It is the size of 18 tennis courts, holds 1,400 customers, has 140 slot machines, 82 television screens, 75 electronic game terminals, 24 game tables and three bars, one of which serves no fewer than 29 cocktails.

Venue director, Patrick Noakes said: “We can’t wait to get it open, get the customers in here, show it off and deliver the services that go along side of it.”
