Athens and Crete to Get Casinos

This story was published more than 2 years ago.

Greece is adding to its casino industry as the island of Crete and the city of Athens will be getting two new gaming locations.

The Crete location will be located on the north shore of the island, but details on the project are still scant. There were reportedly four bids that were submitted for the property, with Vivion Investments, Reds SA, Club Hotel Casino Loutraki SA, and Dimand SA all submitting bids.

The Athens project is more fleshed out, as it will be operated by Mohegan Gaming and Entertainment and constructed by GEK Terna. The resort will reportedly cost in the €1 billion range and will have a five-star hotel with more than 3,500 rooms. The plans are currently being looked at by regulators and approval for that project is expected to be given next month.

We're following these developments and will be updating readers as we learn more.
