Competition for United Kingdoms Super Casino Heats Up

Local authorities battle it out as the competition to determine the site for the first super casino in the United Kingdom. The stiffest competition is between West Dunbartonshire, Midlothian and Glasgow. Other towns like Renfrewshire, Falkirk, Dumfries and Galloway have applied for a smaller casinos.

The pool of applicants is not that small though. Over twenty different areas in the United Kingdom have submitted bids to be the site of the new casino.

Out of the twenty seven bids, only one bid will be granted. The town that wins in the bid will have the right to create a super casino that will house four thousand slot machines that will offer unlimited jackpots.

Aside from the super casino, eight areas will be permitted to build a large casino and eight small casinos.

Each of the eight large and small casinos will house slot machines that offer a maximum jackpot of 4,000 pounds.

The United Kingdom had set up a Casino Advisory Panel following the passage of Gambling Act. The Gambling Act is a set of gaming laws that will control the number of super casinos in UK.

As of the moment, Blackpool is considered the favorite spot for the super casino, but the local authorities of each town claims that they need the tourism, casino revenues and the jobs the casinos would bring to their respective towns.

In the meantime, as the competition between the towns heats up, the Church of Scotland is concerned with the possible addictive effects of gambling on the people.

The Church is concerned about the negative effects of gambling to the financial and personal well being of the people.
