Japan has unveiled its architectural team which it hopes will one day soon be designing and building an IR in Tomakomai, Hokkaido.
The Nihon Keizai Shinbun held its second IR seminar on March 5, this time in Sapporo, Hokkaido, before an audience of 367 people.
Rush Street Japan has launched its “My Tomakomai” online platform in both Japanese and English languages to solicit local community views about the elements which should be integrated into a Tomakomai IR.
Rush Street Gaming has an unbroken record of success, and that is why they are confident in winning an IR license in Japan at this time. So says Neil Bluhm, the company’s chairman and noted Chicago billionaire in an exclusive interview with AGB Nippon.
In early October, Rush Street Gaming’s Japan branch was quietly established, with the Chicago-based firm currently looking at Tomakomai, Hokkaido, as the main direction for its IR license campaign.
The partnership between Rush Street Gaming and the Clairvest Group which had endured since 2011 has come to an end after a third company, Churchill Downs, has bought the entire Clairvest stake in the Rivers Casino of Des Plaines, Illinois.
