Leeds ‘supercasino’ profits will fund help for gambling addicts



Have your say

A MULTI-MILLION pound ‘social fund’ from Leeds’s new supercasino will be used to fund support groups for gambling addicts and fight poverty in the city.

Global Gaming Ventures - which won the licence to run the casino last year - has promised to pump at least £450,000 a year into the community pot, to add to a £1 million upfront payment it has already made to Leeds City Council.

The casino will form part of the new Victoria Gate development in the city centre, and is expected to open in May 2016.
