This research is about the degree of competiveness of casino between both casinos in Singapore. In 2004, the Singapore’s government had start planning and introducing plan to build casino in Singapore (Southern Shores of Singapore, 2004). Interested casino operator hence summited their proposal to win the entry to build casino in Singapore and in 2006 it was reported that Genting (Chua and Whitley, 2006) and Las Vegas Sands (Sgentrepreneurs, 2006) won the bid.
