The state-owned gambling and casino operator Holland Casino has started construction at its new venue in Utrecht, Netherlands. The gambling operator plans to open the new Utrecht gambling facility for the public by early 2021.
CEO Erwin van Lambaart has said that the new gambling venue would be different from the others in the country. He said that it would be “a unique place to go out with a unique concept and design, for a unique city.”
According to the proposed plan, the gambling facility at Utrecht will host 40 gaming tables and 700 slot machines. The company has also said that the new venture would create employment for at least 350 people. For recreation and dining, the gambling venue will have two restaurants and three bars along with 600 parking spots for visitors.
Commenting on the project, Lambart said that “The new casino will give Utrecht and the central part of the Netherlands a spectacular nightlife opportunity. It will be full of innovative game selection, entertainment and the latest concepts in food and beverage. It will also have our own-developed Entertainment Zone. A casino for all generations.”
In May, the Dutch government had to cancel its plans to privatize the Holland Casino. The government could not get the necessary support in the Dutch Senate. Earlier in February this year, the Senate had favored a move to provide licenses to other online casinos and gambling operators in the country.
