The Hippodrome’s online casino will be unveiled this summer

Bingo Hall operators take over Hippodrome casino project

(UK).- Father-and-son duo Simon and Jerry Thomas have bought out their United Leisure Gaming Ltd. partners in a us$ 21.8 million project to convert London’s historic Hippodrome into a casino, according to Property Week.

Having successfully developed the project to this stage as part of a consortium, and achieved all the necessary permits and licenses, my father and I decided that we would like to see through the redevelopment as the sole operator and launch what is destined to become one of Europe’s top entertainment venues,” Simon Thomas, former owner of Beacon Bingo, was quoted by the magazine as saying.

The historical building, which dates back to 1900, is scheduled to be converted into a casino with plans for slot machines, gaming tables, a poker room, a cabaret bar and a Gordon Ramsay restaurant with construction starting this summer, reported The Guardian in January.

Property Week said that the Hippodrome’s online casino will be unveiled this summer, while construction on the land-based casino isn’t scheduled for completion until early 2011.
