Only Residents are required to purchase a day levy or annual levy before entering the casino. A day levy allows you to stay in the casino for up to 24-hour period from the first entry into the casino. You can also buy an annual levy that gives you unlimited entries to Singapore's first casino at RWS for 12 consecutive months from the first entry into the Casino Premises.
||Must I buy the levy on the day I visit?
The day levy is valid for 30 days, while the annual levy will be automatically activated upon your first entry into the casino or 90 days from the date of purchase.
