The casino at the Tinian Dynasty Hotel & Casino has remained closed despite announcements that it would open last Tuesday.

The Tinian Casino Gaming Control Commission executive director Lucy Blanco-Maratita says the casino owners, Hong Kong Entertainment Investments, have yet to meet conditions imposed by the Commission.

The company's casino operations reopening were contingent on several wage, fee and contract-related conditions being settled.

Tinian Dynasty's casino was closed in August this year, followed by the hotel's closure in September, with the management citing the impact of Typhoon Soudelor, which hit Saipan on August the 3rd.

Earlier this week the company filed for bankruptcy but said at the time this was part of a re-organisation of its operation.
