Ireland has been working diligently in order to improve their casino and gambling industry throughout their market. Europe as a whole has been dominating the gambling market for quite some time now Ireland is trying to jump in and get a piece of the action. Instead of starting small with the single land-based casino, they are already jumping on the bandwagon for online casino gambling and now looking to open a new super casino complex that will drastically change their gambling market.
As for the starting of any new project, there’s a planning board that needs to be approached in order to decide whether or not this casino public will become a reality. Ireland is now nearing the end of this phase in which they are hoping to get final approval on the casino complex. It has been an arduous task in order to get past the board due to the fact that they have many specific recommendations and changes that need to be made in order to gain their approval. Once completed this proposed super casino and cost nearly €460 million.
The governing body that is looking over this casino complex plan is known as An Bord Pleanala and have decided to move forward with this casino barring certain restrictions. According to the mission statement to the online site of the planning company, their goal is to be an independent body that make sure that any new construction and new projects fit within the principles that are outlined by the board in which they deem them to be efficient, fair and in an open manner.
The construction company is ready to break ground on this new complex and anxiously anticipating the approval of the board. Once it is completed it will have a great deal of gambling and entertainment for its patrons. So far in the plans there will be a replica of the White House, a casino floor, a hotel, a race course, a golf course, and a greyhound track. All of these venues will operate under the single umbrella and be governed by the board. There were plans for many other items within the complex, but the board has since shot them down. One of these ideas was to put in place an underground entertainment centre for the patrons to enjoy. As of right now the plans have been approved by the board barring 32 conditions that they must adhere to. Once these changes and adjustments have been made they will have the full approval of the board to move forward.
This casino complex can be very advantageous for Ireland as it will draw even more tourists to the area and help out their small economy. By building a casino complex rather than a small venue, they have much more to offer their guests and they give them no reason to need to leave the complex so that all their money will be spent on site. Much like Sandals resorts they will make it easy to spend money while you are on the property and make it much more challenging for the guests that want to venture off and try something that the property does not offer.
