French operator Cogit has completed the first phase of work at its casino in Cherbourg in the Manche region of France.
It officially unveiled the first phase of the renovation works on Friday October 13 with the second part of the work beginning soon. It should be completed by April 2018 at which stage the casino will launch a brand new games room and a redesigned dining and entertainment area. In total, the amount of investment for this renovation is €4.5m, which illustrates the scope of the project. In the next few weeks, the casino will launch electronic roulette for the first time.
In a gloomy economic context, Henri Ernoult, CEO of the Cogit Group, said that “it is through investments such as this that we will manage to get out of it.”
Jean-François Cot, President of Casinos de France, who was also present at this reception, added that French casinos invest €100m in the renovation of their premises or in new slot machines and that the investment is the ‘engine of growth today.’
