Upcoming Projects


New Casino Vessel in Goa: As part of the Detin Brand, there is a plan to introduce a new casino vessel on the scenic river Mandovi. This project involves an investment of 150 crore and aims to replace the existing Deltin Caravela (Currently known as Kings Casino). The introduction of the new ship is expected to signoficantly increase the gaming capacity, providing an enhanced experience for visitors.[14]

An Integrated Casino Resort: Delta Corp. has made a substantial investment in a 100- acre property location in Mopa, Pernem village. The estimated investment for this project amounts to Rs. 1,500 crore. Once completed, this new property is set to bring significant growth and development. With the expansion, Delta Corp. aims to create more employment opportunities, with projections of employing a substantial workforce of around 7,000 to 8,000 people. This endeavor showcases the commitment of the Jaydev Mody -led company towards boosting economic growth in the region and further strengthening their presence.[15]



Delta Corp has seen a decline in its stock value. A tax notice from the government, requiring a payment for the period between 2017 and 2022, has been a significant factor.[16] This has led to decreased investor confidence.[17] The imposition of a 28% GST on online gaming has also affected the company.[18]
