Partouche De Berck Casino Is In Trouble

Poker, Casino, Game, Luck, Play, ChanceWith the crisis that has yet to end and aggravating factors like identity checks, many casinos are no longer living, but must now survive. We have often reported in the past months of casino closings. Currently, another French casino is in great difficulty and on the verge of closing its doors if nothing is done. This is the Berck casino. It is an establishment which is today under the management of the Partouche group. The annual report shows that the situation is getting worse and worse.

A report that says a lot about the situation

The Partouche de Berck casino showed a very clear deficit. Tuesday evening, it was stripped during the city council. It also covers the period from November 1, 2013 until October 31, 2014. The end result is final, the casino is in great difficulty according to the figures. Indeed, it shows a deficit of 57.7% during the period mentioned above. Yet during the previous fiscal year it was even less catastrophic.

This very clear decline is the unsurprising outcome of the economic crisis which is currently affecting all French land-based casinos. But in addition to this, in June 2013, another situation did not facilitate the situation of the Berck casino. Indeed, the decrease in attendance was due to the opening of a casino in Fort-Mahon.

Poker, Poker Chips, Casino, Card GameThe figures for each game and in particular for the entries also prove this situation that the casino is experiencing. It should be noted that the activities on slot machines experienced a decrease of 9.86%. But on the gross products of table games, the figures are increasing with 20.88%. It is the same for the frequentation of the casino in general, the same downward trend has been recorded, as it is down by 10.66%.

This fragility of the Berck casino has not only an impact on the establishment, but also on the finances of the city. The levy has thus recorded a decrease of 10%. If the year before, the municipality received € 450,000, this rose to € 405,000 for 2013-2014. In order not to lead to a still complex situation, the municipality has decided not to increase the municipal levy. A quick solution is therefore necessary if the casino is to recover, at the risk of having to go out of business as well.

These 2 million pounds are the result of a gambling session within the establishment. The events also took place in February 2015. In his version of the facts, Al Gaebury made it clear that this loss of money is not his fault, because at the very beginning of the meeting, the officials have already been warned by the man that he was suffering from a gambling addiction. However, according to his statements and despite the information he provided, another official came to approach him to offer him a loan of 5 million of books. He pretended that Al Gaebury was playing very attractively.

London’s Ritz has a whole different side to the story. The establishment points out that Al Gaebury had an argument with a dealer who banned him from playing.

This time, they made him sign a certificate confirming that he was not an addicted player. But on the top, he began to write “ I’m an addict. I told you and you lend me this money all the same ”.

Since that time, Al Gaebury has also had to think about paying the interest earned on this debt. The amount is 200,000 pounds.
