Thursday, August 9 2018: The Hellenic Gaming Commission (HGC) has invited  interested parties to participate in the consultation process for the granting of an Integrated Resort Casino (IRC) licence in the Hellinikon - Ag. Kosmas Metropolitan Area (“The Hellinikon”). The consultation will close on Monday, September 10, 2018.  


The Hellinikon Casino goes beyond the licensing of just another gaming facility. This present call reflects the collective vision and commitment to collaborate on the further development and implementation of a sustainable tourism destination. The HGC envisages a “world class” Integrated Resort Casino operation as an important part of the Hellinikon, a project destined to transform the wider area of Athens and improve the lives of millions of residents and visitors of the capital city, enhance the Greek tourism product and become a growth engine for the Greek economy.

Over the next few years, the Hellinikon will become an international business and financial hub inn an exquisite location. The Hellinikon, a landmark urban development project will utilize investment amounts of up to € 8 bn., creating 10,000 jobs during the construction period and 75,000 jobs (IOBE study, July 2016) during its maturity. 


The IRC site can yield an area more than 600k sqm and is envisaged to be developed as a largescale iconic lifestyle destination with a compelling mix of a resort development comprising hotels, convention and exhibition facilities, themed attractions, entertainment, casino gaming up to 15,000 sqm buildable area, shopping, gourmet restaurants, cultural elements, and other tourist attractions. 


Interested parties are encouraged to take part in the consultation process that has been launched, and to communicate to the HGC, on a strictly confidential basis, their feedback and comments on this investment opportunity for a pioneering project not just in Athens or Greece, but in the whole of Europe.
