Aspers Casino officials have confirmed that discussions have taken place about opening the doors of its Swansea casino once again. The Wind Street site was successfully run for five years before it closed in 2012 as the economic climate raised concerns about the long-term sustainability of the business.

However, Aspers retained its two operating licenses and there are now hopes that a casino in the city could prosper, although thee restored venture would most likely scale back its costs to focus on providing a great service for locals.

An Aspers spokeswoman confirmed in the South Wales Evening Post that they were “considering re-opening our Swansea operation in Wind Street,” before adding: “We now feel that the economic landscape is much more positive, especially in South Wales, and are considering re-opening in Swansea with a smaller operation to cater for the local market.”

Aspers has a ‘super casino’ in Stratford, London, and opened a venue in Milton Keynes in 2012. There are also Aspers casinos in Northampton and Newcastle, and the possibility of the company returning to Swansea has been well received.

Swansea Bid (Business Improvement District) chief executive Russell Greenslade is confident that the move will be a success. He said: “It’s positive that Aspers are considering reopening in Swansea City in their old Wind Street premises. The recent announcements of the proposed exciting regeneration plans for the city centre and the recent recruitment of new businesses at Coastal Group’s Castle Quarter development has helped raise the profile of the city centre to operators such as Aspers, the fastest growing casino company in the UK.”
