Breaking: supercasino for Manchester
That was a curveball - with everyone putting bets on Blackpool or London (at the Dome), Manchester took everyone by surprise. Apparently Howard Bernstein was just too convincing. Greenwich’s bid partner was Anschutz Entertainment Group, owned by US billionaire and Prescott-schmoozing Philip Anchutz, who said in advance that it would take legal action against the government if it lost the bid. Blackpool will also fight on, reports said.

The winning bid group said it would regenerate a poor area of east Manchester, promising a £265m investment and 2,700 direct and indirect jobs. The casino would be based at Sportcity in the Beswick area of Manchester, close to the City of Manchester Stadium.

The Casino Advisory Panel recommended that large casinos should be licensed at Great Yarmouth, Kingston-upon-Hull, Leeds, Middlesbrough, Milton Keynes, Newham, Solihull and Southampton. Small casinos are to be located in the following areas: Bath and North East Somerset; Dumfries and Galloway; East Lindsey; Luton, Scarborough; Swansea, Torbay and Wolverhampton.
