Genting, one of the UK’s leading casino operators, is opening a new gaming venue in the Egyptian capital.
[dropcap]C[/dropcap]rockfords Cairo is being promoted as a luxury destination, deliberately connoting the exclusive Mayfair casino, Crockfords, in central London. The development is the first venture for Genting in the region and will be operated by Genting Casinos Egypt Limited, a subsidiary of Genting UK, the owner of Crockfords.
“This is a tremendously exciting development for Genting as we expand our reach into Europe and the Middle East,” Genting President and COO Paul Willcock said. The 12,500 square foot casino development is aimed at business travellers and wealthy tourists, and will be open 24 hours a day with full gaming facilities and 150 staff members.

The casino includes 30 slot machines, 10 electronic roulette terminals and 15 gaming tables. Table maximums will be “commensurate with the highest level of gaming available in Egypt,” said the firm.
As Crockfords Cairo is situated inside the city’s world famous Nile Ritz-Carlton, Cairo, guests will have direct access to the club from the lobby of the hotel. Crockfords Cairo also features its own dedicated frontage and drop-off point as its primary entrance.
