The Hellenic Gaming Commission has accepted a relevant competition committee's review of the two offers for an integrated resort casino concession at the Helleniko site, with the consortium comprised of Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment and Athens-based Gek Terna acquiring the advantage after the rival offer by Hard Rock International was disqualified.
The development was widely expected after Hard Rock's offer was burdened with a erroneous date on a letter of guarantee, according to numerous media reports.
The gaming commission is expected to issue an official announcement - possibly by Friday - over the results. Members of the competition committee were tasked with review and approving legal documents and affirmations submitted by the two suitors.
Whatever appeals will be examined within a 10-day period after the official announcement is made.
