UK – Scarborough’s Opera House Casino to fulfil ‘small’ casino licenceBy Phil - 24 January 2019
The Opera House Casino in Scarborough, one of the so-called ‘small’ casino licences issued by the government in 2005, is to receive a £250,000 investment.
The venue, which opened in October 2005 after an investment of £7m, has decided to finally activate the ‘2005 Small Casino Licence’ giving it licence for more slot machines and a new private gaming area.
Steve Mosley, Managing Director, said: “The investment and activation of the new casino Licence enables the team to take another step in the evolution of the famous venue in the town and will allow us to increase our gaming and entertainment choice for our customers. We will be supporting the new offer with an engagement campaign and new menu, as well as supporting the Yorkshire Coast Business Improvement District (BID).”
Clive Rowe-Evans, Chair of the Task Group at the Yorkshire Coast Business Improvement District (BID) added: “It is good news for the coastal region and it’s important we continue to invest in our entertainment and leisure sector for both residents and visitors in Scarborough and the Yorkshire Coast. We welcome the expanded offer and ongoing investment by the Opera House Casino.”
