Casino & Spa bids

According to the BBC, the Isle of Man government is considering seven bids to build a high-end casino and spa resort on the island.

In the House of Keys on 28 February it was confirmed the government is now in talks with applicants and tenders will be invited in March. Planning consent was given for the project about two years ago and the application deadline was 31 January. It is hoped the move will attract more tourists and help increase the island’s profile in the gaming industry.
