MAJORCA'S Casino is clear to set up house at the Porto Pi Centre in Palma, the regional ministry for the Interior confirmed this week.
The owners of the Casino will now be setting the paperwork in motion to have their gaming and entertainment business at a premises in Calvia transferred to the cinema complex in Porto Pi, and to an adjacent property owned by the Vallehermoso estate agency.
Interior ministry director, Sebastia Amengual said that the decision comes in the wake of favourable reports submitted by the Balearic Business Federation (CAIB) which confirm that the Casino has met all the planning action required of them.
The news was received yesterday with great enthusiasm by the Salas and Salom families who are owners of the multi-cinema complex in Porto Pi. The contacts which were made halfway through the year with the aim of the Casino renting 2'200 square metres of premises have paid off, said Joan Salas. It's enormously satisfying that the plans are going ahead, he said.
The cinema complex at Porto Pi, the first of its kind to be developed on the island, are now outdated, so renting them for alternative purposes was the best solution possible, Salas said.
