Gala Coral's £6 Million Gibraltar Venture Unites Core Brands

22 January 2009

Gala Coral Group has high hopes for a new Gibraltar-based development that -- for the first time -- brings together its casino, bingo and betting brands under one roof.

Announced on Thursday, the 35,000-square-foot venue, which will be open 24 hours a day, will offer a 450-seat bingo hall, a Coral sports lounge, training sessions, jackpot zones, a champagne bar and a restaurant. The company said the establishment represents its largest single unit investment to date -- £6 million.

“This latest innovation reinforces Gala Coral’s aim to ensure that our customers are offered the finest entertainment and gambling experience,” said Nick Pardo, operations director of Gala Gaming division, in a prepared statement. “People remain the key focus of our business. That’s also why in Gibraltar, as in the U.K., we continue to support the local community, train, develop and reward our teams and, of course, maintain a responsible approach to gaming.”
