Another very difficult month for Italian casinos, with the continued closure of the Casinò di Campione and the announcement of the start of the arrangement with creditors procedure as regards that of Saint Vincent.

VENICE – Gaming collection of the Casino di Venezia decreases in October, which is still in second place this time, and firmly remains in first place with regard to the annual trend, a result that matches the good balance results. In fact, the month ends with a collection of €7,905,608, that is 7.44 percent less than in October 2017, and also entrances decreased by 13.54 percent, of 58.687.

SANREMO – The Casino di Sanremo is in the last position, whose investments and corporate and political pax don’t seem (yet) to produce the expected results. In fact, the collection stands at €2,768,337, a decrease of 8.78 percent compared to the same month last year and which goes hand in hand with the negative sign also recorded by entrances: 12,045, that is to say 10.54 percent less.

On the contrary, from November 2017 to October 2018 the Casino collected €42,799,997, 4.02 percent less.
CAMPIONE – Obviously, we can’t unfortunately write anything about the dramatic October of the employees of the Casinò Campione d’Italia. The gaming house closed its doors on July, the 27th, and the political and judicial process to reopen it are still opened, but with an uncertain outcome. In 2018, the casino collected €45,460,976, 39.70 percent compared to a year ago. A result inevitably destined to get worse.
