By - 7 June 2016

Dragonara Casino has announced its plans for a Grand Re-Opening of Malta’s foremost casino.

The Dragonara Casino enters its 53rd year of operation on July 15 2016 after undertaking a large-scale refurbishment and product up-grading project.

The €10 m investment will provide the patrons of the Dragonara Casino with an unparalleled casino experience in the local market as the tradition of one of Europe’s established casinos is combined with the latest state-of-the art gaming products.

The new investment will include amongst other things a suite of the latest slots products available from the world’s top suppliers; a fresh interior set-up specifically designed to provide the best casino experience for live games casino players; a new poker room with spectacular sea views providing a unique environment; and a dedicated Sports Lounge and Casino Brasserie. The investment will also include a new central cocktail bar at the heart of the casino floor and the opening of second restaurant – The Marquis Terrace.

Dragonara’s Johann Schembri said: “When we took over the concession to operate and manage the Dragonara Casino, our vision was to create the foremost gaming and entertainment destination in Southern Europe. Our fresh investment of €10m coupled with an initial investment of over €15m is a clear and unequivocal sign of our outlook for the Dragonara Casino in what is a very intense competitive local market. We have grand plans for the future and our aim is to transform the Dragonara Peninsula into the foremost gaming and entertainment resort in Southern Europe.”

The live table gaming equipment was custom designed and supplied by TCS John Huxley.

Steph Nel, Senior Business Development Manager Europe, said: “We have enjoyed a successful long-standing relationship with the Dragonara Casino, having supplied products since its early days. We were delighted to work with the casino once again, providing the highest quality bespoke furniture for this latest phase of development and we wish the Dragonara team every success for the next chapter.”

The Dragonara Casino opened its doors on July 15 1964 in what was considered as one of the first major projects to establish Malta as a tourist destination. Dragonara Gaming Limited, a fully-owned Maltese company, took over the helm of the Casino in June 2010 and today hosts over 300,000 patrons a year.
