The new Genting Casino complex has been under construction for the last 2 and half years since work began in February 2013. This new casino complex is made up of 12 stories covering 50,000 square metres and costing over £150 Million since construction began.
Built next to the NEC site in Birmingham the Resorts World complex is a jointly funded project from Genting Casinos and the NEC Group who's CEO Paul Thandi said at the time: "Our partnership with Genting marks an important step in our wider vision to make the NEC site more of a destination and the place where people come to discover the future.".
