Competition can only be good for the customers! Hopefully we will get bigger maximums and prize pools for competitions. If they get a car valet service going I may be inclined to visit it a bit more.

 

true, vegas is all the better for the casinos having to compete hard and offer deals and good payouts , maybe this will have a similar if smaller effect! :)

The obvious has to be said ... I do worry if Sheffield can sustain this new Genting Casino AND Napoleons AND the casino in Queens Road all in this recession where people have no disposable cash !

Hey, I'm liking you, I too worry about the casino bosses but don't get too concerned, there's always money for gambling.

thats the whole point, the casinos are also doing more in terms of quality food and a proper longe/bar/entertainment aspect, so lots of people do go and dont gamble, they just have a good night out. its all extra revenue on top of the people who do like a gamble

Is food a loss-leader for casinos? i.e. they don't make money on it, but is just a way to get people in the door, so they (the casino) can make money on gambling activity.

i would say not, they charge reasonable rates over here and any good restaurant thats busy and well run will make money. in vegas yes they throw food at you at daft rates in the buffets, but not in the top class restaurants, it can be very expensive to eat in them.

They is 2X vip opening days, one for invite only i know lots of hotel staff are going as i stay in many hotels they are been treated like royalty because they look after the hotels nearby where 1,000s of customers will stay , & 1 is for a basic sign-up on the website & 'THINK YOUR A VIP' & get a few pounds to spend when you enter.

 

Napoleons is ok, the staff are abit boring, the security are always friendly the staff or sometimes rude Its great you can put coins on the tablet from the beer change in your pocket.

 

G Casino - Great foods, good entertainment, But when the staff are in a bad mood, they don't make the customers feel any better, i can understand that after 12 hours of maths....me & my friends get spoken too badly sometimes, regular banter with regular customers, goes abit too far sometimes.

 

Napoleons Owleton won't struggle due to the huge following with the dog races.. but there second own branch will get hit hard.

Sheffield council allow a Malaysian multinational to setup a gambling operation, money is not even kept in our economy. It's a disgrace.

Not what We need, completely unethical too, especially in a recession. I for one will never spend a penny in there.

cant see it happening tbh. its created jobs, its legal, and its here. success or failure will be what determines if it stays, not people objecting, its too late for that now, the govt are behind plans to allow (limited) expansion of casinos and gambling in the uk
