Donaco postpones online gaming until next month

Asian casino operator Donaco International Ltd has again delayed the rollout of its online gaming platform for the third time, with an expected launch date now set for sometime next month, according to a report last week by gaming site CalvinAyre.

The Australian-listed casino operator first announced that it would launch online gaming operations based out of its brick-and-mortar Star Vegas Resort and Club casino in Poipet in September. The online gaming platform, which is reported to operate 12 tables run by third-party junkets, was last expected to be operational in October.

Donaco is currently trying to seek an injunction on an unnamed Thai businessman that is continuing to operate a gaming floor at Star Paradise, a property next to Star Vegas which the firm purchased in 2015.
