Hungarian operator Aranybónusz 2000 Kft has just opened the Grand Casino at the Debrecen Plaza shopping center, located in eastern Hungary at a cost of HUF 750m.
The property has opened with 240 slot machines and four table games.
Aranybónusz 2000 Kft, which won the concession for ten years, has an option to extend it for another five years.
The operator has also won the tender for another casino in Nyiregyhaza, also in Eastern Hungary. The Debrecen Grand Casino has a workforce of 80 people.
The new gambling act in Hungary has allowed the issue of 11 licenses: five in Budapest and Pest County, three in eastern Hungary and three in the western Hungary.
Aranybónusz’s two casino licences were among the seven concession contracts granted by the National Economy Ministry in May 2014. The remaining five were awarded to Las Vegas Casino. Before this opening, there were three casinos operating in Hungary: two in Budapest, one of which is owned by Las Vegas Casino, and one in Sopron, near the border with Austria.
