The Casino MK celebrates success of first six months

Date Posted:10/03/2014

The Casino MKLast week, The Casino MK celebrated hitting another milestone as the venue has been open in the popular Xscape complex for six months on 5th March.

In that short time it has quickly established itself as the premier leisure and entertainment venue in the city by welcoming over 300,000 people over the six month period. With the introduction of new higher jackpot limits in early 2014, the slots have proved particularly popular and the venue has already had four jackpot winners, between them winning over £57,000.

As part of its commitment to being part of the community, the venue has created over 200 jobs, with the vast majority going to local people. By developing closer links with MK College they have directly benefitted students with skills training and providing ‘real-world’ opportunities. The Casino MK has also embraced the business community by sponsoring the upcoming MK Business Achievement Awards, hosting charitable events such as SportsAid, and becoming actively involved with tourism service provider, Destination Milton Keynes.

It also created the Milton Keynes CARG group (Community Action for Responsible Gaming) to constructively address problem gambling issues in the community it operates within.

Richard Noble, Chief Operating Officer at Aspers Group, commented, “We are delighted with the performance of The Casino MK in its first 6 months of operation, which has exceeded our expectations. The most pleasing aspect for me has been the overwhelmingly positive reaction of our customers, with over 96% of people visiting in the opening few weeks confirming they planned to visit again”

As the largest casino outside London, The Casino MK offers 108 slot machines, 22 gaming tables, 76 electronic gaming terminals and a Poker room to seat 150 players.  Plus the venue has a restaurant and two bars offering contemporary food and a vast range drinks and cocktails.
