Luton's Grosvenor Casino ready to reopen on May 17 - here's what Covid-safety measures customers can expect
'We’ve been counting down the days to reopening and every passing day has brought increased excitement'
Luton's Grosvenor Casino has confirmed it will be reopening on Monday (May 17) in line with the Government's roadmap out of the pandemic.
After more than four months of temporary closure due to lockdown, friends and family will once again be able to meet up indoors at Park Street West venue to play their favourite games, such as blackjack, poker and roulette, whilst raising a glass to the easing of restrictions.
As well as gaming, fans of sport will also be pleased to hear that live sporting events will be available to watch when they visit the casino - just in time for the Euro 2020 football tournament.
The casino says Monday will also be a special occasion for its team members who will reunite with their colleagues.
Sharon Flowers, general manager at Grosvenor Casino Luton, said: “We’ve been counting down the days to reopening and every passing day has brought increased excitement. It has been a challenging time for all our team members, but we can finally look forward to reuniting again and getting back to doing what we love - creating a unique atmosphere for guests to have fun, play their favourite casino games and enjoy quality time together.
“We have been working hard to put in place robust health and safety measures, and when we reopen in line with government guidance, we will deliver a fun yet safe experience all of our guests and team members to enjoy.”
Arriving at the venue, all customers will be registered at reception before using the hand sanitiser which will be readily available, whilst regular cleaning will take place each day, including tables, chips and machines.
The casino will make screens available for customers to use on gaming tables and electronic machines, should they wish. There will also be restrictions on the number of people who can play games at any one time to ensure social distancing guidelines are adhered to.
Grosvenor Casino Luton will continue to accept cash and will encourage customers to use contactless payment, where possible. There will be safety shields at all tills to protect both team members and customers, and face masks will be worn throughout.
Guests will be able to enjoy food and drink with dining seating appropriately spaced. Pre-orders can be made at their table or from their machine, either using the online app, or by placing an order with the valet service.
