The government has decided the Isle of Man should have a second casino.

 

The Council of Ministers has agreed to grant a licence and is now looking to find a company to create a casino resort complex.

 

CoMin wants the development to include a 4 or 5 star hotel, conference facilities and a mix of leisure activities.

Economic Development Minister Allan Bell thinks the creation of a new casino will stimulate the economy.
