UK Official: No Casino Front-Runner

6 October 2005

UNITED KINGDOM – As reported by the UK Stage: "Minister for Sport and Gambling Richard Caborn has said that there is no front-runner in the race to become host to the UK's first super-casino, as he appointed the panel to decide where 17 casinos created by the new Gambling Act will be located.

"The board's decision will affect entertainers across the country looking to perform in one of the new sites, which, as revealed in The Stage, will all have the potential to host live entertainment. In particular, the one regional casino, or super-casino, is expected to represent a significant source of work for light entertainers.

"…Wherever the casinos are located, they are expected to help create jobs and bring significant investment to the region. A survey recently commissioned by Glasgow City Council revealed that a regional casino in the Scottish city would generate £200 million for the area's economy."
