KUALA LUMPUR (Aug 22): Genting Group is among six bidders for a casino project in Toronto, Canada, according to a New York Post report.

New York Post, quoting sources, reported that other bidders included Caesars Entertainment.

"Toronto voted in July 2015 to approve a casino with live table games if it included an entertainment complex. At least two development sites in the city are under consideration.

"The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp expects to announce a winner late next summer, it said. The Genting Group, which runs Resorts World in the Aqueduct complex, is also interested, a source said," New York Post reported.
