Following the recent reopening of all of its domestic casinos, French operator Groupe Partouche has stated that, despite a loss of €88 million in the first quarter, compared to a loss of €3.9 million the previous year, ‘gaming activities have overall picked up and are on a very satisfying trend.’
The group’s casinos have all reopened. From May 19, slot machines and electronic versions of table games were once again available in France at 35% capacity. The casinos remained open until 9 p.m. despite the curfew, and catering was only permitted on the terrace.
Since April 19, casinos in Switzerland have been operating with no curfew but with some restrictions. Casinos have been open in Belgium since June 9, but they must close at 11:30 p.m. Djerba casino in Tunisia remained open throughout the first half. But it had to close for one week between May 9 and 16.
