The investment in opening the Jõhvi Olympic Casino amounted to more than 8 million Estonian kroons. According to the executive manager Tarmo Kase Olympic Casino is now operating in four towns all over Estonia. “The main market continues to be in Tallinn, in Tartu we are represented by two modern slot casinos and there is one in both Jõhvi and Narva,” Kase noted.

The new slot casino opened today at noon and in its 164 square metres of floor area one can try one's luck on 36 newest slot machines. In addition there is a spacious bar in the casino and the currency exchange is open all day and night. The casino is employing 14 Jõhvi inhabitants.

Jõhvi Olympic Casino with its tropical décor is located in Jewe centre at Narva rd. 4A. The centre was constructed at the site of the former Jõhvi bus station and its 12,000 square metres of floor area will also host a Selver food store, night club Kruzo and the bus station.

The official opening party of the centre will take place on May 19 with an exciting opening tournament, also featuring the charming JZ BELLE. Nevertheless opening surprises are awaiting customers starting from today by the various smaller tournaments staged. Jõhvi slot casino is connected to the mystery jackpot linking all Olympic Casinos and the car jackpot system, thereby providing Jõhvi players with the greatest additional winning opportunities offered in Estonian casinos.
