It’s causing a nuisance across the globe, is the coronavirus epidemic. Various industries are being affected and the casino industry has not been an exception to this either, with the Goa government recently calling for all casinos to be shut till 31st March. A number of live events have been cancelled and a latest development over the weekend saw Kings Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic shutting its doors altogether.
Due to the state of emergency enforced in the country which also saw Czech Republic shutting its borders, Kings Casino and Casino Admiral Rozvadov are both shut to customers until further notice. If you remember, Kings Casino had initially placed a ban on only Italian visitors, but it’s now closed to all.
Amidst all the global fears surrounding COVID-19, this was the right move from the casino management to help restrict the spread of the virus. The move was made in compliance with the Czech government-issued restrictions on 12th March to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and both casinos have been temporarily closed since 13th March, until further notice.
King’s Resort in Rozvadov has the largest poker room in Europe with multiple cash game and tournament offerings for all. With hundreds of daily visitors coming to the venue, it was in everyone’s best interests to keep the casino shut until the situation gets better.
Just yesterday, we reported news about a tournament in Bay 101 Casino which was cancelled because one of the final 10 players had a fever. India’s Anshul Kulshrestha was among the final survivors and the tournament had to end with a 10-way chop, which you can read all about here.
There’s no word on when we can expect operations to resume at Kings Casino, but you can keep checking GutshotMagazine.com for all further updates on this story.
