On the island of Oléron, in the town of Saint-Trojan-les-Bains, the Arevian group team is busy finishing the final preparations for the opening of the casino. Indeed, April 27 was the expected date. The inhabitants can finally rejoice, because they will have access to the game and economic development can take off a little more.
A casino after 18 years of waiting
It took 18 years of waiting for the seaside resort of Saint-Trojan-les-Bains to finally get its own casino. However, the project was not born yesterday. It was in 1930 that the city authorities decided to open a gambling establishment there. The construction was carried out to accommodate a casino so that the resort could also start its economic development.
The political turn meant that the establishment never opened its doors. In place of the casino, a cinema integrated the walls of this new building at the time. After more than 18 years, the city finally decided to set up a casino there in 1997. The management project was awarded to the Arevian Group, which now has 9 establishments with that of the island of Oléron. The casino is located near the beach, on Boulevard Pierre Wiehn .
An opening scheduled for April 27
The group is currently in the process of finalizing the last details of the casino in order to welcome visitors on April 27, 2016 . This establishment will be a real boost at the economic level for the municipality of Saint-Trojan-les-Bains. It will generate new jobs, especially since new croupiers have already been selected. They are currently undergoing training which will enable them to perform their duties.
For the municipality, it is also an opportunity to generate money in the coffers. Indeed, she will be able to collect a little more than 200,000 €. The casino’s games offer will be diversified. It will also have around 75 slot machines. Visitors will also be able to enjoy several blackjack tables. The doors of the casino will be open every day from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.
The evenings will be longer during the weekend, especially Fridays and Saturdays when the closing time is extended to 3 a.m. to bring diversity, the Arevian group also plans numerous events each year. Today casinos have indeed changed their strategy. Everything no longer revolves around gambling. From now on, all sectors, whether entertainment, restaurants, games rooms, performance halls and other spaces will contribute to the dynamism of a casino.
