The proposed casino in Dudley, United Kingdom, received a 24-hour gambling and alcohol license.

UK.- After director at Casino 36 Adrian Ballard revealed that he was seeking a £12 million investment to build a gambling venue in Dudley, the company has now moved a step closer after it secured alcohol and 24-hour gambling licenses.

As local media The Shuttle reported, Castle Casino is set to relocate to Castlegate Park and relaunch as Casino 36. The new building will be build opposite the Village Hotel, and will create approximately 100 new jobs. The 450 seat bingo hall will be featured on the first floor whilst the casino would be placed in the second one, and will offer blackjack, roulette and slot machines.

The casino director said that it is a good thing to receive the licenses from the Dudley Council. “To have these licenses granted and in place is another box ticked. It means we are even closer to the ambition becoming a reality. The location provides a perfect platform for a successful casino and bingo hall to be built upon, which will prove to be a massive asset to the town.”

The casino launched its operations in November 2016 and created approximately 100 jobs at the Lower Temple Street site. The new facility is expected to open sometime during 2018.
