In a statement, Genting Casino revealed that it had explored all other options before settling on closure.

“We have finished a consultation process with all staff at our Nottingham casino. The process lasted for 30 days and we have explored all avenues and come to the decision that we will be closing the Nottingham casino due to current commercial considerations,” a Genting spokesperson said.

“Genting Casinos has a duty of care to all our employees and will be supporting our staff accordingly as we have done through the consultation review. Genting continues to successfully run 34 casinos across the UK, including in the nearby cities of Derby and Leicester.”

The casino’s members were notified of the closure on February 13. They were also reassured that their points and offers accumulated in the casino could be used in other Genting gaming venues.

Nottingham still has several other gaming venues open despite the Genting Casino shutdown. These include Alea Casino, located on Upper Parliament Street; Grosvenor Casino by Maid Marian Way; and Clumber Street’s Admiral Casino: The Lion Nottingham.
