This was technically opened in September 2021 but due to measures imposed in response to Covid-19, Holland Casino was unable to conduct its usual grand opening ceremony.

However, the Netherlands has since relaxed restrictions. As a result, more than 1,200 guests were present to witness CEO Petra de Ruiter perform a Holland Casino tradition.

She placed the first roulette ball and spun the wheel to officially open the property in Utrecht; the latest of Holland Casino’s 14 locations.

This kicked off a party themed around “shine bright like a diamond,” during which guests were invited to sample drinks and snacks from the casino’s restaurants, such as LX Fine Dining & Champagne.

Accompanying this were performances by Dutch opera star Maria Fiselier, as well as Dwight Dissels, a singer and former contestant on The Voice of Holland.

De Ruiter, who took over as CEO from Erwin van Lambaart last month, remarked: “Since I started at Holland Casino on 1 September, I have personally experienced the hospitality of my colleagues.

“This festive evening was certainly no exception. Our people provide a safe and responsible range of games in a hospitable environment.”

Alongside its 653 slot machines and 41 gaming tables, Holland Casino’s newest location has its own power plant with heat-cold storage, as well as 700 roof-mounted solar panels and 62 charging points for electric cars.

With this in mind, De Ruiter said: “Holland Casino Utrecht is not only the dazzling diamond on the ring of Utrecht where many guests spend a pleasant afternoon or evening, it is also one of the most sustainable casinos in Europe.”
