European gambling houses fell into decay due to the coronavirus pandemic

Gambling News and Lucky Stories

Gaming houses in Europe found themselves in the deepest financial hole due to the coronavirus pandemic in 2020, the European Casino Association said. In support of this, the organization cited data on how its members were affected by the spread of COVID-19 and the fight against it. Land-based gambling houses in Europe last year were open for an average of 136 days. The vast majority of the region’s casinos are closed in 2021, with the exception of establishments in Monaco, Luxembourg and Spain, operating with restrictions to prevent the spread of coronavirus infection. The income of casino operators in Europe, due to the fact that their facilities were closed in 2020 at the request of the authorities, decreased by more than half. Most of the gambling houses that are members of the European Casino Association do not know exactly when they will be able to resume their activities. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, there were 70,000 employees in the member casinos of the association, and after that there will be 50,000. The head of the European Casino Association, Per Jaldung, noted that gambling operators do not flatter themselves with illusions that everything will return to normal in the near future. However, representatives of the casino industry in the face of constant restrictions, which were strengthened and weakened by the authorities, were able to adapt to them and show that they can conduct business responsibly and safely, said Herman Pamminger, Secretary General of the European Casino Association. My Lucky Story wrote that due to the introduction of a state of emergency in the prefectures of Japan, pachinko arcades were closed. As reported, the worsening situation with the coronavirus in Argentina has led to the shutdown of casinos and bingo halls in the province of Buenos Aires. Recall that in the gambling zone “Silver Coin”, located in the Altai Territory, construction was stopped due to an outbreak of COVID-19.
