Hamilton Princess Hotel Casino appoints Century Casinos to manage gaming operations
The Bermuda Casino Gaming Commission (BCGC) had its first look at what its proposed casino industry might resemble when the Hamilton Princess Beach Club made its pitch to impress the judges.
The Hamilton Princess is one of four eligible casino hopefuls – along with the St. George’s Club, Fairmont Southampton and the Morgan’s Point hotel – although none of the four sites is guaranteed to eventually host gaming on their properties. So far, Hamilton Princess is the only one of the four to submit an application.
The pitch was made by Hamilton Princess Hotel Casino Limited, which has enlisted Century Casinos to manage the actual gaming operations. The Colorado-based Century has a gaming presence in Canada, the US, Argentina and Poland, as well as on more than a dozen cruise ships.
The plan calls for a 9,500-square-foot casino floor, which will be filled with nearly 200 slot machines, 14 gaming tables and an automated roulette table. There would also be a special area for VIP gamblers featuring three tables and three electronic gaming machines.
Should the BCGC grant Hamilton Princess a provisional license, the property believes it can be taking wagers by November 2018. The new venue is expected to provide between 80-100 new jobs, the majority of which would go to Bermudians. (E-10.03.17)
