The Netherlands – Holland Casino able to reopen all 14 gaming floorsBy Phil - 10 June 2021
Holland Casino reopened all 14 branches on June 5 with the full range of games including table games. The restaurants and bars also opened again.
A reservation and valid test certificate are still required in the coming weeks. Holland Casino, which is celebrating its 45th anniversary this year, hopes that further relaxation can be implemented as soon as possible so that a negative test certificate to gain access will soon be a thing of the past.
Every guest of Holland Casino can have a quick test in advance free of charge via www.testvooraccess.nl at a location nearby. There are also often several test locations close to each of the Holland Casinos across the country. The test result may be a maximum of 40 hours old at the time of visit. Reservations can be made online in one of three time periods from 12 noon to 3 a.m. The restaurants and bars close at 10 p.m., in accordance with national guidelines. Holland Casino has a protocol for casino visits in which guests and employees are requested to adhere to the basic measures.
CEO Erwin van Lambaart said: “The long-awaited moment to reopen is finally a fact. Our professionals are eager to receive our valued guests again. A large number of guests indicate that they are really looking forward to another pleasant and complete evening out.”
“I am proud that, despite the severe financial headwinds, we have continued to serve the company in the long term, especially in times of crisis. In addition to major investments in preparations for our online offer, this concerns, for example, the strategic collaboration with ESPN Eredivisie, which also includes a lot of attention for prevention and information, and the construction of our two new sustainable branches in Venlo and Utrecht. We are also investing significantly in our Compliance department, with which we further deepen the quality of our prevention and anti-money laundering policy. It is precisely on this point that Holland Casino wants to continue to distinguish itself.”
