Melco Resorts & Entertainment named Top Gaming Operator at IGA

Recently updated on February 12th, 2018

After a landmark year in the Australia/Asia gambling sector, Melco Resorts has been named the Top Gaming Operator at the International Gaming Awards (IGA) 2018. This is a first for the Hong Kong gaming firm, which operates City of Dreams Macau and Manila. Additionally, they own and operate a number of other facilities in the resorts.

Melco Resorts & Entertainment has been a driving force in the Australia/Asia gambling industry. This is mainly because of their architectural feats. For example, their Morpheus hotel in Macau is slated as the ‘first free-form exoskeleton high rise’ in the world. It will also be the first hotel brand created, owned and operated by the firm.
