A casino has unveiled plans for a £600,000 refurbishment - with the new look to be revealed at a launch event next month.

Management at Genting Casino Brighton believe the revamp will help establish the venue as the area’s premier gaming destination.

The casino, situated on Preston Street, which employs more than 30 part-time and full-time staff, is holding a special launch event on Thursday, August 14.

The makeover will transform the casino into a boutique style, contemporary destination, complete with new entrance and reception area and the addition of a stylish bar serving premium drinks and cocktails.

The major refurbishment scheme also includes a complete redecoration of the venue, new toilets, audio visual equipment and enhanced lighting.

At the heart of the casino will be the gaming floor. All of the popular casino games are available, from American roulette, blackjack, baccarat and three card poker, together with electronic roulette and slot machines with jackpots up to £10,000.

For those new to gaming, the casino offers learn to play sessions where customers can have fun while being shown how to play blackjack, roulette or Texas hold’em poker.

Will Cotton, general manager of Genting Casino Brighton, said: “This sizeable investment will create a smart boutique style casino that will appeal to high value players. “We have always delivered the very best customer service and we’ll now have an environment to match.”

Genting UK plc, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Genting Malaysia, has 41 casinos across England and Scotland and works closely with GamCare and other organisations to promote responsible gambling.
