It's highly unlikely that Manchester will get it's "Super Casino"
Manchester wins a Super Casino
Manchester was the suprise winner of the UK's first super casino. The city's bid for a Super Casino was down as the least likely to be picked by the Governments Casino and Gambling panel, with the favourites being London and Blackpool.
Over 2,700 jobs will be created, directly and indirectly, and the Casino will inject £265million into the local economy.
The casino site will contain an entertainment complex with a swimming poo, restaurants, bars and a hotel.
The plans include over 2,500 slot machines which will offer unlimited jackpots on the Sportcity complex.
The official press release from Manchester City Council is here:
Manchester is selected for the UKís first regional casino
While we wait for the Manchester super casino to open why not play at Kerching Kerching Online Casino. This UK based online casino offers a secure and safe way to play the latest blackjack, roulette and slots games, powered by WagerWorks.
The Casino Advisory Panel today made its recommendation to the Secretary of State for Culture Media and Sport that Manchester should be the location for the UKís first regional casino bringing thousands of jobs and training opportunities to people in Manchester. If approved, the decision could give the go-ahead for over £265 million investment in a major leisure and entertainment development, creating 2,700 jobs and a range of community facilities.
Manchesterís approved licensing policy sets out the process that will be pursued to award a regional casino licence in full compliance of the Gambling Act.
The Casino Advisory Panel today agreed with the case set out by Manchester City Council and New East Manchester that Manchester provides the best location for the hotly contested licence to run the nationís pilot super casino and entertainment complex. Manchester City Council will invite proposals which will provide the maximum benefit for the Cityís most deprived communities and effectively ensure that those communities are protected from any negative effects of the development.
It is envisaged that the casino will form only a small, but important, part of a whole range of leisure and community facilities such as a world class training centre, multi purpose arena, a swimming pool, an urban sports venue as well as restaurants, bars, a nightclub and a hotel may be included on the site.
Councillor Richard Leese, Leader of Manchester City Council said: This is fantastic news for Manchester, and the region. We have always believed that Manchester offers a robust test bed for the successful implementation of this major leisure and tourism development. The casino will be located at the heart of a city-region with a population of 3 million. Manchester has an unrivalled track record in the delivery of major regeneration schemes so we are confident we have the expertise to deliver a world-class venue, creating thousands of new jobs for local people.
Sir Howard Bernstein, Chief Executive of Manchester City Council said This will bring massive investment to Manchester creating much needed jobs and training opportunities in the catering, hospitality and leisure industries. The proposed development will not only attract visitors, boosting the local and regional economy, but it will provide new state-of-the-art venues for the local community to enjoy."
The casino is expected to open to the public within the next three years, and is part of a gambling strategy by the British government that will see hundreds of smaller casinos open up around the UK.
