TORONTO, ON, Oct. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Easton Pharmaceuticals Inc. (OTC: EAPH) announces that it has made it to the short-list to acquire an interest or participate in the acquisition of Club Hotel Casino Loutraki, a 5 Star casino and hotel resort in Greece. 

The resort comprises of a private beach, 255 rooms and 20 suites, 8 restaurants, a wellness center, conference facilities and an 87 table/1,000 slot machine casino plus a VIP area.  The casino and hotel resort is located in Loutraki, a seaside resort town, approximately 80 kilometers from Athens. The town is well known for its natural springs and therapeutic spas and draws tourists and visitors from all around the world. 

As part of its plan to enter more lucrative market segments, Easton has been working with the bank and the consultants currently in charge of handling the sale of the property in Greece, since early this past summer. This is one of just 9 casinos currently operating in Greece. The opportunity and the advancement is as a result of strong relationships Easton CEO, Mr. Evan Karras currently holds with some senior members of Greece’s current ruling government and other influential business leaders in Greece who are all assisting in bringing the process closer for Easton and the consortium. Mr. Evan Karras participated in the privatization of gaming in Greece in the 1990’s and is familiar with the property and the gaming industry in the country. The acquisition is at a substantial discount of its cost and offers substantial upside in the gaming and hospitality sector, as well as with redevelopment potential for luxury managed condominium vacation units. 

“Being placed on the short list is a very significant step for Easton,” stated Mr. Evan Karras, CEO of Easton, who has commenced several gaming and hospitality initiatives for the company in efforts to bring the company to new levels of growth and success. Mr. Karras further commented, “It is expected and we are hopeful that this opportunity would include Easton and will close on an agreement close to the same time as it hopes to close on its recently announced hotel / development opportunity in the heart of Toronto, Canada, which are also in late stage discussions.”

Additional news updates to be announced as they become available and approved for release.
