Christchurch casino due to reopen?

Christchurch casino has been closed since the devastating earthquake in February.

It’s closure has meant hard times for the 600 staff members, who were given the choice of redundancy plus 4 weeks holiday pay, or to leave the job without pay with the promise of a job when the casino reopens.

So far only hints that the casino might reopen have surfaced, with a location yet to be decided.  However, there have been denials that the location of the casino would have to change as there was no significant damage reported.

Meanwhile it is to be expected that many of the regulars to the casino, particularly the pokie rooms, will have switched their allegiance to online casinos, where online pokies are becoming increasingly popular.
