French gaming company Partouche regained ownership of the casino in Dinant, Belgium, buying the casino after previous owner Luciene Barriere withdrew before its contract ended, which cost it ?1.7 million. The casino has 50 slot machines and eight gaming tables as well as a tavern and a restaurant overlooking the River Meuse.
Partouche already owns three other Belgium casinos. It has already closed the venue for renovation and will reopen it as Grand Casino de Dinant this month under a 20-year operating license.
The deficit under the Barriere operators reached ?1.8 million due to high taxation, strict regulation and slow growth.
