London Clubs casino group in West End venture - Tuesday 12th of July 2005

Casino group London Clubs International is to apply for a licence on Monday for a major new venue in West End, a casino industry source said.

"Theyve taken a lease on a large slug of The Empire in Leicester Square -- everything but the cinema," said the source. "The hearing is solely for the gaming licence as they already have planning permission for a massive new development."

A London Clubs spokesman confirmed the company was making a new licence application on Monday, but declined to comment further.

Last week, London Clubs unveiled plans to expand existing casinos and launch four international-style leisure venues across the country, even as it revealed that big-money winners had dealt it a 1.4 million pounds loss for the year.
