When it comes to land-based casinos, the most promising news come from Las Vegas and Macau, the world’s biggest gambling hubs. This is where new venues open on a monthly basis and where most of the highrollers flock throughout the year. Good news come from Southampton, where the gambling company Aspers plans on opening a super casino in the next couple of years.
They’ve already chosen a location for their latest venue, which is supposed to be the third-largest in United Kingdom. There are only a handful of places where poker players and other fans of gambling can put their luck and skill to the test in England, at least of this magnitude. The prospect of having a super casino in Southampton at Royal Pier is alluring for all those concerned, given the fact that this area is not frequented by tourists and derelict buildings are scattered all over the place.
The investment will generate plenty of jobs and it is expected that people from neighboring towns will also come here to gamble. A project of this size will have 150 slot games and plenty of table games, so those who happen to be nearby won’t be disappointed. Few companies were willing to invest in this area and that’s why the Associated British Ports Authority was thrilled at the prospect of Aspers bringing in millions of dollars.
The city Council also seems to be backing this project, although some formalities are yet to be fulfilled before the actual project commences. The company has the expertise and money to build something formidable out of scratch and past performance is an accurate indicator in this case. The Stratford super casino in London is a lucrative venue and a significant source of income for the local community and state coffers. If the Southampton project will be only half as profitable, the citizens will still have a lot to gain and so will the local leaders.
