Casino news from around the world
The casino industry around the world is constantly changing, looking to improve and make it accessible to more players. In recent years, the image of casino games has improved significantly and gambling has become a great source of entertainment for countless people. The potential to win large amounts of money with every bet is just one of the things which make gambling so exciting and it seems that more and more casinos are being created to satisfy the increasing demand.
India will open its first world-class resort and casino
The first world-class casino in India is expected to open its doors in 2014. It is located just outside the state of Goa and it shows that the country is looking to boost the tourism in the area. Delta Corporation is behind this new casino and the company also owns three offshore casino boats, so it has plenty of experience in the industry and should provide a great venue for interested players.
The resort, which is located in Daman, will have a gambling space of 60,00 sq-ft and a hotel with 187 rooms for the many tourists expected to take to the casino games. If everything goes well and the resort and casino are successful, more similar venues are expected to be built in the region and also in nearby countries, like Sri Lanka and Nepal. Delta Corporation is already looking into the casino market in Sri Lanka for the chance to set up shop in the near future, and has acquired some property in the country.
However, most of the company efforts are now focused on the casino and resort in Daman, which should be open in early 2014, if everything goes as expected.
The smallest bouncers in Britain
While new casinos are being built in certain markets, one of the most popular land-based casinos in the world is looking to make things entertaining right from the casino doors. The Hippodrome Casino in London is the largest casino in the United Kingdom and has been known to come up with interesting new ways to promote its activity.
The casino had a similar campaign where the employees manning the entrance were under 4ft. 10 in. and it went so well that the management is now considering making it a full time thing. An ad has already been posted in the Metro daily in order to look for “Britain’s smallest bouncers”.
Needless to say that the marketing campaign is not without blacklash and the casino understands that there will be some concerns on the matter. However, CEO Simon Thomas quickly pointed out that the Hippodrome Casino does not intend to promote any form of discrimination and that it actually aims to highlight the unique scenario in which little people would man the entrance for a venue that is visited by 35,000 people every week.
The move is also expected to make things run smoother since nobody will pick a fight with someone small, like they would do with the massive bouncers at the clubs in London. The fact that no one will mess with a dwarf, makes them great doormen, according to the CEO.
