Oasis was a casino in Jericho city. It was the first largest private investment in the Palestinian territories, as well as the first major cross-border development project, involving Israel, the Palestinian Authority and Jordan. It was meant to be both a fertile spot for investment and gaming and to facilitate communication and peace, before it was taken over by corruption and conflicts. It closed its doors in 2000, 2 years after it opened. Oasis is now an immersive computer generated game, a system with its own rules, where the viewer is the player.
