UK – Genting closes down Nottingham casino due to ‘commercial considerations’By Phil - 16 February 2023
Genting UK has closed down its casino at The Cornerhouse in Nottingham, due to ‘commercial considerations’ following consultation with staff.
A spokesman for Genting Casinos said: “We have finished a consultation process with all staff at our Nottingham casino. The process lasted for 30 days and we have explored all avenues and come to the decision that we will be closing the Nottingham casino due to current commercial considerations.
“Genting Casinos has a duty of care to all our employees and will be supporting our staff accordingly as we have done through the consultation review. Genting continues to successfully run 34 casinos across the UK, including in the nearby cities of Derby and Leicester.”
Casino members were sent a text message telling them the casino was now permanently shut but that points they’d accrued would be valid at all other Genting Casinos.
Genting was one of the first tenants at The Cornerhouse, which boasts restaurants, bars, a Cineworld and The Lost City Adventure Golf.
