his eagerly awaited new gaming destination will be the capital's largest casino covering an impressive 5,109 sqm. LCI has invested more than us$ 29.7 million in the project which will offer guests a unique entertainment concept including an impressive array of gaming facilities, two restaurants, a destination bar, ice creamery, nightclub, dedicated poker room and VIP room.
The Las Vegas experience has been the central theme of the new casino with the management and design teams having first hand experience of gaming on the Strip.
State-of-the-art technology and the latest gaming innovations have been incorporated at all levels. It was important the casino not only included the finest finishes and materials, but would also provide players with the highest quality gaming equipment. As a result, TCS John Huxley was selected to supply all 30 tables for the main gaming floor including Roulette, Blackjack, Three card Poker and Punto Banco.
Each table was custom made ensuring the design and finishes blended seamlessly with the décor. To cater for all players needs, Saturn Roulette wheels, e-FX Multi-media displays and the newly launched Chipper Champ 2 provide the latest technology products along with 24 Novo Unity TouchBet Roulette terminals linked to 3 live wheels.
The Paul Steelman Design Group, regarded as market leaders in casino design were enlisted to create the stunning interiors which encompass a sense of entertainment whilst still retaining the luxurious and sophisticated surroundings.
Wendy Llambias, Complex Director, has been tasked with overseeing the project and was a natural choice for the role having previously been Director of Gaming and Marketing at the Aladdin, Las Vegas. "After living and working in Las Vegas for 3 years, I gained invaluable experience in entertainment and marketing that is unique to the region. Being able to offer visitors the chance to see live entertainment, visit a nightclub, relax in a selection of bars and restaurants as well as providing a large variety of gaming facilities is totally unique here. We have created a touch of Vegas in the heart of London."
The casino is spread over two floors, with the main gaming area downstairs along with an 80-player poker room which will host the first UK World Series of Poker in early September followed by the European Masters.
The multi purpose poker room is the largest in London and will be used for a whole host of events ranging from fine dining and private parties to special events - the card tables have been specially designed to adjust from poker tables, to dining tables and finally poser type tables for a bar setting.
