The Hong Kong based company went head-to-head with Marianas Stars Entertainment, the local subsidiary of the Hong Kong Mega Stars corporation, which already owns CNMI's Tinian Dynasty Hotel and Casino.

Anti-casino activists have been angered by the government's handling of the matter and a lack of consultation with locals.
