Resorts World Sentosa's casino licence has been renewed for another three years.

In a press release issued on Friday, the Casino Regulatory Authority of Singapore (CRA) said RWS' new licence will come into effect from Feb 6.

A CRA spokesman said that RWS' compliance record was one of many factors considered with assessing the licence application.

She added: "In renewing RWS' casino licence, CRA has imposed additional requirements on RWS to put in place more robust structures and processes aimed at strengthening its overall compliance of our laws and regulations." Just last month, RWS was penalised $100,000 for breaches of the casino regulations.
