Resorts World Birmingham Casino will be the first of 8 planned casinos in the U.K. and Genting’s first venture into European territory.
Genting Casinos UK, a division of Malaysian resort conglomerate Genting Group, has started the construction of US$247.5m Resorts World Birmingham casino, which will be the UK’s largest, bringing jobs and a point of interest to this cultural centre.
Gambling enthusiasts in and around England’s West Midlands certainly have cause to be excited, as the UK will have a plush new casino complex costing US$247.5m. A good customer base of customers and well-regulated UK gambling laws are clearly making the U.K. an attractive proposition for such venues to be built, as 8 more large casino complexes will be built there.
For the Brits, this will be like a touch of Las Vegas
Birmingham’s plush seven-storey complex, 538,000 sq.ft complex with 170 four-star hotel rooms, 45 retail outlets, an 11-screen cinema, bars, restaurants, convention and meeting facilities will surely, as far as online gambling news is concerned, entice many virtual gamblers outdoors. This will bring a touch of Las Vegas pzazz to this old industrial heartland.
Genting Casinos operates the brand in Singapore, Manila and New York City. In Britain the company operates more than 40 casinos and sponsors Birmingham’s Aston Villa Football Club in England’s Premier League.
