is going to open a new branch at Kanaleneiland in Utrecht. The casino will be located at the Winthontlaan. Authorities in Utrecht discussed for a long time about the right location. At first they wanted to locate the new casino near the station, but these plans were dismissed.
New location in Kanaleneiland
Holland Casino is currently located at the Overste den Ouden Laan. However, the municipality of Utrecht wants it to move. It will be interesting to see how the arrival of Holland Casino will affect Kanaleneiland. Politicians from Utrecht are already discussing this. For example, what does it mean for the current location and how will it change the new location?
Holland Casino definitely offers some employment opportunities. The casino in Utrecht has more than 400 employees. So it definitely attributes to the economy of the city.
the Utrecht municipality wants to give the employees of Holland Casino continuity and is afraid to lose the revenues from the casino. This means that the new location has to be ready when the old one closes its doors. This will take some time, probably until 2019.
