A seafront casino [re-opened Thursday] “just in time for the festive season” after being forced to suddenly close due to the discovery of potentially crumbling concrete.

The announcement of the closure of Genting Casino, on Western Esplanade, in Westcliff, sparked an outpouring of worry at the start of the month, however in just two weeks the business is now ready to re-open.

Speaking to the Echo yesterday, bosses confirmed that it will re-open tonight with all casino games on offer, restaurants, and entrance bar open.

After the discovery of reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete, the main bar area is remaining closed but is expected to re-open later this month.
