The project for the establishment of the first casino resort in Cyprus, which is expected to be Europe's largest, is proceeding smoothly despite the withdrawal of Hard Rock International, the eastern Mediterranean island's Gaming Commission official has said.

"The changes in the Cyprus registered company which was licensed to operate the casino have not affected the process of establishing an integrated casino resort," Christos Mavrellis, president of the National Gaming Commission told Xinhua.

Seminole HR Holdings LLC (Hard Rock), which is based in Florida, pulled out of the Cypriot registered consortium, Integrated Casino Resorts Cyprus that obtained the concession.

Mavrellis added that what is expected next is the opening of a provisional casino in Limassol, where the resort will be built, and four satellite casinos in other Cypriot cities, pending town planning and other permissions required.
