OEG opened its first casino in Slovakia
Posted on 20.06.2008
Entry into the Slovakian market is special by the fact that the activity license issued to the company is the first new gaming license that has been issued to casino operators in Slovakia in the last ten years. The high standards required from newcomers are shown also by the fact that until now this country of 5.4 million people had only two casino operators in Bratislava. The gross gaming revenue of the Slovakian casino market amounted to EUR 416 million in 2007, which is 32% more than in 2006.
The first Olympic Casino will be located in the four-star Radisson SAS Carlton Hotel and has about approximately 1,000 square metres of floor space. Visitors will have at their disposal 61 modern slot machines and 11 gaming tables. The casino also has a spacious bar and a stage for enjoying artistic performances.
With its 168 rooms Radisson SAS Carlton is located in the center of Bratislava, opposite the Slovak National Theatre and near the capital’s main business, trade and entertainment area. The first Olympic Casino in Slovakia will be 15 minutes from the Bratislava Airport and 30 minutes from the Vienna Swechat airport.
Olympic Entertainment Group (OEG) started preparations to enter Slovakia’s gaming market at the end of April 2007 by setting up a local subsidiary that operates under the name of Olympic Entertainment Slovakia. Olympic Entertainment Slovakia obtained the gaming license at the beginning of 2008.
