Blackpool Fights Back With its Own Super Casino

Blackpool was not chosen as a Supercasino location, but has fought back with a £3.5m Grosvenor refit

Friday 29th June 2007

The decision not to locate a new Supercasino in Blackpool was met with shock and protest by many. However, the popular seaside town, famous for its seaside illuminations and tower, has fought back as Casino G on the South Promenade has had a £3.5m refit. It is now home to the UK’s largest poker room, with seating for 250 people. The Grosvenor’s management have said that they aimed to transform the Sandcastle Casino from the place for a gambling pit-stop into something with a wider appeal.

General Manager Dawn Higgins said: 'G is the new brand of casino, with a more modern concept. In this day and age casinos are no longer just a place to gamble, we offer an excellent restaurant, nice bars, regular live entertainment, as well as features like gaming rooms and card rooms.'

Improvements include a new restaurant, a mezzanine floor, a bigger stage for live shows and events, and a higher ceiling above the bar.

As the Supercasino decision has been so widely contested it is still possible that the Manchester decision may be changed, making Blackpool a clear favourite.

'We can't worry about that,” said Dawn. “I'm sure they would try out more than one venue if they were here.'
