Short-list for super casino.

A SHORT-LIST of eight sites competing to host the UK's first Las Vegas-style super-casino has been unveiled.

The Casino Advisory Panel, the independent advisory body to the Government, said a provisional short-list of Blackpool, Wembley, Cardiff, Glasgow, the Millennium Dome, Manchester, Newcastle upon Tyne and Sheffield had been whittled down from 27 applications to host the venue.

Only one super-casino allowing up to 1,250 unlimited jackpot slot machines is being permitted under the Gambling Act and a decision is expected by the end of the year.
