Some casinos have established a “contract” with the city where they are located to afford to invest in activities. Action greatly appreciated by the people despite a reluctance to gambling establishments. This applies to many casinos in Switzerland and in the south-west France.
A casino located in Gujan-Mestras sees its turnover rose in defiance of the current crisis in a very large part of land casinos. Through its investment in local activities, the establishment sees its attendance increased rapidly. A connection between the casino and the inhabitants of the city that do not leave people indifferent.
The benefits engendered by this casino will be spread out in three areas.
Firstly, an investment in the entertainment of high periods, or during school holidays when tourists are present. One way to increase the number of holidaymakers in the city. To give some figures, the casino has to offer 45.000 euros for the opera scheduled during the summer and the famous fireworks show that concludes the oyster.
Then, given the number of slot machines has increased significantly in recent years, the tax on gross casino rose to 10%.
In conclusion, Senator Mayor Marie-Helene of Esgaulx, said the casino was a gift from heaven. Despite the protests and other refuse from the locals, the casino has created an important dynamic in the city.
However, the casino is very recent and should not be run with loss of tax increasingly important. The tax on gross casino will not exceed 10% for many years, according to Senator mayor. It is good to know that this property is placed second just after the famous casino of Bordeaux.
Finally, we appreciate this kind of action for a city that hosts a gambling establishment. We hope that the example will be followed by other regions to achieve sustainable development and attractive to residents.
