Aspers could be about to reopen its Swansea casino at the same site at Salubrious Palace, having closed down the unprofitable venue three years ago.
The operator still holds the licence and believes the economic landscape is more positive and is considering opening a smaller scale operation.
Aspers stated: “We can confirm we are considering re-opening our Swansea operation in Wind Street. We were very sad to close Aspers Swansea in 2012 and deliberately retained our two operating licenses with a view to opportunities in the city should the local trading environment improve. Since 2012, Aspers has become the fastest growing casino company in the UK and has enjoyed phenomenal success with our ‘super casino’ in Stratford, London, as well as also successfully opening another large licence venue in Milton Keynes. We now feel that the economic landscape is much more positive, especially in South Wales, and are considering re-opening in Swansea with a smaller operation to cater for the local market. Internal feasibility studies are on-going and an announcement will be made in due course.”
The casinos closure saw 60 people lose their jobs.
