Marking the seventh Casino Admiral venue in the Netherlands, Thomas Komnacky, Novomatic’s VP of global operations, affirms the new opening reflects the company’s commitment to “a sustainable business strategy, even in economically difficult times”.
Casino Admiral Helmond officially opened its doors on 5 June. Located near the Dutch high-tech hotspot Eindhoven, the brand-new electronic casino, situated in the monumental original cinema and theatre complex of the former Scala Bioscope, welcomed over 70 guests at a festive midnight opening.
Casino Admiral Helmond is the seventh Casino Admiral venue in the Netherlands, and the most recent since Casino Admiral Hoofddorp launched in 2015.
At full capacity, the new venue is able to host guests at 190 player positions, making it the largest casino in the region.
“The opening of this new Casino Admiral venue in the Netherlands is further evidence that we are committed to a sustainable business strategy, even in economically difficult times,” said Thomas Komnacky, Novomatic’s VP of global operations.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions and strict safeguarding protocols, the property’s capacity is currently limited to allow for the necessary social distancing.
The interior design of Casino Admiral Helmond was inspired by the rugged look of old masonry, the industrial elements of ironwork as well as the lush art deco style of the roaring 20s, the era in which the famous Scala cinema was originally built. The result is a sophisticated mix of textures, materials and colours, which range from the original materials of the building’s core, to premium crafted plate work, chandeliers and a striking alcohol-free gin-bar that dominates the front wall of the main gaming area.
Lighting is provided by means of multi-coloured LEDs and realistic stained glass-like ornaments. Interactive light installations and video screens have been integrated to accentuate special occasions like jackpot hits and can be adapted to the time of day.
As the latest member of the Casino Admiral family, Casino Admiral Helmond offers the highest standards in terms of gaming equipment, hospitality and responsible gaming. The new team on site has been expertly trained by experienced staff members from other locations such as Casino Admiral Heerlen, Hoofddorp and Hulst.
The casino uses an advanced cashless system and offers the most popular reel games, video slots and electronic roulette as well a three-level linked jackpot – plus bingo on Sundays. The hospitality offer includes free food and beverages as well as regular events and raffles. With opening hours from 8.00am – 3.00am as well as free parking, Casino Admiral Helmond guarantees that its guests will have a great time in an exciting ambience and with premium service and equipment. “The casino is located in an exceptional building that has been skilfully adapted by our interior design specialists – in combination with our first class service and premium gaming offer I am convinced that it will soon become another milestone in our Dutch story of success,” Komnacky affirmed.
