Southampton could join Milton Keynes and Stratford in London as the home of a 'super casino' if Aspers get their way.
The casino giant operates the UK's two existing 'super casinos' and has confirmed that it is interested in a £330m development on the south coast city's Royal Pier.Aspers’ chief operating officer, Richard Noble told the Southern Echo that Aspers have “been monitoring this redevelopment opportunity for several years and believe that the modern leisure facilities and the socially responsible gaming commitment we deliver to local communities would be a great fit for the Southampton area.”“I’m pleased that a major company like Aspers is willing to spend money in Southampton,” added Southampton city council leader Simon Letts. “When the competition opens we will welcome bids from as many organisations as wish to bid.”Holders of large casino licences are allowed to offer up to 30 poker and jackpot tables in addition to 150 slot machines with jackpots of up to £4000. In standard UK casinos only 20 slots are currently allowed.There are still plenty of hurdles before a new Southampton venue becomes a reality though. Planning permission has yet to be granted and only then can a formal competition to run the casino take place.A final decision on which company would operate any potential 'super casino' at Royal Pier could take as long as 'three to five' years added Letts.
