The Novomatic Group has opened its third casino operation in the autonomous community of Andalusia in Spain after months on “intensive” renovation.

Casino Admiral Granada, the first casino property to debut within the region for almost 100 years, opened its doors for the first time recently as members of the public got a first glance at the gaming, betting, dining and leisure offerings.

In excess of 800 individuals, among them numerous invitees from the local politics and economy, attended the opening ceremony that intended to offer a taste of what locals and tourists can expect from this new attraction.

Located within close proximity to the city centre of Granada, the establishment comprises 110 video slots with five different jackpots, an electronic roulette installation and a broad live gaming offer with several tables for American roulette, blackjack and Caribbean stud poker.

Lauding an Admiral Arena as “another highlight,” the sports bar will broadcast a plethora of global events, with the casino to also regularly host poker tournaments for the local community.

Furthermore, Casino Admiral Granada also boasts a multi-functional event venue, equipped with event and show technology to organise social events, seminars or business presentations.

Manfred Schartner, managing director of Admiral casinos Spain, who welcomed the guests, underlined the importance of the community of Andalusia for Novomatic and Admiral: “In our new casino in Granada, we offer innovative premium entertainment. Andalusia is a very important market for Admiral and Novomatic: three of the six casinos in the region are operated by our group.”

Novomatic operates three casinos in the South of Spain with Casino Admiral Granada joining Casino Admiral San Roque, the company’s first acquisition in the region and Casino Admiral Sevilla, which opened its doors earlier this year.

The opening of the latter followed more than a year and €6m of investment as it introduced 7,000 square metres of gaming floors, poker areas, restaurants and show venues.
