According to Chairman Armin Karu, Olympic Voodoo Casino that officially opens its doors tonight is the largest casino in the Baltics and one of the most high-tech casinos in the whole Europe. „While until now the most remarkable casino in the Baltics was located in Reval Hotel Lietuva in Lithuania, Riga has now unquestionably taken over that position,�? said Mr. Karu.
The newly-opened Olympic Casino entertainment centre features 24 gaming tables and 115 high-tech slot machines, as well a fabulous sushi restaurant, a large bar, a comfortable lounge and separate VIP premises. In addition, the 1,800 square meters casino has a full-size stage offering a show programme designed specially for Voodoo and featuring drums and jazzy dance numbers at 10 pm, 11 pm and midnight.
Extensive rebuilding in Reval Hotel Latvija started 18 months ago. Olympic Casino Voodoo is located on the ground floor of the extension building.
The rebuilding of Reval Hotel Latvija cost around EEK 400 mln and added 205 new hotel rooms. As a result, Reval Hotel Latvijas has 587 rooms with 1,018 beds and a 3,700 square meters conference and event centre. Also the popular Skyline bar on the 26th storey got a facelift.
The presence of Olympic Casino in Latvia expanded notably after it took over Latvia’s second-largest casino operator Baltic Gaming AS last December. Under the contract Olympic Casino acquired 32 slot halls that until then operated under the Bumerangs brand and the Voodoo casino in Reval Hotel Latvija. The objective of Olympic Casino in the next few years is to become a market leader in Latvia as it has done already in Estonia and Lithuania.
Olympic Entertainment Group, the largest casino operator in the Baltic states, operates 19 casinos in Estonia, 40 casinos in Latvia, 8 casinos in Lithuania and 6 casinos in Ukraine. Olympic Casino employs around 2,000 people in the Baltic states and in Ukraine. The company has obtained a certificate under the international quality standard ISO 9001. Olympic Casino is the sponsor of the Estonian Olympic Committee and full member of the European Casino Association.
