Aspers group, a British developer, specialised in casinos, has won the bid to build a large casino in Southampton, the largest city in Hampshire. The development is proposed for the Royal Pier Waterfront in the city. The Aspers Group managed to beat other big casino developers, including Grosvenor, Kymeira and Global Gaming Ventures.

The agreement Aspers entered with the local council includes £100k, upon receipt of the license, and another £150k as soon as the Royal Pier Waterfront project, which comes in at an estimated cost of £450k, opens in 2021. Furthermore, the local council will receive 2 percent of the casino’s gross gambling revenue, as well an additional annual £50k for a new forum, which addresses responsible gambling and other community issues.
