Famous Carousel Casino and Naledi Casino will not reopen after lockdown

Saturday 18th April 2020

In a statement, the hospitality company addressed inevitable looming job losses, saying they have 'started the process of engaging gaming boards, relevant unions and employees'.

Sun International CEO Anthony Leeming said: 'Given the unprecedented crisis that South Africa is facing, we accept that the authorities have no option but to implement a country-wide lockdown to protect lives. However, the inevitable financial burden it placed on us has impacted our ability to continue subsidising under-performing properties".

Leeming also said Naledi, a slots-only casino had run at a loss for years, while the Carousel had also incurred losses 'for some time'.
