The operators re-joined the group after an industry forum at Casino Baden in Austria, which saw the association approve membership to the returning companies, including the Aspers Group, Crown Aspinalls, Genting Casinos UK, the Hippodrome Casino, Les Ambassadeurs, Mayfair Casino, Rank Group and Metropolitan Gaming.

Per Jaldung, Chairman of the ECA, commented on the returning operators: “It was a great disappointment when the UK left the ECA in 2020, and from the outset, we have been working to bring them back.

“The UK has a thriving land-based gaming industry, and we are extremely proud that our joint efforts have led to the successful re-entry of the UK as a full member of the ECA. UK casino operators have a lot to offer to the network of continental European operators, and we are thrilled to extend our membership to include the UK.”

The move to re-join the ECA was spearheaded by Hippodrome CEO, Simon Thomas, who added: “I am delighted to be back in the fold of the European Casino Association. As the representative for the eight UK casino operators within the ECA, we are stronger together through shared experiences.

“As a full member, we will be capitalising on the knowledge base of the European land-based sector and the incredible value it creates for its members. I’m delighted to be back as a member of the ECA and look forward to the next General Assembly at ICE London on February 7th.”
