The municipal executive of Apeldoorn agrees with the establishment of a big casino in the heart of the city. In the near future the Apeldoornse Marktplein, in front of the town hall, will accommodate about 175 slot machines.
Gigantic gambling hall
The Apeldoornse Marktplein is going to be a gigantic gambling hall with several slots. The municipality of Apeldoorn thinks it’s a good idea to build 1 big and 4 small gambling halls. It’s going to have a maximum of 35 slots in total. This will be good for economy and tourism, according to the mayor of the city.
Expanding gambling halls
Last summer, the plans around gambling halls have led to discussions in Apeldoorn. Back then Fair Play Centers at the Caterplein wanted to expand. Other gambling halls said that if the municipality granted this request, they were also allowed to extend. Otherwise it would not be fair to them.
The municipality invented a new policy for gambling halls. They’re now allowed to extend their places, and install more slots. However, it now appears that not everyone has this privilege. This is why new complaints about ‘unequal treatment’ have emerged.
