The Inspire Athens casino project is important as it is slated to provide 7,000 jobs during the construction and after it, as well as open the new era of tourism and economic growth for Greece and Southeast Europe. However, by the end of 2021 the Inspire Athens project underwent changes:

The Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment reviewed their future operations and commitments announcing the transfer of its entire stake in the project to GEK Terna who was previously a minor investor. It’s reported that GEK Terna was looking for a company to fill Mohegan’s share and had discussions with the US company, Hard Rock Hotels & Casinos, who has already bid in 2019 but unsuccessfully.

Considering the latest Greek news dated February 2022, the two groups reached an agreement that Hard Rock will undertake the implementation of the whole project and then participate in its management. The US group will acquire 51% of the capital but the final agreement has not been signed yet. However, will the change in the shares composition affect the announced opening dates is still an open question.
