competitor became successfully eliminated

Originally, two large companies had applied for the new casino resort at the former Athens airport:Hard Rock International and Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment. After a long application process, the gaming authority HGC has chosen Mohegan. Hard Rock International took legal action against this, but has so far been unsuccessful. The European Court of Justice will show whether this could change. According to official reports,Hard Rock International wants to go one court distance higher. Experts rightly wonder why Hard Rock International didn't win the licensing. The decision could be because, compared to Mohegan, theHard Rock group has no experience with a new building. Until now, this company has been able to run numerous casino resorts. However, this was never a new building. In addition, there are probably some uncertainties regarding the financial situation. For a construction project worth eight billion euros, the financing should be guaranteed.
