From Vannes to Cannes, casinos hit the transfer market


Insight FRANCE Openings and transfers


Tis summer, as tourists flock to French resorts, operators have been preparing for the influx of visitors with the transfer of licences, the re-opening of once splendid establishments and the relocation of gaming activities - some motivated by pure economics, others prompted due to player demand


Te casino Partouche of Cannes (Alpes-Maritimes) opened on June 30 after Te Palm Beach closed its doors and relocated its slot machines and gaming tables closer to the city center, within the 3.14 hotel, owned by the group. Te new establishment has simply taken the name of its host and the 3.14 casino, just a few steps from the Croisette, François Einesy Street, now offers 75 slot machines, an electronic English roulette of 15 stations and no less than 30 traditional table games, including those located in three private rooms. While in summer, five tables will be sited on the famous roof terrace of 3.14.


Another transfer, on the other side of the hexagon, in Brittany, is Vannes (Morbihan). After opening a provisional establishment two years ago, once the ministerial authorisation was obtained, the Breton Society of Casino Operations (SBEC) set out to erect a definitive building for €13m. Te casino commenced operations on Wednesday, July 12 at 8pm, located behind the former premises. Slot machines numbers have increased from 75 to 100, the electronic wheel offers 12 stations instead of six and a third table of traditional games will be proposed. 35 employees were already employed. Teir number will double.


In two years, the temporary casino has already risen to 95th place within the ranks of the 201 French casinos, realising during the financial year 2015-2016 a gross gaming product of 7,708,495 euros. Tis opening of the definitive establishment will obviously progress that figure further.


In Grasse (Alpes-Maritimes), after closing on December 31, 2014, due to the lapsing of the gaming license, the casino reopened on Tursday, July 6th. It's always good news to see a casino reborn. Tis small establishment perched 29 kilometers in the hinterland of Cannes was taken over by Casino Victoria whose president is Tierry Guerrier,


shareholder alongside his brother Richard and Gérard Scribans, deputy general manager. All three have been working in the casino sector for many years.


Mr. Scribans, who will be the responsible director, recruited 20 people, including former employees. Te restoration aspect has been studiously followed, with quality products, tight holds and a wine bar with vintages found in small numbers, which can create a surprise.


Finally, the casino of Vernet les Bains (Pyrénées- Orientales) also reopened its doors on July 13. It had closed last October, after a long descent into hell, which had ended in judicial liquidation. Vernet is the oldest of the French casinos and ranked 201st. As a result of the closure, the director José Gimenez, who had spent 15 years working at Vernet les Bains. relocated to the casino of Font-Romeu. He has since applied for the resumption of the establishment and was retained by the municipality. Te casino is due to open with 36 slot machines out of the 50 licensed alongside two traditional table games, the Ball and a Black Jack. An authorisation was also been given for an electronic English roulette table.


Te mayor of Vernet les Bains, Henri Guitart, said the casino could not disappear from its spa landscape at the foot of the Canigou. "It's the oldest casino in France," he said on July 5, discussing the project with Journal of Casinos, ‘and the building is fantastic."


In addition, the municipality, which still has thermal baths in operation, is planning a 5-star hotel to attract a high-end clientele. Te casino was a necvessary part of this development.


Te establishment has already partially opened with gaming taking place at the bar area for a few weeks, after renovation and redistribution of space.

The town of Vannes, in Brittany , was granted the status of tourist and seaside resort in 2006, enabling it to site a new casino. The project, which represents €15m of investment by SBEC (Breton casino company), is expected to attract 80,000 visitors a year, something that worries neighbouring casinos in Carnac , Arzon, Quiberon and Larmor-Plage, and La Trinité-sur- Mer, operated By the Groupe Partouche. However, Arnaud Mandret, director of the new casino, believes its creation does not jeopardise the other casinos, but attract a new clientele likely to frequent and complement the other casinos in the region.


In Grasse (Alpes-Maritimes), after closing on December 31, 2014, due to the lapsing of the gaming license, the casino reopened on Thursday, July 6th. It's always good news to see a casino reborn. This small establishment perched 29 kilometers in the hinterland of Cannes was taken over by Casino Victoria whose president is Thierry Guerrier, shareholder alongside his brother Richard and Gérard Scribans, deputy general manager. All three have been working in the casino sector for many years.
