For the Cogit Group which owns the casino, uncertainty around its future is increasing. It is well aware that upheaval within casinos such as the ban on smoking in public places, entry checks…have caused them considerable harm. Their only solution to save their casino is to invest massively to re-launch their business. However this is very difficult given the level of tax that the commune wishes to put in place.
The Bateliere Plazza Casino will know its fate on the 30 of June. It is hoped that an agreement will be reached. If not the casino will be forced to close, which will have serious consequences: the 93 employees will be out of work, the entertainers in the shows will not be employed, the surrounding businesses will suffer and the commune will lose a lot of money.
