UK.- Aspers Group announced that they will proceed with its intention of building a casino in Southampton. The company won a High Court challenge initiated by its rival company, which claimed that its own proposal was rejected in favor of Aspers’ casino.

Global Gaming Ventures challenged Aspers’ casino because they stated that its casino was already underway, and the latter still needed the permissions to start building the venue. Sir Jeremy Baker, the judge from the High Court, established that they didn’t have any rights to complain since the Southampton City Council had told them that the area where they were building wasn’t the best place to host a casino.

The British company received the license for the US$563 million casino back in March 2016. The facility is set to feature more than 150 slots along with 30 gaming tables. Richard Noble, Chief Operating Officer for Aspers Group, said: “We are very proud to have delivered two operational large license casinos in the United Kingdom and are very excited to now have the opportunity to bring a high quality Aspers casino to Southampton.”
