It is our understanding that Dunes will close when the new casino in Simpson bay is open. We were there yesterday and told that they hope to have it open by the end of this month--I think that is a stretch because it doesn't look nearly there. I hope that this is not the case because they just redid it and it is clean and all the workers there are very friendly.
Dunes and Starz is owned by the same person. When Stars was destroyed, they renovated the Dunes, employees have "Stars" uniforms. I doubt the Dunes will ever close, as that is a personal battle between owners, and both have very deep pockets and connections.
Ok, thanks for that info. I did not know that Starz and the Dunes were owned by the same person. With Casino Royale out of business and no Starz either, about the only game in town is Hollywood, which has been looking very long in the tooth. Although I guess with the Causeway, PDP is not that far..
Francesco Corallo was extradited to Italy last August on charges of tax fraud, bribery, money laundering and membership of a criminal organization. However, upon arrival in Rome, he was immediately released as he spent more time in detention in St Maarten than the charges allow. He said in an interview he has not been directed accused of money laundering or bribery and that these charges have to do with making tax payments that were not made on time. He said all the tax payments have been made, they were just made late.
