CLOSED IN 2010: San Roque casino

The San Roque casino has announced it will reopen its doors to the public next July.

The reopening of the casino, closed in 2010 after ten years of inactivity, will bring more than 200 jobs directly and indirectly to the surrounding area.

The first stone of the new complex was placed this week to mark the first phase of the project, which is set to cost around €5 million.

Austrian firm Novomatic is behind the project, which will also see the creation of a leisure centre, cinema, nightclub, spa and hotel with 50 rooms.

Admiral Casinos SA will run the casino, which closed after French group Partouche decided to lay off 40 workers following substantial losses.

Novomatic, Europe’s largest gaming group, operates in more than 80 countries.
